15 Must-Have Culottes

By Morgan Modica
Culottes // Summer Trends

Culottes are back, people.

They’ve actually been back for quite awhile now, and I could not be more pleased. Who doesn’t love a good pair of pants that feels as fashion-y and pulled together as a skirt? Culottes first made their debut in fashion during the reign of King Henry III of France in the early 1500s, and ever since, whoever is brave enough to wear them makes quite a fashion statement! I personally love them for the fact that they give the flowing lines of a skirt without any of the usual restrictions in movement and ease. Like everything trendy, culottes will no doubt soon return to a distant fashion memory, but for now, I’m relishing this moment of their stylish comeback as the new “It” garment.
