Culottes made a comeback during the resort 2013 season with Céline, Acne, and Louis Vuitton featuring the voluminous calf-skimming trousers. They may appear to be a tricky piece that should remain on the runways, but the airy cropped pants are a surprisingly flattering and versatile piece when styled correctly. The easiest way to wear them is to throw on a simple tee and add a heel, but why not take a cue from this stylish show attendee and play with color and pattern? Begin with a graphic silk blouse and keep the top few buttons undone. Then, instead of tucking it, knot the shirt at the hips to keep the silhouette slim. Swap a more predictable neutral pump for a jewel-tone sandal that contrasts with the printed top, and then dress it up even more with your favorite jewels. Finish it off with a bright day clutch and you have an easy, polished casual Friday outfit that will transition nicely as the weather gets cooler.
