Let’s do Culottes

Hi Ladies,

Remember culottes? I’m sure if you were born after 1950 you do. Originally culottes were worn in the 1800’s so women could ride horses and or bicycles more easily.  They returned a few more times: in the 1960’s and again in the 1970’s. Sometimes they were referred to as gaucho pants but ultimately they looked the same.

This year, they are back again. Several different styles and lengths.  I recently decided to get a pair. I figured black would be a good color, simple, and easy to pick tops to wear with.

P1030499   I really love this length. You could go longer.                P1030499_3

Culottes – Nicole by Nicole Miller

Black Pumps – Nine West

What updates them is wearing pumps. You are seeing pumps with everything this year including jeans, shorts, and culottes. I am in love with the lower heel D’orsay style.  I  purchased the black Nine West pumps shown months ago but recently purchased this nude color from a Nordstrom Rack (one of my favorite places to shop).

These are Charles by Charles David.

This lower heel is comfortable and goes with everything. The nude color is makes you seem taller. more statuesque.

TIPS:

Heels modernize culottes

Chunky flats pair well too

Softer shape tops with culottes

In doubt, wear black

Until next time  Happy shopping!
