I’m not sure about you, but when culottes first came on the scene I was skeptical. Who else had horrifying flashbacks of the gauchos epidemic in the late 90s? But after I tried on my first pair I was hooked. As the temperatures drop to near freezing most people store their culottes away for winter. This is a BIG MISTAKE! Culottes are one of those pieces that when styled right can be worn year round without sacrificing warmth. So if you’re wondering how to get the most out of your wardrobe, here are 3 easy tricks that you can use if you want to wear culottes in the winter:
- Put Leggings on Underneath. I did in this photo! That’s the beauty of culottes is they’re wide enough that with the right fabric you can get away with another layer underneath for some added warmth.
- Pair them with Over the Knee Boots. Mind blown right? Wearing over the knee boots with your culottes will keep most of your legs warm without sacrificing style.
- Wear Thigh High Socks. It’s a game changer. A good pair of thigh high socks is another sneaky way to add an extra layer of without anyone being the wiser.
With all those extra layers you’ll be nice and warm without sacrificing any style. Plus you get more wear out of your culottes which means more outfit options which means a big bang for your hard earned bucks! Because who doesn’t love having options and finding more ways to wear the pieces you love?
