Culottes: Friend or Foe?

Culottes, also known as Gaucho pants, or wide leg trousers, are making a serious comeback this year, at least on the runway.  But the question is: can regular women wear this trend without looking frumpy and dumpy?  The jury is still out…but it would be a fun trend to experiment with.

The key to styling culottes is to show some skin above the belt.  A pretty top which accentuates the shoulders and arms will help offset the straightness of the culottes.
