Cool Culottes

Okay, maybe not the entire shorts round up I featured today is 100% culottes. A couple are considered more of a Bermuda short style. My point is, this season, longer shorts are making a come back. Praise the Lord. Even though I haven't officially added this style to my closet, I do have the romper that I featured from Nordstrom today on the way. Let's just hope it looks as cute on me as it does on the model and it's on CRAZY sale. 


We all know that styles and fads come and go. The culotte trend is no exception. I vividly remember wearing numerous versions of these back in my elementary days. It's not like I could have held onto them until now, but hey, I can surely reinvent the wheel. I am interested to see how this trend takes flight and how long it lasts. I am all about experimenting, taking risks and having fun with fashion, but will be sure to take it slow and in small doses. What about you?

I think I may have to pass on this trend as I know I wouldn't wear them for long But some are really cute.

The polka dot ones are my fav! I have to admit I tend to like shorts that aren't bermudas, but I have found myself looking at longer ones this season!

Hmmmmmmm interesting and a trend I'm not sure I can actually rock. I will have to try them on for sure. I am definitely into a longer short so that my rear is fully covered

I'm still on the fence about these - I like how they look on other people, but would have to try them on to see if they are actually flattering on my shape. I do love those floral print ones! :)

I'm still into the short shorts......but I'm thinking my age is starting to dictate that I try some of these babies out. Good round up!

I think the Culotte trend is a bit much for me (says the girl who can't wait to buy overall shorts!), , but I LOVE the knew length denim shorts you show. Cute!

Alissa said...

I love all these fun prints but I just can't get on board with this trend. Although I say that and maybe I might try out the polka dot ones!

Lewis Lane said...

Think the longer short is a better look, and glad has been coming back. Wish I wasn't short so long stuff didn't look so bad on me

Erica Zar said...

I love that the longer shorts are back in style! I have two pairs that I have recently bought and I can't wait to wear them! Love the romper you picked out! Can't wait to see how you'll style it!

I have to be honest...not a fan of the culottes! I like the prints but the long loose shorts thing is kind of weird - I'd rather just wear a skirt! I think the bermuda shorts are fine because not everyone should be wearing super short shorts! I hope this trend doesn't stick around :-)
