These Culottes From Marimar Are Everything!

culottes
  A trend born as part of a feminist movement in Victorian England; culottes are a staple Spring/Summer wardrobe piece. Perfect for Spring weather when it’s not quite warm enough to dig out those short shorts, culottes are also ideal for Summer weather when you’re in need of some ventilation but need something a little more sophisticated than shorts. Kendall Jenner, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez and Gigi Hadid are amongst some of the culotte wearing elite.

 

How To Own The Look

Our top tip for owning the look is to find the right length and width to suit your body shape and height. Petite frames should avoid culottes that are slightly longer or wider in proportions as they may become drowned in material. Vertically striped culottes will create the illusion of an elongated leg which is perfect for the petite frame. Vertical stripes will also slim down the appearance of anyone with a bottom-heavy frame. While a wider hem on the leg will balance out pear shapes. Master the look with these remarkable vertically striped culottes from Marimar. We’ve put together three looks using this season’s wardrobe staple.  

Chic Culottes

For our first look we’ve styled the trend with this white kimono-sleeved top from Irish brand Luke Lovely, also available from Marimar. The kimono top dresses up the look while still keeping the look chic and comfortable. We suggest balancing the look with a box clutch and a stick heel with a pop of colour.   Marimar

Casual Culottes

We’ve teamed our second look with this grey, graphic print tee and this boxy, short-sleeved chambray shirt. Both available from Marimar. To complete this comfy, casual, but oh so trendy look, team it with some white platform slip on trainers.   marimar  

Classic Culottes

For our final look, we’ve taken a more sophisticated approach to the trend. We’ve paired our Marimar culottes with a tailored blazer over a fine-cotton jumper; an ideal way to make the trend office-friendly. To complete your office look add a pair of heels and a tote bag.    marimar
