I’ve had a long distance love affair with culottes for awhile. Always admiring their beauty and inherent chicness, but too afraid to make them mine. Afraid because culottes are one of those pieces that you have to get exactly right or it can be a sartorial disaster. One must consider leg width and length when finding a pair that compliments their body.
The number one concern with culottes is shortening the leg. If you choose a very wide pleated pair I would generally say that high heels should be considered mandatory because the added width will shorten – kind of like a pair of wide leg pants.
