This is probably one of my most coveted looks of the season. The denim culotte trend will definitely carry into fall, so you might as well invest in a pair of culotte or gaucho jeans now! Bring back the 12 year old in you, that rocked gauchos (with no back pockets) like it was nobody's business. I remember being the weirdo that rocked these pants, but I had no idea it was going to be this cool 10 years later! My roommate and I joked about the gauchos we owned, wearing them with flatforms and espadrilles...it's a wonder we made it out of our small town of Ponte Vedra alive! Anyways, here are four ways to wear culotte jeans in a simple, stylish, and accessible way. But if you want to skip the tips and get the denim culottes I've had my eyes on for a while now, just buy these Vale Denim Frayed Culottes.
FOUR WAYS TO WEAR DENIM CULOTTES OR GAUCHOS
(columns from left to right, hover product to shop)
- The Cool Girl Look – A sleeveless trench, white v-neck tank, and a black tasseled clutch with take a pair of light wash denim gauchos to the next level. Pair with black sandals or slip on vans.
- The Feminine Bohemian – Lace, chambray, crystals. The recipe for a perfect bohemian look. These chambray culottes are the cutest pants I have laid my eyes on. Tuck in a lacy top with a gold collar and you're done!
- The OG – My original inspiration for this new obsession (denim culottes) came from Vale Denim. The seed was plated and I couldn't stop obsessing. The look I saw was a turtle neck sweater, wide brim fedora, and some booties. Simple as that. And ever since I have been hooked. Which is where I drew inspiration for this look.
- The Easy Does It – I tried on this Kimchi Blue top at Urban Outfitters and had to force myself not to buy it. It was a gray layer piece and was made for the 'half-tuck'. Paired with these KILLER shoes, this look is a winner.
