Trend or Trash? Culotte Jeans //

Dear Readers,

Denim has been at the forefront of the Spring/Summer trends throughout this year, and it doesn't look as if that is changing any time soon in readiness for Autumn/Winter.

The denim culotte burst on to the scene in the early months of this year and has been worn in so many ways by different famous faces, from boho-queen Vanessa Hudgens to Leandra Medine of Man Repeller.

Trend or Trash? TREND

Denim culottes are a flirty take on a regular jean, with the movement of a long skirt and the practicality of a trouser. I definitely think denim culottes are Trend rather than Trash, but it is a style which needs to be catered to your figure. 

Shorter women should opt for a simple culotte style that doesn't affect the hem too much. This will stop the piece from cutting off the leg and making you appear shorter. Also heels are a must when possible, as it will further elongate the leg and create the illusion of height.

Taller women should opt for styles which play with the hem and draw attention toward the feet. Horizontal dye effects can help to shorten the leg too if you are aiming to look more petite. Loafers and slides are the perfect footwear addition to this look.

 Style a darker denim culotte with a pastel t-shirt to break up the heaviness of the look.

Hems have become all the rage with regular denim in recent months, so why not experiment with statement hem culottes.
