Easy, breezy, cruise worthy
Nishka Lulla rendered the culottes flair with an effortlessly cruise vibe. Think icy blue and malleable textures and you want to be transported to a relaxing holiday instantly. This matched-to-the-T bra crop top and culottes look is ideal for hot summer days. For a more conservative look, you can throw that cardigan on instead of tying it on the waist and finish your look with nude court shoes.

Work the monochrome look with ample doses of bohemian inspired prints. One thing to keep in mind while styling culottes is their length. Those that sit below the knee should be avoided if you’re on the shorter side, as they tend to cut your calf in half, making you appear shorter. To work the look, be sure to put on those heels to elongate your frame.

Work wear just got bolder
Odd as it might sound, this look actually works pretty well. These culottes have more of a skirt silhouette and we love how the long length of the jacket and similar hues does the trick to not make these ballooning pants appear too in-your-face. Stick with muted tones such as whites, greys and khakis to keep the look professional.

Ring in some retro
You ought to have a pair of white culottes, which are soon turning out to be a summer essential. We love how festive chic this look is. The chocolate brown top with a mint green print perfectly complements the below the knee pants. The oversized glasses bring in a rocking retro vibe.

Go the colour blocking way by pairing salmon pink culottes with a basic black top/tee. The broad waistband on these pants adds much drama to the look and the soft pleating lends the silhouette a more flowy feel.
