Culottes are one of my favourite ways to transition my wardrobe to spring. They are the perfect piece to start showing a little bit of skin on those warmer spring days, but are still long enough to keep you covered because lets face it it's not that hot yet (even though we would all like it to be summer already).
I used to think as a petite girl it was impossible for me to pull off culottes and have them look good on my body. I had tried on a few pairs and it just felt like they hung off my body in all the wrong ways- super unflattering.
I'd like to tell you that I was wrong, as a petite girl you can wear culottes, you just have to follow a few simple tricks:
- Try buying them from the petite section of the store so that the proportions fit you better.
- The hemline should hit just below the knee on petite girls- keep that in mind as you may need to alter the hemline.
- Heels are a must - block heels look great with culottes.
- Balance the volume on top with a tighter fitted blouse.
