Some trends are just cool outfit additions, but not culottes. In our minds, culottes are outfit game changers. They've cropped up before, but if you didn't take notice, you'll want to this time around. Here's why: unlike our skinnies, they're breezy and comfortable (and don't cut off any circulation); they also transition easily day to night, work to weekend, and Summer to Fall, making them one of the most functional fashion trends on the market.
If the shape scares you, take a breath — and check out fashion blogger Danielle Bernstein here for all the reassurance you need that you can totally pull them off. Just keep your proportions in check — show off your waist with a blouse tucked in at the office or a fitted tank on weekends, and add a little height with a wedge or heel to elongate the leg. We promise, by the week's end, your favorite skinny jeans will be old news.
