There's something really cool and different in culotte pants! Although great for Winter, I find them to be most suitable for warm temperatures and Summer season, as they're super light and flowy. And what does Summer mean besides sun, beach (if near) and high temperatures? Why fiestas and festivals, of course! I don't know what's like at your place but, here in Spain there are tons of both musical-partying and traditional festival taking place in Summertime. Specially in little towns away from huge, crowded and warm cities. Even with my full-time Summer internship at the studio, I've had the chance of wearing my orange culotte pants for the festival taking place downtown, which has been very fun. It's incredible how a Summer away from the city can change anyone's perspective  and focus!

So, as I found culotte pants are a really big deal for Summer and a great opportunity to experiment with new clothing shapes and fabrics, I ought to give you some fashion tips and advice on how to style your culottes for Summer festivals! There we go:


#1 The lighter, the better
Although there's a wide variety in materials and fabrics out there, and of course, there are culottes for Winter made of wool and thicker fabrics, I prefer them to be worn in Summertime in light, flowy fabric! Silk, light cotton or denim... Culottes were made for Summer season! I like how this fashion piece resembles a skirt, but without your legs getting glued to any plastic chair you sit on (which I suffer constantly, what a shame!).

#2 Colorfulness
Culotte pants are that kind of statement piece in anyone's outfit that can make the whole assemble stand out of the crowd, and that's why I find them perfect in bright colors. I like to style my orange culotte pants with black or white plain tops, or cropped tops, but it is also a marvelous idea to wear them by color-blocking different colorful pieces.

#3 From the heights
The shape and length of culotte pants, in addition to me being quite average height (1.67 metres tall, barely a 5'5") makes me looking like a little cinnamon roll if I wear them with flat shoes. Instead, I prefer wearing a pair of wedges (nothing too crazy) or go for high heels if I feel in the mood for them. This way, culotte pants create the illusion of a narrower waist and elongate the figure.

#4 Cut it out
I find bralettes and cropped tops the best friends of culotte pants. They just look so cool and effortless! As I always advise, play with shapes and experiment with different points of view to your look. Take a chance, it may work out!
