How To Wear Culottes For Every Occasion

how to wear culottes for every occasion

If you've been reading The Daily Luxe for a while, you will know that I wear culottes like most girls wear jeans. Trans: all the freaking time.

Although culottes may have initially been viewed as a big fat fashion fad back in 2015, they have become a modern classic.

Want to wear culottes but aren't exactly sure how? That's where I come in!

So put on your style head and get ready to learn how to wear culottes for every occasion...

**Warning: repeat outfit post offenses are about to come your way**


How To Wear Culottes For The Office

Boots: Boohoo
Bag: Mon Purse

Dear culottes: I have missed you! As soon as I received this cute brown pair from Forcast* my undying love for you has returned. **Culottes where for art thou?**

As I had a business meeting to attend, I dressed up my culottes with a pin stripe blouse and this cape. I arrived at the meeting feeling like some sort of fashion superhero.

The red lips, tassel earrings and boots kept it from looking too overly cooperate. However, if your #girlboss status greatly exceeds mine and heads towards the ranks of Michelle Obama, swap the boots for a slick pair of black, pointed toe heels.

How To Wear Culottes For Summer

Although culottes and Summer may make those sweaty alarm bells in your head ring, culottes are surprisingly airy and cool.

Opt for high waist, loose fitting culottes and team with a cute crop top or bralet.

Add neutral flats and accessories and you're ready for some fun in the sun!

Being bottom heavy can be an absolute paint in the fat arse when it comes to Summer. Teeny tiny shorts, micro skirts and mini dresses are enough to make us want to walk around in a pair of shorts with 'thunder thighs' slapped accross the behind.

Stop. Breathe. Relax. Culottes are the answer!

Wear culottes with a tight fitting or crop top to show off that teeny waist and slim out those pins.

How To Wear Culottes For Lunch/Shopping

Ok... so you can wear culottes like this for far more than lunch or shopping. 

Neutral hues, classic prints and brown heels are fantastic for casual occasion where you want to feel like an absolute queen.

Wear culottes with vertical stripes to elongate the legs.

I wore this quirky 'thrown together' look for fashion week last year. 

My general tip is: if you want to look street-style worthy, throw on stuff together and see if it works!

These Ginger & Smart culottes are so long that they are almost in palazzo pant territory. 

The Adidas sneakers and boho shell bag are about as random as it gets, but due to the monochrome palette, it works.
