set-fall-winter-2015-clothing-campaign08

Culottes are any garment which looks and hangs like a calf length skirt (not to be confused with palazzo pants which flow down to the foot), but is split down the middle and actually pants. Back in the Victorian times, these long wide legged pants were made so women could everyday things such as horseback riding, gardening, riding bikes, etc without the inconvenience and limitations of an actual skirt. Culottes have definitely made a comeback as does everything. A vintage look with a modern twist.

These pants are practical for just about anything as they give the illusion of a skirt yet the flexibility of a pant. Check out some looks below:
