How do you wear culottes if you are short? Are loose or wide legged pants for the taller ladies only? Not at all! Here are some culottes outfit ideas for petite women who want to wear these comfortable and effortless pants.
Some tips to keep in mind:
Keep your proportion in mind, then find the rise that’s best for you. For me, I prefer high-rise for loose or culottes pants, because I need to visually lengthen those legs when the pants are voluminously draping over them!
2. Pants Length
Beware of where it hits on your legs. From your ankle to your knee, I feel the most awkward spot the pants could hit is at the widest of your shin. It can visually make you look shorter. To avoid that, I prefer the culottes pants length to be 2-3 inches below my knee, or 4-5 inches above my ankle.
3. Show Off the Shoes
Since the pants are chunky, your shoes can slim down. The key is to make the outfit feel lighter and uplifting. A lot of styles can be a good companion: pointed toe, laced-up details, heels or flats, statement or minimalist, whatever is best suitable for your day.
