Culottes are officially back. We told you they were all over the Spring 2015 runways and now the celeb set can’t stop showing off the look! Don’t think you can look cool in culottes? Take a stylish tip from Gigi Hadid, 20, who perfected her fabulous model-off-duty style while at the Monaco Grand Prix on May 24 in chic separates which included — you guessed it — culottes!
Gigi Hadid’s Culottes — Tips For How To Wear The Spring 2015 Trend:
If you’re still feeling weary about embracing the wide-leg trend, it’s time to get on board. Take a cue from Gigi and balance out the wide leg with a crop top. If you’re tall and slender, pair the culotte with a boxy crop top. If you have a small waist, show it off in a pair of high-waisted culottes and a form-fitting cropped shirt — a halter top like Gigi’s would do wonders for this look. If the crop top trend isn’t for you, you can also tuck a thin tee into culottes, keeping it simple and chic.
While Gigi and her modeling BFF, Kendall Jenner, can pair their culottes with sneakers and flat sandals and still look so chic, if you’re on the petite side you can definitely benefit from adding a little height to your look. Opt for a dainty ankle-strap sandal in pointy pump to balance out the wide-leg silhouette and elongate your leg — a pointy nude pump or ankle-strap sandal is a fool-proof way to rock the look. Be sure to play with proportions and you can easily pull off the trend in an effortless way.
Once you have your look down, it’s time to show it off. Culottes are just as dressy as a dress or a pair of separates, so don’t be shy — whether you’re heading out to dinner or going out with your gal pals, there’s so many places to show off the trend.
