Culottes-645-1

From bonafide WTF trend to full-blown It-girl (and every-girl) ugly-pretty style staple, the culotte isn鈥檛 going anywhere, anytime soon. By now, you鈥檝e probably taken the plunge and given the chic separate a try, and you may even count culottes as a part of your wardrobe鈥檚 inner circle. That said, outfit fatigue is real, and if you鈥檝e been feeling less than enthused about your most-coveted culottes as of late, some serious style inspiration is definitely in order. This week鈥檚 edition of Style Resolutions has you covered, with hot-right-now pieces like robe-style jackets, metallic shoes and minimalist jewelry in three effortless outfits to help renew your love for culottes.

HOW TO STYLE CULOTTES FOR WORK

Culottes-645-3

Redefine the stuffy suit by putting colorful culottes front row center in your nine-to-five rotation. The unexpected bottom sets the tone for the rest of your getup, making non-traditional pieces, like a robe jacket 鈥 a lazy girl鈥檚 workweek dream 鈥 feel totally on-the-job appropriate. While a classic collared shirt would feel right at home here, we say go there with a clean-cut crop top that layers neatly over a high waistline. Shoes that read #girlboss (an office essential) come in the form of lace-up, pointed-toe pumps, while understated-yet-impactful jewelry with architectural appeal delivers a dose of elegant, don鈥檛-mess attitude.

HOW TO STYLE CULOTTES FOR A NIGHT OUT

For an after-hours outfit that straight-up slays, skip the flirty frock or A-line skirt. Whether you鈥檙e gallery hopping or swapping gossip with your girls over a glass of wine, culottes for the win every time. An embroidered crop top brings the obligatory sass-factor to the front-row-worthy ensemble, while snake-effect boots offer an exotic (and practical) alternative to your favorite stilettos. You鈥檙e not party ready without a pop of vibrant color, and that鈥檚 where fiery crystal danglers and punchy pink nail polish come in. Stash your going-out goods in a luxe color block clutch, and drape a stunning suede jacket around your shoulders for a sophisticated finish.

HOW TO STYLE CULOTTES FOR THE WEEKEND

Break away from your tee-and-jeans routine by rockin鈥 a pair of culottes when the weekend rolls around. A preppy sweater with a 鈥70s edge steps in for a classic t-shirt, with a silk scarf knotted just so above the collar (a little French-girl style is always a welcome addition). And since this look is all about elevated casual, metallic pointed-toe trainers are an undisputed must. They鈥檙e the game-changing detail that grounds the getup in laid-back territory, while still managing to push the envelope. Toss on a fringe-flecked jacket and a totally chic backpack before you head out the door. Prepare to turn some heads.
