Culottes are everywhere this summer. They’ve crossed over from tricky trend to mainstream fashion and the high street is awash with them. Day or night, dressed up or down it seems there’s a culotte to suit all (even maternity ones like Bertie’s wearing). We won’t lie, they can be tricky to wear so how do you style them for a flattering take?  We’ve styled a simple pair of black culottes 3 ways – for day, work and night to show you how versatile they really are.

Day Look

Add a stripy t-shirt, slides or trainers and culottes are casual and summery.
