The Culotte

Culottes have never been out of fashion but, since the 80’s, they’ve not been particularly in fashion either. However, just like slip-on trainers and sweatshirts, we don’t see this practical short/skirt/trouser going away anytime soon. Time to welcome a new wardrobe icon: The Culottes.


  • For those under 5.5ft, wear with a heel or you’ll be swamped.
  • A plain style will last you much longer than a patterned pair.
  • Always wear with a tucked-in top or you’ll look like you have no waist.
  • In winter, wear with a short shoe-boot that reveals your ankle.
