Culottes: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly




When I found out that culottes were back in style I immediately got excited! How can a girl, let alone a busy mama of 2 hate these wonderfully spacious pants anyhow?

Culottes by definition are women’s knee-length trousers, cut with very full legs to resemble a skirt – amazing right? No more heat induced sticky legs, fashionably chic and of course very loose fitting for that comfortable feel while running errands with the little ones. In theory these are a god-send for mothers everywhere, but in reality for short girls like me…Culottes just make us look FAT and frumpy most of the time. Let’s face it, we aren’t all tall model types with cellulite no where in sight.

Don’t stress though, there is a solution to looking 2016 cool while still being comfortable this summer.

For us short girls, I would suggest pairing these lovely pants with either a pair of wedges/heels and a tighter fitting shirt or a full on jumper style like the one below:


Summer never got more comfortable than this right? Items featured here can all be found at and paired for both a casual look or dressier options.
