My impression of the culotte is that it was put into the history books never to be brought out again. The rule of 'wore them the first time' is ever present in my mind with fashion right now.
But they can be worn so very well on the catwalk/model/actress/prof fash blogger
And then on a 'real' woman
Let me bring to you where to buy the culotte on the high street/online today. Looks like culottes (in my opinion) look best with a small heel instead of flat birk style sandals and the top part can be anything. Dress us as Frances has on the left image above or dress down with a jumper as per the Gucci image from Pinterest.
1 - Asos green culottes - £25
2 - Asos coral culottes - NOW £18 (was £35) all sizes still available
3 - Asos grey culottes - £35
1 - Boohoo floral culottes - £25
2 - Boohoo animal print - £20
3 - Boohoo pleated white culottes - £20 (IGNORE THE CROPPED LEATHER TOP)
For a classic navy pair try Whistles navy culottes - £125 (too pricey for me)!
Oh and here I was this morning running around like a blue arsed fly dithering about what to wear. Legs are patchy from crap false tan and hairy because I am a lazy cow. I put the outfit on and felt so mumsy so I simply added a belt and tucked the top in - makes all the difference don't you think?
Culottes are certainly a 'trend' I'm thinking about and by the time I make my decision they will be well and truly old fashioned, I am like that you see!
