The culottes, or the long Bermuda shorts are one of those micro trends that went on to join the league of the major ones. Deemed as one of the “ugly” fashion trends around just like dad sneakers, this is one trend that has broken all expectations and garnered such a following which explains why you’ve started seeing them all around. It also helps when Bottega Veneta and Celine have produced their own versions of the trend, and it’s undoubtedly sticking around since it was spotted on the Spring 2020 runways of Givenchy and Saint Laurent among others. How can you style the look? Scroll below for a dose of style inspiration.
You can pair the pants or culottes with mock-croc knee high boots or even over-the-knee boots, and you can complete the look with a turtleneck and blazers à la Celine.
Bottega Veneta’s take on the trend didn’t shy away from leather on leather outfits paired with simple pumps.
Again at Bottega Veneta the leather culottes were also paired with a bright mock-neck sweater, their famous statement belt, and mules…of course should the weather permit.
On the Spring/Summer 2020 runways Celine took it up a notch with a look that can be easily copied now with denim culottes, a romantic shirt and a cardigan.
You can easily dress the culottes down if you add chunky flat boots, and you play around with fabrics and prints.
Another look that borders on the casual dressy side is the pairing of culottes with blazers belted or just simply worn on their own.
You can add a cosy sweater for a chic look that’s perfect for a brunch or lunch.
You can take your suit to the next level by opting for a culottes suit instead of skirt or shorts.
Keep it casual with a white tee and slides, perhaps you can save this for the warmer months since this is a trend that will stay.
Should you want to go ahead and cut out one of your wide jeans to a bermuda, feel free to add a graphic tee and blazers for a cool-about-town vibe.
You can go all out with striking boots and a tie-dye t-shirt to finish off your look.
