Janet, you mentioned a few times over the last few days that you can't wear flared culottes with a higher waist because of your body type. May I gently suggest that you can, if the rise isn't too high for your shorter torso. THAT is key.

Think of it this way. You look Killer Stunning in regular length bootcuts and flares - culottes are merely a shorter version of them. You have a naturally long leg line, (hello, Ms. Legs!) - which helps create traditionally flattering proportions right away. So if you DO like the look, please don't give up on it. I know you'd rock the vibe. xo
