The Culotte Revolution Begins

This isn’t revolutionary France, but there might just still be a divide between fashionistas who are wearing culottes this season, and those who haven’t caught on yet. While the name stems from the French bourgeois class who wore the to-the-knee pants, these have a lot more in common with their 1980s brethren than the1780s versions. Have a look-see at who is doing them best for fall.
