Before I go ahead and share the styling tips with you, I need to make a confession. I am getting obsessed with the culottes. They are super comfortable and look so so stylish (yes, I know I have been repeating this but I just can’t resist myself from writing this again and again). And beware, once you get used to them, there is a very high chance that you will not want to get rid of these cool pants, ever.
Moving on, here are some tips for you to style these trendy culottes.
- Crop it up.
Use those crop tops from your closet and pair them with the culottes and give yourself a stylish and trendy look. You can try sleeveless ones or even full sleeved ones and you are sure to look good.
- Add style with the simple stuff.
Yes, you heard me right. Use the simple stuff you have in your closet like the simple shirts, tank tops, tees, tube tops and pair it with the culottes and give yourself a makeover. You can try using contrast colored tops, you can use printed tops with solid colored culottes and vice versa. You can mostly tuck in the tops for a cleaner look. However, with some tops, you can even try not tucking it and yet look good. Do experiment with the looks and create your own unique style. You can add some accessories to further accentuate your look.
- Match the pieces.
Pair up the culottes with a shirt or top of same color. Remember to tuck in the top. You can add a statement belt to enhance the look. You know what? In this way of styling, you are just adding one more personalized jumpsuit to your wardrobe. Isn’t that great?
- Play with the length and flare.
The typical culottes are calf length. If you are afraid of trying this tricky length, do not panic. As I mentioned before, you get culottes in varied lengths. You can try different lengths and buy the one which you like the most. The different lengths available in culottes include short length, knee length, bermuda length, ankle length and the typical calf length.
Apart from this, you also get culottes with different flare structure. Some of them almost look like skirts, some have lesser flare and maybe look like normal pants with a hint of extra flare. You can try different styles and get the one which suits you the best (I definitely love the flared ones).
- Tassel it.
You can mix up the culottes and tassel trend by wearing a tasseled top with culottes. Try wearing a sleeveless top. Also, ensure that the length of the top is not below your mid-thighs (maximum).
- Add some statement tops.
Yes, you heard me right. You might be wondering why you need to pair up the culottes which are in themselves a statement piece with yet another statement piece (top). Believe me, you will get a very glam look using this tip. You can pair up a peplum top, knotted top, a top with a big bow in the front (horizontal or cross bow) or maybe some asymmetrical tops and see the heads turning towards you. 😉
- Show off the shoes.
Yay! This is my favourite part. No matter how you pair up your tops with the culottes (whether you pair a simple tank top or a matching top, etc) you can definitely add power to your culottes look by wearing different shoes. The tricky length of the culottes calls for showing off your feet. And why not show off your feet in style, right? You can wear heels, wedges, flats or even sneakers with your culottes and give yourself a different look every time. So go ahead and show off your shoes to the world while you rock the culottes trend.
A small reminder: You all know this. But still, I thought I should remind you once. You can always spice up the overall look with different accessories, jackets/ blazers/ cardigans, some make up. And don’t forget your lovely smile. 🙂
I hope I have given you enough reasons not to shy away from the culottes trend.
Go ahead, just grab that pair of culottes. You really just can’t miss out on this amazing piece of clothing. Make these cool pants a part of your wardrobe and be ready to rock the world in style. ❤ ❤ 🙂
