Ease into Pre-Fall with Culottes

IMG_0577

As we move from summer to fall, we look into our wardrobes for transitional pieces to introduce us to the new upcoming season. We look to pieces that provide functionality, are tasteful, and can accommodate appropriate temperatures- we can find all of that in the airy pant known as culottes. Culottes remain in focus this pre-fall season, giving a look of ease, comfort and style. Also known as “calf-skimming trousers” culottes offer a fun mix between pants and skirts, they sometimes give off the impression of a midi skirt. Choose a high-waisted pair, they can easily be worn with a nice crop top, classic shirt, or a nice high waisted belt. The wide legged pants with lots of flow and movement offer a nice alternative to skirts and trousers- appearing as a combination in between the two. They create a perfect look for the office, a day running errands, or a fun night out. Avoid cluttering this look and pair with simple top, handbag and flat shoes.
