How: Styling tips as per Body Type
Culottes are a total Summer essential – they are relaxed, trendy and smart. We give you simple tips to wear these bottoms in style according to your body type.
Body Type: If you are tall and petite then wear these bottom with flats. Heels will only make you look taller and skinnier. You may try kitten heels if you are tall and heavy around the hips. If you are short and petite then culottes are a blessing for you. Try them with heels or quirky shoes. If you are short and plump, you may opt for flared bottoms that make you look slimmer.
Styling: Culottes are best paired with a fitted crop top. However, you can experiment with oversized pullovers, classic white shirts, and even long tunics. Carry a clutch or envelope bag for a divalicious look.
