Victoria Beckham was one of the honored guests at the Vogue dinner held at the Balthazar restaurant in London on Sunday. Although the slouchy turtleneck vest she wore as a topper was a bit kooky, we didn’t think much else about her outfit because it essentially looked like she was just wearing a plain white shirt with a basic pencil skirt.

That is, until we saw pictures of Victoria Beckham from different angles. That’s definitely not a plain old pencil skirt she’s wearing, but genuine, bonafide, can’t-mistake-them-for-anything-else culottes.

VB actually debuted these very same culottes at her spring 2014 presentation and even sent a few in varying lengths down the runway. The verdict? Fashion critics, commentators, and authorities love them, calling them one of the top highlights of the entire collection.

Culottes, gauchos, pantskirts — however you call them, it seems like they’re going to be a big trend next summer! The question is, are you ready for them to come back?

If you are, don’t just go digging for your old pairs from the ’90s just yet. 2013 culottes have a sharper, edgier, and more streamlined look, as evidenced by the modern pairs we’ve selected below.
