Rock The Culottes Trend From The Runways Now
Although culottes may have made a stylish splash on the Spring/Summer 2015 runways, the flowing three-quarter pants are also a sartorial staple for the colder months of the year. If you’re looking to rejuvenate your winter wardrobe as we head into the final few weeks of the season, culottes are an easy way to merge the end of winter with the arrival of spring. Here are a few chic runway inspired ideas which will help you embrace this trend now.
For a day of shopping and lunch, try taking your style to the next level by channelling the Tibi runways. Swap your yoga pants for an equally comfortable pair of pleated burgundy culottes, paired with a cable knit eggplant-coloured turtleneck sweater. To wrap up your outfit and to instantly complement the enriched hues in your ensemble, accessorize your look with gold hoop earrings and chunky burgundy clogs.
If you’re ready to officially retire your black skinny trousers, follow the shining example from the Victoria Beckham catwalks and step out in a sleeveless grey tweed culotte jumpsuit. The thicker fabric and dark neutral colour keeps the style looking conservative and chic, while a high neckline and loose trousers complete the look. To keep your legs from freezing, pair your elegant ensemble with a pair of black leather midi boots.
For the after hours, bring this versatile trend to the next level in a pair of high-waisted black culottes (as spotted at Valentino). Style your trendy bottoms with a silky, flowing white crop top with long sleeves and a demure high neckline. Meanwhile, a black and white checkered box clutch and shiny black ankle boots bring a touch of final polish to your overall look.
