Culottes are a great, versatile piece to add to your wardrobe. They make a statement and can really mix up your wardrobe if you usually only wear skinny leg pants. The best way to style culottes is with a cropped fitted shirt, or a shirt tucked in. We love culottes worn slightly high waisted. This will bring balance to your outfit and accentuate the wider silhouette of the pants while keeping your figure not too boxy. Another great styling choice for winter is to tuck in an oversized knit jumper to break up the look, stay cosy and maintain your silhouette!

The Basic Culotte

This is a great basic starting point if you’re trying out culottes for the first time. These chic and simple pants can be styled up or down. The linen blend pant has a paper bag waist so that you can cinch the culottes in at your waist as much as you want.

Try it with a lighter coloured, cropped shirt and matching heels for a work appropriate look. Or be even bolder and mix it with a bold print top and heeled sandals or boots.

The Print Culotte

These print culottes come in a few different colour palettes and styles. Striped or check culottes give your pants collection some extra oomph.

They’re perfect for autumn/winter paired with a tucked in knitted jumper. Culottes can occasionally look unflattering and make you look shorter or wider, so make sure to balance out the wide leg of the pant with a flattering, slimline top that’s cropped or tucked in.

Then put on some heeled boots and you’re ready to go, effortlessly fashionable for winter.

The Utility Culotte

Add a bit of hardware and tough elements to your look with the utility-style culottes. These come in a high waist, with large front tie fabric and silver eyelet details in the front to bring attention to the waist.

For the top add a simple, light slogan tee for a casual vibe or a more structured blouse if you’re dressing it up. Complete the look with some silver jewellery and strappy shoes that elongate your legs.
