Craving Culottes

Parentalstyle has a New Year resolution and that is to commit to wearing the culotte. Oh and I must stop eating family size bars of chocolate (note to self). The new bottom option for your wardrobe has been seen from the big guns on the catwalk and now as always can be found in many high-street retailers.

A quick history lesson into the trouser meets skirt garment: Culottes is a word that originated in the French language. Historically, “culottes” referred to the knee-breeches commonly worn by gentlemen of the European upper-classes from the late Middle Ages or the Renaissance through the early nineteenth century. 

I have already purchased two pairs of culottes and was lucky enough to adopt the fashion trend a couple of months ago from the DVF sale. I went for a classic black pair and then a more fashion forward emerald green. Looks great with knee-high boots, ankle boots and heels of all heights. Also looking forward to wearing with sun kissed legs and sandals as soon as the British weather will allow.

To help convince you I have sourced some great options and inspiration images to encourage a genuine craving for culottes too. Go on, give them chance.
