Cool Culottes

Cool Culottes

I have been eyeing culottes all season. Merriam Webster defines culottes as a “divided skirt”, but it is just a fancy word for wide leg, cropped pants. During the Victorian era, a “split” was added to the skirt to allow women to enjoy activities like horseback riding, gardening, and bike riding. I love that these pants still look fancy and enable me to run and do jumping jacks.

Culottes can be dressed up with heels – I went a little edgy with the cage heels – or dressed down with flat sandals. I can easily transition this bright scarf from summer to fall with a sweater or mock neck top. 

TIP: I would recommend sizing down on these culottes, since they were a tad loose at the waist.
