Culottes have been around for a long time and many of us probably haven't worn them in years, like myself. This Spring they made a total comeback in a huge way. Designers have reinvented this trend from making them out of leather (these Adam Lippes Leather Culottes) to mesh (these Paul & Joe Mesh Culottes). But how can a real everyday woman wear this look?
How to Wear the Look:
Shirt: Tibi | Pants: H&M | Shoes: Dolce Vita | Bag: Coach | Sunglasses: Glow Accessories

Make this look work for the office by counter acting the wide leg with a more form fitting top. If you do a looser top make sure that it can tuck into your pants so that it can extenuate your hips, or find a top that cuts off right at the waist line. Crop tops are also perfect for a high waist culotte. This look is perfect for brunch. Pair your culottes with a pair of heels to elongate your legs.
Reasons to Love this Trend:
Culottes aren't only in for this season but for the Fall 2014 as well. These make the perfect transitional piece, they can be worn during those warmer fall days with a pair of booties and a sweater or on a more coolish day- with a coat (as seen in Derek Lam's Pre-Fall 2014 collection).
Are you rocking the culottes this summer?
