This spring/summer season is all about loose cropped trousers, a.k.a culottes.

The short-trouser hybrids have a great feminist backstory, having become popular in Victorian England for allowing daring ladies to secretly wear shorts while it looked like they were wearing skirts. The humble culottes, or ‘divided skirts’, were trousers in disguise that let these women ride horses and play tennis without flashing their knickers.

We know they can be tricky to wear so we styled outfits for every day of the week (plus a saturday night bonus) to demonstrate that culottes are a versatile thing of wonder that can actually be extremely flattering. Whether you are wearing them at work (yes, that’s possible), on a night out or out for brunch on the weekend, discover how to rock the trend.
