MYNT NEWS: Culottes are Cool Again
Posted: Aug 26 2014
By now, you’ve surely spotted summer’s hottest trend: culottes. They’ve made appearances on runways from New York to Milan and on celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Victoria Beckham and Rita Ora.
What’s not to love, really? Culottes give the dressy look of a skirt with the ease and comfort of crop pants or shorts, depending on the style. But with fall coming up right around the corner, there’s no need to tuck them away in storage just yet. They’re also the perfect in-between piece to transition from summer to fall.
Here are two ways to style our Cadence Culottes from hot summer days to cooler fall temperatures.
Top off culottes with a fitted blazer like the Alain Blazer and a basic black tight tee or tube top. Pull hair back, then add some bling with doorknocker earrings, an oversized clutch and metallic strappy heels.
Look to the 1970’s for some style inspiration and pair your culottes with a simple, light turtleneck. Add a long statement necklace and modernize the look with wedge booties.
