Trend Report - Culottes

Trend Report - Culottes

Culottes have been in vogue for a few seasons and are huge again for #AW18.  We love them as they are the perfect way to stay comfortable and stylish.

 Often referred to as "Wrap Front" Pants, culottes make a statement.  Great casual style on the streets of Paris Fashion Week.   Image

In modern English, use of the word culottes describes any garment which hangs like a skirt, but is actually pants.  They are basically a similar silhouette as a midi skirt, but with the ease of pants, having a small waist and wider legs.

Over the years I have had many clients who think they can't wear culottes and have been pleasantly surprised when they tried them on.

"The moment I pulled them up over my thighs I instantly fell in love!" - Cazinc Client

 "If I could design a pair of pants for curvy women who love style and comfort, these would be it." - Caz

The Mandala pant is the ultimate style to flatter women of all shapes and sizes.

They exude a sense of ease through slouchy suiting and sportswear references.  Their high waistband gives you a brilliant hourglass shape and a diagonal at the front, which creates an illusion of slimmer legs.

Smart enough for work and also look cool styled casually with sneakers.

The sky is the limit with these pants, but be careful, they may be sold out soon, primarily as I have purchased a few pairs.

Purchase your Mandala Pants here, but please be warned, they are addictive.

Here are some photos I shot last Friday with gorgeous fashion designer Julian.  Of course being Friday, there were some bubbles involved and lots of fun and stylish ways you can enjoy your culottes.
