    As a teenager, I distinctly remember my mom (who grew up in the '70s) trying to convince me to wear a pair of vintage culottes. She's always had an inexplicable infatuation with these hybrid pants/shorts/skirts despite the fact that she clocks in at a mere 4'11" and that this style is notoriously difficult to pull off.

    But, as any good mother will tell you, it's all about confidence. With the right attitude — and some expert styling — you can pull off just about anything. And so, as I saw this style walk down the Spring and Resort 2013 runways, my long-repressed desire to own a pair was ignited. So, I've got a few styling suggestions to suit just about anyone looking to add some retro flair to their look this season.
