There is a strange and cool, resurfacing trend that leaves many of us puzzled. Like an unexpected time warp, Culottes have found themselves back on the high fashion runways of 2014. Seemingly gone forever, the style you may remember your Mother (or even yourself sporting) made its way to the vaults of fashion soon after the 1970’s. My Mom worked in fashion. For the first day of school in my new 5th grade class in Sag Harbor, NY, she dressed me in a bright red t-shirt and black & white check culottes – I was mortified as the new girl, but she seemed pleased with her outfit choice and she was always ahead of her time!
Not the first surprising comeback we’ve seen recently (I’m talking about you, Harem Pants), thankfully the latest Culotte incarnations come in an exciting and versatile array of casual, work-appropriate, and super fashion forward. Still unsure of what exactly a Culotte is? Just think any garment that hangs like a skirt, but is actually short pants. They are a tricky garment to incorporate, so I’ve put together a visual lesson. Enjoy!
Which look would you rock? Enjoy the weekend’s beautiful weather. Here’s to hoping for another epic sunset to pair with tonight’s Full Moon!
