Skinny jeans, we love you, but sometimes, we just need a little more leg room. Enter: the culotte. The lovechild of the cutoff and the maxi skirt, culottes are a summer must (I mean, sweaty thighs need a reprieve too!).
Though culottes have become more on trend in the past few seasons, some women are still hesitant to try the mid-length look. Perhaps you hate their boxy appearance? Try a high waisted pair that are form-fitting at the top (pro tip: a tie-waist is always flattering). Not only that, these breezy pants exude a chic effortlessness, whether you are wearing them to work or out on the town — it's literally a no-brainer foundation for a wear-everywhere ensemble.
Ahead, our top summer culotte picks for wherever the season takes you.
