I LOVE culottes and have been waiting for this trend to resurface. Culottes were my favourite thing as a child in the 70’s and I had several pairs. The shorter palazzo pants of the 90’s and gaucho styles of the early 00’s were culotte-inspired, but not quite the real deal. At last, we have the real deal. 

I prefer culottes that look more like skirts than trousers. It’s only when you stride that people realize that you’re actually wearing pants. I adore the styles below because the box pleated design is genius, perfectly marrying the skirt and trouser integrity of this silhouette. I also adore the length, although shorter versions are very sweet too.

My eyes are peeled for culottes, which I expect will stay very fringe. Have you ever worn culottes, and do you think that you would wear them again?
