Styling Culottes for the Summer

Although I wear culottes all year round whether in the form of a tailored work pant, a dressier material, or denim, one of my favorite times to style them is in the summer. The key to styling culottes for the warmer months is to find a pair with a light, breathable material like cotton, linen, or a synthetic blend that will keep moisture out. What I love most about them is that a casual pair can be easily dressed up to create a polished summer look that’s still practical.

For tops, pairing culottes with either a bodysuit or crop top is one of the easiest ways to avoid the fuss of tucking in a blouse or tee, and worrying about excess fabric when it is hot out. I personally love bodysuits as I’m partial to tucked-in look, but crop tops work as well.

My blue and white floral culottes are actually a purchase from last August which I never had a chance to wear before the season’s end, so I am excited to start wearing them this summer! Below, I have linked this year’s version from H&M, along with all my outfit details including this bodysuit from Banana Republic which I absolutely love for the summer, as it is light, stretchy, and comes in a few different colors.

Outfit Details: H&M Wide Cut Pants (this year’s version), Banana Republic Bodysuit, White Espadrille Sandals (similar here), Round Rattan Bag, Banana Republic Satya Sunglasses (this year’s version)

    Nice outfit! Although culottes are not flattering for my own body, I think they look good on you.
