People don’t really know where the culotte pants come from. However, they might originate from Gaucho pants, classic trousers, and long tailored shorts. In the majority of the cases the pants are ankle length and they come with a long structure. In fact we can say that they are a strange blend of skirts and pants; we can also say that they look like a skirt split in two.

Although there are different kinds of culotte styles, the truth is that they are quite difficult to differentiate. For starters, there are those that really look like a skirt. These can often be seen worn by celebrities and they come under the knee. You can recognize them by the strong Gaucho influence. For classic pieces of this style you should take a look at the pieces created by Givenchy for the next season. The real culotte pants should be of ankle length.

The majority of the women are afraid of this style because it is difficult to make it look cool. For a trendy twist you should think about the style of Ada Kokosar and Rita Ora who have been wearing the leather version of the pants, which resemble the leather jogging pants. This style has some of the characteristics of the 90’s trends.

No matter how difficult you think it is to pull off the style, you can be sure that you can do it too. It is common for women to pair the pants with crop tops. We may consider this an automatic option since usually the pants are slightly raised over the waist. This means that there is no way for you to go wrong with the cropped tops.

Another possibility that you have to mixing and matching is a tank top or a blouse that should be tucked in. The main point of these pants is not to hide the silhouette with a long cardigan or a tunic. The pants are structured in a way that is just begging to be showed off. Since they come with higher waists, they elongate the silhouette, making women look slimmer.

The most obvious choice for shoes would be high heeled pumps and sandals because the pants look like the cropped pants. The best thing about the pants is that you can wear them to just any occasion, including to the office.
