If you are feeling bold, these high-waisted red culottes are a fabulous choice. The clean lines of the silhouette ensure that it stays sophisticated. Paired with a crop top, the look is a modern take on eveningwear.

Most of the culottes out there today are of a longer length but short ones are fun too.
This punchy magenta pair is refreshingly youthful, and the black ribbon tie helps highlight and flatter the waist.

These culottes, with their A-line cut and length, take their skirt-resembling definition seriously.
The black piping at the hem helps define the skirt shape and keeps the light-coloured chequered fabric from disappearing.

These basic black culottes are a great starter version of the pants - very skirt-like and easy to match.
Free of any additional embellishment or distracting details, they provide the perfect blank silhouette to balance a crazy top.

Like full skirts, culottes are a good canvas for an interesting pattern.
This navy-and-white leaf print gives the pants a more resort-like feel. Wear it in place of denim shorts for a casual but more elegant look.
