I use to wear culottes as a child, as an adult I thought of them being fairly awkward trousers. I’m tall and I subconsciously felt like wearing culottes was just wearing trousers too short. But for Spring/Summer 2017 I’m going to embrace the awkward length, is it a skirt or is it a trouser trend.
I’ve dipped my toe into the culotte universe with a little slinky number from Topshop – the textured wide leg trousers are of a crepe material with an elasticated waistband as the description on the Topshop website says for ‘optimal comfort’. Although it feels like I’m shopping at Damart for these culottes, I assure you, it is Topshop.

The weather in the UK may be still a little to on the chilly side for the culotte to completely take over your wardrobe but I’m feeling it, they’re extremely versatile.
