Culottes have many advantages, not the least of which is its barbecue-to-black-tie versatility. They’re also transitional, the perfect piece to wear from winter into spring. You can sport culottes on date night, paired with a camisole and strappy heels, or clash jewel tones for an easy way to rock colour during the winter slump. Structured culottes can be balanced with a tailored blazer, and you can also give it a casual daytime flair with a graphic sweatshirt.
Global Desi’s A/W 2014 ‘London Calling’ Collection has incorporated this ‘abbreviated trouser’ in its signature eclectic prints and kaleidoscopic hues.
