New Mantra : The Culottes

A cross between the elegant tailored pants and the more relaxed pair of shorts, the culottes have been spotted everywhere these last couple of seasons, from the long limbs of style guru Leandra Medine to the spring catwalks of Gucci and J.W.Anderson. But culottes can be a bit tricky : what style? what length? Read on to discover our ways to wear them! 

TAILORED : the more traditional option. Perfect for workwear, the tailored culotte has to have the right shape : the high street has caught on and offers a couple of culotte suggestions – light hues at Mango, with high pockets at H&M – or you can opt for the more luxe versions : either slightly cropped at J.W.Anderson, or in bouclé wool at Stella McCartney.

DENIM : in our humble opinion, the best way to pull off the culotte trend is to head to the denim section. Slightly heavier, denim culottes give a more structured silhouette : browse MIH Jeans‘s cool selection of blue jean culottes in a array of different shades, or go safe with a pair of Topshop Motos (we like the ones with the frayed hems for a Marques’Almeida-like feeling).

COLORFUL : we can’t resist a challenge – flowing trousers + a stand-out all-over print can be hard to work on a daily basis, but Topshop proves that you needn’t be afraid of a bold pattern. For those less daring, play it simple and pick a colored culotte instead. The secret lies in the details : minimal accessories seal the deal!
