Still stumped on how to wear culottes? Here’s an easy solution: Find a culottes set. When your pants and top perfectly match, it takes the guesswork out of styling. Elizabeth and James’s spin on coordinated clothing features pale-pink culottes with a delicate fringe trim, a subtle detail that makes them feel special. The matching peplum tank has the same embellishment and a subtle keyhole opening in the back — a nice way to reveal skin without being too overexposed. Add coral suede mules and a big gold bracelet and you have a cool, offbeat way of dressing for warm summer nights.
