The Ten Best Culottes

Listed / 06.26.15

Pants, shorts or a skirt? Refuse to choose in these ten great, breezy pairs of culottes.

Ready for a history lesson? Culottes were originally the knee breeches worn by European upper-middle class gentleman from the late middle ages through the early 19th century. Now here we are in 2015 – sometimes it can take a while for a trend to come back around – with a cool new crop of culottes that pair perfectly with this century. Functioning essentially as a pant/short/skirt hybrid, we love the breezy, extremely retro look. Chances are, you’ve seen this style on various celebrities at red carpet events, and now’s the time for you to look the part of the casual sophisticate in a charming pair of culottes.
