i've been trying to singlehandedly bring back culottes for several years now. I wear them with high leather boots and it reminds me of YSL circa 1977-78.

I've noticed that there have been some culotte sightings on the fall runways this year-Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Taylor, etc...

would you wear them?

Nope.

As always, to each her own.

culottes rock!
I think they are awesome with boots. In the Spring with high strappy sandals is a great look as well.

I wouldn't, but I am a guy.

I don't find them attractive, though admittedly some women look attractive in anything.

sailed, nooo...in fact, I think it's still just a little too fashion-forward for most people to relate to

I guess in a way, it's good...it means that my look is more unique and I won't see myself coming and going everywhere...

i'm just trying to understand why so many people are anti-culottes, because A LOT of people are and I just keep thinking it's because they don't know how to style them... I keep thinking I can show them the way

i feel completely helpless-I don't know how to post a pic...

culottes are basically an a line skirt with a split in the middle-sort of a combination skirt/pant.

Katherine Hepburn wore them a lot...

I like them on some people.... but I am not one of those people. They remind me of sitting in a stuffy church in the summer when I was a little girl. Culottes were always the comprimise my mother and I made between what I would wear on my own and the frilly girl dresses she wanted.

I like them, they look good with ankle boots or pumps.
