When I think of culottes, I think back to my awkward tween years when I had no sense of fashion (since I went to a school that had uniforms), and so my mom would buy my clothes for me. And her style back then was all about culottes. So I basically wore what she wore which meant culottes during the summer months when school was out or on weekends. And it looked a lot like this:
Ever since those days I've had quite an aversion to culottes (even the word culottes makes me cringe). But when Everlane came out with their modern take on the culotte for 2016, I thought it was at least worth trying (plus if it worked out, I thought it would be a great alternative to jeans in the summer. I mean who wouldn't want to look stylish and feel like they're wearing PJs at the same time?).
So I gave it a shot. But I forgot how much shorter I am than the models on Everlane's site:
Lol, they're almost long pants. I'm not sure what you call this style but they look like harem pants without the tapering at the ankles. The waistband on these pants are elastic which means they're comfortable but also looks more casual. The poplin is crisp but wrinkles easily so again you'll be spending some time with your iron to make these look good. Also the poplin is kind of thin so make sure you're wearing underwear that won't show VPL.
Ah well at least I tried something new, but I think I'll be sticking to my shirt and jeans. All Everlane items can be purchased here (referral link) and other Everlane reviews can be found here. Thanks for reading another Everlane review!
