Game Changing Culottes

Sustainable Styling How to rock a culotte

Culottes seem to have been sitting at the back of the pack until recently. Now at the front, they are turning heads and the fashion world on its head!

Let’s count the ways why they have stolen our sweet little hearts. 

1. It begins with comfort! Their comfort factor is next to none! Imagine wearing a cross between your favourite floaty skirt and track pants, that's how amazing culottes are to wear. 

2. Culottes are like no other pants. You don't need to compromise comfort for style. They are a two for one deal. For those busy days where you don't have time to make an effort but you still want to look stylish the culotte is your #bff.

3. Now can we talk about how the culotte "opens new doors" for colours and patterns you may not have explored before. The wide-legged cut and loose structure of the culotte allows patterns and colours to be the hero.

4. Smart or casual, they can be up styled with a fancy heel and down played with a comfy sneaker or slide. 

To me they are the perfect example of elegance and taste that is synonymous with Coco Chanel. After all she introduced the wide legged pant to women in the 1920s.

if i haven't converted you yet that's cool. You may have had a bad experience in the past or you haven't quite found your perfect match. Now is actually the best time to find your ideal pair as there so many hybrids of the wide legged pant flooding the stores atm. A personal shopping tour will ensure you choose the right pair the first time.

Don't let a bad purchase crush your dreams of wearing a culotte. Apart from the gold pair of culottes I'm wearing in the gallery below, all the other ones have been made my dressmaker. if this is an avenue you would like to go down, I can also help you with that, just get in touch .
