HOW TO WEAR CULOTTES IF YOUR SHORT, TALL, PETITE OR CURVY.
These TRICKY TROUSERS are everywhere and not everyone is wearing them correctly in order to flatter their figure! So I’m here to help out!
Here’s are few 'tricks of the trade' that I can share with you :
1. If you're short and curvy all over, culottes that stop a couple of inches below the knee are going to be the most flattering because they land at the smallest part of your leg. Wear culottes as if they were an A LINE SKIRT. Same rules apply.
2. Choose a lightweight, jersey material for the most comfortable fit and go for a high-wasted pair to best highlight your shape. If your wanting to look taller - look for vertical stripes in the fabric which will instantly create length (where it will be lacking)
3. If you’re short and curvy then be careful not to wear culottes that have pleats or elastic on the waistband and have lots of volume thru the leg. The culottes should sit flatly across you tummy, float beautifully over your thighs and sit at the smallest part of your leg.
4. Shoes are vital to complete this look! Pointy toe pumps that have a slim heel look fabulous with culottes. Very elegant and stylish. Knee high Boots or thick-heeled platform shoes are also possibilities and of course there is the sneaker to give your look an 'effortless' sense of chic casualness!
