Last year’s culottes trend is more popular than ever. So if you haven’t tried it already, now is the time! If you’re petite like me, or simply want to look taller and leaner, there are a few tips to keep in mind when rocking the trend:
1. Go for a High Waist
Culottes that sit higher at the waist lengthen the body. Since you’re cropped on bottom, it helps to have that extra fabric reaching up to your belly-button.
2. Match Your Top to Your Pants
Monochromatic dressing, aka wearing one color from head-to-toe, always lengthens and slims. Since blush is so big this season, I matched my pleated culottes to a pale pink blouse. Whatever color you choose, just make sure to tuck your top in or go with a crop top that shows just a slip of skin.
3. Lengthen Your Legs With Nude Shoes
Matching your shoes to your skin color is an instant way to make your legs look longer. If you’re on the shorter side, I definitely recommend to at least do a small wedge. For extra height, I went with my go-to platform ankle-strap stilettos.
I hope these tips help you when you’re rocking the culottes trend for spring! If you have any questions on how to wear the latest styles feel free to ask them in the comments below!
