Culottes – Spring Summer 2015 Fashion Trend | How to Wear Them + Shopping!


2014 had maxi dresses, which got shorter this year to make way for midi-skirts and midi-dresses. Similarly, last year had palazzo pants, which got cropped this year too, to make culottes the hottest style to wear right now! Oh, also last year’s long tops made way for cropped tops this year. So basically everything got shorter!

And we want to make them 2015’s staple pants. Or 2015’s alternative to palazzo pants. So comfortable, airy and hot! Culottes come in many different styles and fabrics – printed or solid, leather or denim, chiffon or cotton, skirt-like or pants-like, knee-length or just-above-the-ankles. They are without a doubt this season’s must-have. What’s more, culotte shorts are in vogue too!

How to Wear Them:

1. Leather Culottes:

Leather culottes are very, very in right now. Wear them with buttoned shirts in light summery colors. (Psst. Check out this article of mine on 2015 Spring Summer’s Hottest Fashion Colors). Add shoes to match the leather. And a micro-bag!


2. With Crop Tops:

Combine your culottes with the season’s other hot trends like crop tops. They look super chic paired with culottes. If your culottes are printed or multi-colored textured, choose one of the colors from that for your cropped top. Choose a fabric that either completely contrasts the culottes fabric or is the same, not clashing. Such as chiffon top with crepe culottes will look nice. Cotton top with khaki culottes, and so on.

3. With Belts:

Choose a wide belt in a contrasting color to make the outfit look well put together. If confused, choose a belt in the same color family as your culottes. Such as mocha belt with a beige pair of culottes.


4. Monochrome:

This is my favorite way to wear culottes. I would choose light summer colors like white or sky blue, my favorite this season! Or mint-green. And pair it with accessories in the same color but slightly darker shades. Or pair it with layered chain necklaces. Monochromatic outfits will make you look taller and are easy to pull off.

5. Long Silhouettes:

If you have a pear shaped body or if you worry culottes will make you look fat, try a long jacket in light summery fabrics like cotton or chiffon. It will hide the extra dimensions.


6. With Wedges:

If you’re petite, wear the culottes with wedges or peep-toes because cropped pants tends make one look shorter. Try a fun color like apple green or hydrangea.


7. With Espadrilles:

If you’re tall, try espadrilles with your culottes, yet another super trendy accessory for this season. Try the chic ones with pop prints or glitters! (Check out this article with the trendiest shoe styles of this season!!)


8. With Cropped Peplums:

Another thing to pair with culottes is a cropped peplum top. This season, the peplum is shorter, falling at or just below your navel.
