It's Official, Culottes Are Our New Spring Staple

We’re guessing the last time you thought about a wide-leg, calf-length pant was when jersey gauchos had their moment 10 years ago. Well, there’s a new trend in trousers that’s a lot more glam and polished, with all the breeziness and comfort. Enter culottes.

This season’s most popular pants are made of weighty, luxe fabrics, and they look killer with a stiletto and a crop top. While not as polarizing as the gaucho, this singular pant is definitely tricky to pull off. We partnered with Nordstrom to seek out some ladies who styled culottes perfectly, making the fashion-forward item look accessible and fresh.
