Show of those legs and flash those ankles this season with a pair of cool culottes. From bold to basic, day to night, these are the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe. Team them up with a plain t-shirt and leather jacket for that perfect autumn/winter look when strolling the streets or a bralet and court shoe for that classy culotte look at night.
This must-have item comes in plain and printed styles along with its versatile shape just adding to the list of reasons why every girl must own a pair. Don’t let the length put you off (attention short girls!) as these bad boys come in a variety of materials and sizes. Find a pair with a high waist and add a pair of great heels to elongate your body and make your legs look fabulously longer.
When wearing in the day time, denim and leather culottes are ideal for the ever changing weather and combined with a roll neck knit or a simple but stylish tucked in shirt, you are ready for the day ahead. For a glamourous night out, choose a material such as silk for your culottes to add sophistication to your outfit, in a block colour or pretty pattern rather than basic casual colours. Pair them with sassy court heels or thick-heeled platforms and add dark lipstick and accessories to complete your chic night time get-up.
