In case you were wondering if those culottes you bought last season were still relevant, the answer is yes. They’re the perfect piece to wear during these temperamental months, when you can go from shivering to sweating in your thin T-shirt. If you’re looking to make a big splurge, this leather-and-metal pair by Tibi is a definite indulgence. The cool suspended effect at the hem is probably unlike that of any other piece in your closet. Though, if you prefer to go for something a little less pricey, you can also try these Opening Ceremony faux-leather culottes that feature an interesting laser-cut design, or go classic with this navy leather pair.
