Skip Pants and Wear Culottes with These 5 Styling Ideas!

Culottes are knee-length or over-the-knee-length pants that look like a cross between midi skirts and wide-legged trousers. If you like the silhouette the midi skirt gives but don’t fancy the feminine vibe it injects that much, this should be a wonderful alternative. In addition to that, they also make wonderful alternatives to pants, especially in those scorching days when you can’t stand the full coverage pants bring.
