We only have one question as we close the year: How did the fashion trend cycle manage to fly through nearly every denim trend in existence in less than 365 days? Skinny jeans are still on the back burner while straight leg and boot cut jeans take the front seat. But might we suggest denim culottes for anyone looking to stand out from the bunch? Naturally, a slew of fashion-forward trendsetters are already on it, and they’re serving up fresh inspiration for styling the look.
Think of denim culottes as the ultra-polished relative of your standard jeans. As such, you may often see them styled with an office-ready spin, but paired with anything from playfully printed tops to near floor-length dusters, there’s proof that the wide silhouette is totally capable of producing fun and relaxed ensembles as well. As acquired of a taste as they may be, we’ve rounded up six outfits ahead that make the case for everyone to grab a pair this season.
