These Culottes Will Be Your New Spring Staple

Have you searched your soul and decided that yes, culottes are indeed for you? If so, let us recommend a pair that’s a gentle introduction to the trend. Forgo the standard swishy black style in favor of a pin-striped pair that resembles classic (albeit cropped and wide) suit trousers. The vertical stripes help give the illusion of length —  a plus if you’re on the short side. Treat them like a midiskirt and tailor to mid-calf if they run long. Tuck in a white tank or shirt and add stacked-heel sandals to complete the look.
