Many women give culottes a pass because of various reasons: They can make you look short; you can’t wear flats in them; you can’t find the right length to suit your height – but the fact that culottes are still on the shelves of high street fashion stores like Topshop and Zara proves that they’ve become mainstays in contemporary style.
Not sure how to pull them off? Our tip is to get to know your body first. If you’re pear- or apple-shaped, go for tailored culottes with stronger and more structured fabric. If you’re tall and slender, go for loose-fitting, palazzo-esque culottes. Once you’ve figured that out, buying culottes will be easy-peasy.
