Is it a skirt? Are they pants? We may never know. But what we do know is that culottes are back and they’re better than ever. And while they seem to be very polarizing—my editor said she’s “terrified of them”—these wide-leg pants are the must-have item for fall. The best of both worlds, culottes are amazing because they can be chic and incredibly comfortable at the same time. Can you say that about any other piece of clothing in your wardrobe? I didn’t think so. So, I am on team culottes this season because if you know anything about me, you know I love me some comfortable but chic clothing.
It’s time to bring back the culottes, kids.

Didn’t know culottes came in denim? Me either. But now I can’t get enough. These jeans may be super wide leg but they are also super sleek.
