Culottes are having a moment right now. Like a big moment. And because they feel so French and fancy free, I am in love. I love wearing them with sneakers and pretending I live in Paris where I can roam the cobblestone streets with a baguette in my hand and un coup de champagne in the other. Alas, that is not my reality (schlepping to swimming lessons and hustling to tutoring is more the truth), but I still can “look” French. So Culottes are my new favorite pant.
The pants that I own are from Rachel Comey. Not cheap, but a good investment, and a pair that I keep on wearing. I can’t seem to get enough of them. I love this article on them — with incredible pictures of women rocking the look, and a good description of the love-hate people have for them. And to see the best culottes for spring, go here. And you can even dress them up and wear heels, like Olivia Palermo did. You will love them. I certainly do.
