I don't understand why women hate culottes. It seems to me to be another thing people hate because of the decade it's from rather than because of the look and functionality of the clothing. I have big thighs. Chances are very good that many of you have big thighs. When I wear normal shorts, they creep up and transform into short-shorts. Not cool. Not comfortable. While I adore dresses and skirts, they're not always the best thing for summer roller coasters and playing on the swings. Pants, meanwhile, are too warm for the season. Behold! There's a short that is cut loose like a skirt! Why are you booing?
There's no denying some of them are a bit momish with elastic waistbands and a walking-short cut. Others scream private school casual. But I love the loose, is-it-a-skirt version. What say you?
Culottes pictured are available in black or pink at ASOS.
