How to Style Culottes Pants the French Chic Way

How to Style Culottes Pants the French Chic Way

Happy first day of SUMMER! The long summer nights, unplanned road trips and countless glasses of chilled rosé are finally here!

In one of my last posts I mentioned that I prefer wearing natural fabrics like cotton, linen or silk in the summer heat. They’re just more breathable than synthetic fabrics and softer on your skin.

Culottes or wide-leg pants, are one of my favorite summer staples. They’re super comfy and make a chic statement on their own. They can be tricky to style if you add too many layers. All you need is keep the rest of your outfit simple with a solid or graphic tee.

What I love most about culottes pants is the versatility. You can style them for an easy casual summer day look with a white tank top and sandals; to the office with a blouse and strappy heels or to a party with a bralette under a blazer and high heels. Culottes look so chic with heels since they’re so baggy!

I scored this grey striped linen culottes from the Who What Wear collection at Target. Love the high-waist fit and how it feels like wearing a skirt, except they’re pants! Since the culottes have stripes, I styled it with a simple white cami (my latest obsession) from H&M and dressed it up with slingback d’Orsay pumps. Just add a Panama hat to get that chic easy summer look!

You can also see how I styled navy blue striped culottes last summer with a white ruffled off the shoulder top and learn all about the history of culottes.

Do you have any fun plans this summer? I’ll be going to Colorado with my family at the end of July to visit my brother who just had a baby girl! We’re spending a few days in Denver and the rest of our vacation in a resort in Colorado Springs. Can’t wait to discover this new part of the country and spend time with my brother and his adorable family!

Hope you enjoyed this post.

As always, thanks for reading!

A bientôt ♥

  1. Well, this look is super cute, I love culottes, but don’t have a stripy pair! Might have to address that. Thanks for sharing on the #chicandstylish #linkup xx Jacqui Mummabstylish
