If you are in search of something special and cool, then I am here to share with you best culottes to wear this spring-summer 2018 season. These are real sexy pants for hot weather wear. If you want your self a modern, somewhat funny and daring look, then you MUST try them on. That’s most chaotic piece ever made in the fashion world. They are not jeans, not shorts, skirt or pants…they are CULOTTES. Not too short, not too long, but wide. This style was really hot back in the 1960’s, 1970’s. The name of these bottoms comes from the French, meaning knickers. Well, they look structured, quite polished and architectural to me. Who would possibly wear them? I think it can be a business woman, smart lady, who likes to try new things.
I wouldn’t say they look sexy, but they do look impressive and sophisticated. Today’s fashion world offers thousands of cuts, colors and styles. My personal fabric to choose from is the silk and denim, it allows you to define your sexy silhouette. Next great thing about these bottoms is the very easy and luxe look that allows you to experiment with your tops and cover-ups. They can be Italian inspired (capri white look updated with sandals and striped top- kind of naval look), or you can go for Sicilian by wearing black culottes with floral or lace bustier top, my personal favorite is the French look that includes culottes with side pockets and slim tiny sweater.
Keep it cool and fun. Go for pale blue elongated version or dark green leather styles.

Go for a blush colored suit! In love with proportions and overall style.

Next question would be: how to wear culottes in real life? Is there a chance to wear them in your everyday life? The first second might be like: Fuck! It’s tricky to style them with your tops, right? Well, nothing is impossible. It’s all about proportion and finding the right pair of your bottoms. Culottes go best with a more slim cut, cropped top. I personally love the ones which come with a high waist and well defined side pockets. Just imagine yourself wearing slim-fit shirts tucked in tiny sweaters and blouses.
Keep it elegant by wearing a long coat styled with black turtleneck and white culottes.

Keep in mind one thing- balanced silhouette. Speaking of jackets, then keep them cropped or waist-line long. Those of you who want to try on more funky and sophisticated looks, then I recommend to try on boxy and oversized tops. Speaking of shoes, then I advice you to try heels, they for sure will make culottes look smarter and office appropriate. If you want to try a French style, then go for flat shoes, oxfords or brogues. Play with your shape and make them look sophisticated.
