How to wear culottes in a chic way
How to wear culottes. I have to start this article confessing something to you: a few years ago was not a big fan of culottes. In fact, I loved to see it in other girls but I just didn’t wear it.
However, my opinion changed the day I saw these ones at Zara (maybe in 2015). And since I really liked them, I decided to take them to the dressing room. Why not, I thought? Even with a part of me whispering that it would be a waste of time, I went to try them.
I mean, in fashion as in life, we have to leave the prejudices aside and give an opportunity to pieces that make us step away from the comfort zone. Often our first opinion on something changes dramatically as soon as we try it or know it better, right?
And, as you may have guessed by now, that is precisely what happened with these culottes. I would never have them if I haven’t given them a chance. And guess what? They’re my absolute favorite.

Besides being beautiful and comfortable, they have one of the qualities that I appreciate the most: versatility. So, it is very easy to create different styles of outfits with them. This one I’m wearing is casual chic, but I could totally have created just a chic or casual outfit with them as well.
How to achieve an effortlessly chic look with culottes?
Of course, the most obvious answer is with high heels. But in those busy days where we want to be comfortable, we can totally wear culottes with sneakers and be chic.
The tip to do that well is to match pieces with textures. For example, the shirt I’m wearing has lace details and buttons. Also, the earrings, the necklace, and the hair clip, with pearls, are accessories that add “chicness” to the outfit. And the oversized blazer is the perfect piece to make it all look cooler. Mixing pieces of different styles is a good tip for everyone who wants to create interesting looks in an easy way.
Equally important is the bag. So, choose one that has some different detail, like the metal handle, or a classic model of good quality.
The final look is elegant yet unpretentious and easy to wear. Simple, right?
