The Culottes Trend

Borrowed from the boys culottes outfit

The culottes trend, just like any other trend, is something we’ve seen make a comeback through the years. Apparently they first became popular in the 1500’s and then again in the Victorian era. Well, all I know is that I owned a pair of almost identical culottes back in my sophomore year of high school. Surely no one thought they were cute and much less fashionable but I rocked those culottes down those hallways like I was walking on my own runway!

So what in the world are culottes? They hang and look like a skirt but are in fact pants! I personally love them and think they are a must have for fall. I scored these Banana Republic Monogram Collection ones on SUPER sale over the weekend (I also love these). And if I’m being completely honest with you, I wanted to wear them with black suede booties, a grey loose fit turtle neck and a structured Mango bag. But I didn’t think I was ready for those weird stares from people walking past me while I stood pretty shooting my uber cozy ootd in the 95 degree scorching heat!
