CULOTTES ARE NOT ONLY FOR TALL GIRLS
A couple of years ago I was sitting by the window in a cafe and I saw a girl standing in the middle of the street; she was wearing a black bomber jacket and beige culottes. She looked amazing in her red heels and beige culottes. I look at her again and thought for myself: I could never pull off a pair of culottes because I’m too short. Funny enough I thought the same about maxi dresses.
I always had the idea that culottes were only for tall girls and maybe that’s true but with the help of a great pair of heels shorts girls like me can also wear this elegant and fashionable trousers without a problem. Nowadays I even dare to wear culottes with flat sandals.
The secret to looking chic and fabulous in a pair of culottes it’s balance. If you want to look slender and tall in a pair of culottes you should combine them with : a short top and a pair of heels.
Open toe boots and sandals and sleeveless tops are also great pieces to style a chic pair of culottes
