It's Prime Time to Invest in Chic Culottes — Here's Why

Shorts come in all sizes and shapes, but the culottes craze has us especially smitten. Spotted first on the streets of Paris Fashion Week — and on the runways of Etro, Marni, and Rag & Bone — this effortlessly chic silhouette is perfect for just about any occasion. And with Summer almost here, we think they're the coolest way to let your legs breathe. Here's how to work it:

  • For a bold take on culottes, pick a printed and/or colorful style. For a subtle approach, go for a solid in a dark hue.
  • We love the idea of pairing a silk-patterned rendition with a loose tank and low-heeled sandals for daytime.
  • When it's time for work, go for a more structured shape, then throw on a button-down and a blazer for further polish.
  • To rock your culottes for nighttime, just add a leather or sequined tank and the highest of heels.
