I'm a big believer in only embracing trends that fit within your personal style & flatter your body shape. I was actually an early adopter of culottes (see my post from last summer here), so I was happy to see them all over the runways this year - clearly, they are here to stay. Think about styling them in the same way as you would a midi skirt (this also helps when determining the best length for your frame). You want a tailored fit in the waist & hips with no sagging or puckering, which may mean having alterations made if they aren't perfect right off the rack. You can either choose a fitted, structured top to balance out the voluminous shape on bottom or you can keep it relaxed with slouchy soft styles, as I did here. While I typically prefer to wear heels with culottes to help elongate the legs, they take on a laid-back cool vibe when paired with chic slide sandals.
