STYLE THIS: Culottes

Ask me to style a pair of Culottes a few years ago and you would’ve got me stumped for sure. 

I would’ve never thought that I’d be caught wearing wide leg 3/4 pants at classy events, but I luckily had a change of heart. Culottes are such a chic design that any one can pull off! They’re a popular choice of bottoms for fashion influencers, so get some inspiration, invest in a good pair of Culottes, shimmy into them and make the world your runway!

Here are two ways that I would style Culottes. Which is your favourite look?

The easiest DIY Cut Off Shorts

It’s fair to say that everyone’s guilty of having old, outdated, so-three-years-ago pants lying around the house. Some don’t have the heart to throw them out, some say that they’ll need them one day. Whatever your excuse, grab those pants right now and grab a pair of scissors, ‘coz you’re about to get down with some serious DIY business.

That’s seriously all you need. Just your pants, scissors, a piece of chalk and that hot bod of yours.

First thing you’ll need to do is shimmy into those pants and figure out how short you want to make your shorts.

With a piece of chalk or a pencil, mark about 2 inches longer than you want your shorts to be.

Now lay your pants down on a flat surface and cut the pants, using your mark as a guide.

Continue onto the next leg by folding the pants in half and using the already cut leg as your guide.

Fold the bottom twice, or you could leave it for a relaxed, frayed look.

All done! Pair your new shorts with a crop top and some flashy jewels from Gold Soul and you’re good to go!
