8 Outfit Combos You Can Wear with Your Culottes Style tips right this way, ladies!

Culottes, gauchos, wide-leg trousers—however you want to call them—will never go out of style. Especially this summer, as the temperature rises, the weather demands for a more practical and comfortable pair of bottoms. When your pants feel too restricting that you're in dire need of a skirt or dress alternative, opting for comfy yet stylish culottes is the answer. Do keep in mind that they can be a little tricky to wear, though: to help you, here are nine ways you can style your favorite lounge pants.

1. Boots

Wearing culottes can easily make you look stacked. Avoid this by wearing a pair of gauchos that fall right above your ankles. Slip on a pair of heeled boots in a similar hue to give you an instant height boost. Take note that there should be a sliver of skin showing between your bottoms and shoes to break the ensemble.

3. Denim + Heeled Shoes

Denim culottes are heaven-sent. They're comfortable and great for casual gatherings. But if you need to spruce it up a bit, consider slipping on a pair of block heels teamed with your favorite dressy top.


4. Monochrome

Culottes that come in a bright color will make your mornings easier. Monochrome dressing is still en vogue, after all! Just be sure to incorporate some texture into your ensemble to give it a little depth.


5. Power Suit

Make your days in the office more comfortable, especially in the summer. Replace your straight-cut trousers with a pair of high-waisted gauchos to reinvent your work uniform.

6. LBD Replacement

Swap your bodycon and mini dresses for a more practical attire. A playsuit offers both style and comfort to get you through the night.
