Culottes' keeps on making a comeback year after year and this Spring/Summer season they are back in store. This no fuss trend is great for day or night and works for either short or tall girls. It adds shape to tomboy figures and creates the illusion of a small waist.

Culottes are the same shape as an A-line skirt so proportions are important when wearing them.

If you doing a casual look with flat sandals or pumps then go for a slightly longer style.

Prints are always fun to wear and if you bold enough match the print of your culottes with the same print top and wear it like a one-piece jumpsuit.

Short girls opt for pointed flats which will elongate your leg. Pairing them with stiletto, then choose a pair that is just below your knee creating the illusion of longer legs.

For the Apple shape figure wear your culottes with a crop top, to define and highlight your waist and if you are wearing it to the office go for a longer top or blouse that you can tuck in.
