Celeb Inspiration: CulottesJanuary 8, 2018
While it’s tempting to live in your favorite pair of jeans (or snowpants, for our friends way up north), cold temperatures don’t mean you can’t still be ultra-fashionable. The pants we’re loving this season are a celeb favorite right now: culottes – aka the “split skirt.”
Perfectly mixing a sort of elegance and high fashion with casual cool, culottes make looking red carpet ready effortless. Draw your inspiration from some of our favorite stars and nail the perfect winter outfit.
Rock it like Rihanna
We’ll be the first to admit that no one can actually rock it like Rihanna, but that doesn’t mean we can’t try. Go monochrome with a cropped sweater, and add a pop with metallic (gold or silver) heels. For extra oomph, add in minimalistic metallic jewelry.
Bundle Like Victoria Beckham
It’s cold outside… and Victoria Beckham knows how to make it work for her. Pair your culottes with a fitted sweater and oversized scarf for a warm city look. Finish with heeled boots and sunglasses.
Blaze it Like Rose Byrne
This look is perfect for your more business-professional days. Simply trade in your black office pants for a pair of black culottes, pair with your favorite blouse, and top off with a sleek black blazer. Pair with your trusty black heels, and you’re ready to go.
Peacoat Like Olivia Palermo
Fashion goddess Olivia Palermo is pretty much always right when it comes to trends. Snag her signature look with a pair of pleated culottes, a snug turtleneck, a (slightly) oversized peacoat and a pair of pumps.
Effortless like Emma Watson
For this look, you probably don’t even need to go shopping (as long as you already have your culottes). Follow Emma’s lead and pair your culottes with a tucked-in button-down shirt and a pair of wedges, for a effortlessly cool (and cute) outfit.
