10 Ways to Wear Culottes

Collages

It’s Monday, y’all.  While I can’t do anything about that little fact, I can provide you with some cool wardrobe inspiration to help get you dressed this week.  Did you know that the culotte is the Lena Dunham of pants?  It was developed during the victorian era so that women could ride horses without having to sit side saddle in their skirts, and was later adopted for activities like bike riding and gardening.  They gave the appearance of a skirt, but were actually still pants, because god forbid any woman look like she was wearing pants.  They’re super chic and versatile, and, lucky for us, on trend this spring some 150 years later. (For more inspirations to help get you dressed this week, see here, here, and here!)
