The best fashion is the kind that marries comfort & effortless style! Culottes may not seem enticing at first given the sometimes, awkward length and Indian body types but swear there are some hacks that can make them your summer/monsoon essentials.They are comfy and verstaile which is exactly why they have currently replaced my stack of denim and trousers!. So here are the 6 ways in which we find styling culottes the most flattering and easy!
With a Fitted White Tee
A complete no brainer yet something that gets ignored for being too simple is a white tee! A well fitted white tee or shirt tucked into the rather shapeless culottes can help balance the silhouette with ease. It will accentuate your waist and you can even pair it with any printed culottes!
With an Outerwear piece
We love this trick because it instantly makes this casual style of pants appear more put together or formal. A well fitted Blazer, a crochet shrug or even a sleeveless vest, any of these would work and will take you from plain jane to yes ma’am!
With a Peplum style top
A peplum style top could work for all body types too! If you’re on the skinny side, it can help add some curves and if you’re already blessed with curves, adding a belt can help you accentuate that further. Don’t be afraid of mixing prints and colours
With a Slogan Tee
A simple pair of black culottes is a good place to start. Simple, chic and effortless, this look is easy to throw on and also let’s me amp up the accessories!
With a Shirt
This is yet another easy peasy trick! Pairing a culotte with a shirt can go quite wrong if you don’t use a belt or pair it with a super well fitted shirt
With a Cropped top
Last minute dinner or drinks plan? Cropped tops and culottes for the win! Culottes are high waisted making it easier to pair it with cropped tops. Cropped tops also add that sexiness that this otherwise boxy bottom wear lacks!
