With the temperatures rising…so are the hem lines. An easy way to stay on trend this spring, is to introduce a culotte or cropped wide pant into your wardrobe. The key to making this look work in real life, and not just on the pages of a magazine, is to make sure that you can see your waistband. Wear with a tucked in blouse or a crop top to create balance by highlighting the waist.

Stay cool by keeping it cropped! Scroll down for a glimpse of my top picks and click on the photo for more details.

Red Valentino Cropped Cullotte Pants - Navy

This one hits at a nice spot on the leg and wold look equally good with high boots as it does with pumps.

Agathe Pleated Culottes

Love the pale blue and the interesting pleats – it comes in some great other colors too!


The fuller leg has a skirt like feel and can easily be dressed up or down – I’m picturing them with a pair of a pair of white Stan Smiths.

English Factory Essential Culottes - Off White

People are often hesitant to wear white on the bottom (because it’s less forgiving) but these culottes make that a non-issue.
