Culottes were originally worn by men in the late Middle Ages, but when women took part in more physical activities during the Victorian era, they began to wear culottes as well. Although this piece was gone for awhile, it has made its big comeback as we see this piece worn not only  by celebrities and bloggers, but by everyday people we see sporting street style. There are many reasons why lots of girls (and boys!) opt to wear culottes despite it dating back to the Middle Ages. Here are a few that will hopefully convince you to get your own pair if you don't have one yet.

  1. Culottes won't make you choose between comfort and style.

A question we often ask ourselves when purchasing any piece of clothing is if we are going to prioritize comfort or style. When purchasing culottes, there is no need to choose one over the other, because culottes are definitely comfortable and stylish. Imagine having the feel of a lazy day look but looking sleek and put together as well. How great is that?

  1. Culottes are very versatile.

You can wear culottes to school, to work, or even for Sunday lunch dates. It's a piece you can really invest on and use several times over. It's not a one-time-wear piece that will be left buried in your closet.

  1. You can wear culottes for formal events and meetings.

You can even wear culottes to formal events. It resembles a skirt, so if you want to go for that look but need the extra comfort, culottes are the way to go. I personally would wear culottes to important meetings and interviews since I would feel free to move in my clothes, and yet know that I look presentable.

  1. Culottes are for all kinds of weather.

Culottes are not too short to feel cold, and yet not too skin tight to feel hot. You can layer up during winter or dress down at the beach with culottes.

If a certain style or print does not fit your aesthetic or the peg you are going for, there are many other culottes to choose from.

If you love wearing basics, but you're tired of just wearing jeans and t-shirts every day, you can try pairing a basic tee with culottes. Achieve that laid back look with a twist.

  1. Culottes can be matched with different shoe styles.

Flats, heels, sneakers, or boots—you name it, culottes can match with it!

  1. You can pair it with vests and trench coats.

You can experiment, mix and match with culottes. Even outwear pieces look good with culottes.

  1. It's perfect for your travel OOTDs.

Culottes are easy to pack and light weight so it's easy to pack when traveling.  It's not hassle to walk around in culottes if you will be exploring the city or doing physical activities.
