Would They Wear Culottes?

Pin It

This spring I noticed that culottes had come back into fashion for the spring/summer 2014 and have been more prevalent this year.  I am pretty excited about this trend because I have always loved them. They have the comfort and practicality of shorts but have a dressy quality about them.  I think they are a lovely option for a tween girl.

And what makes a culotte different from shorts?

According to Wikipedia it is "Culottes are an item of clothing, originally the knee-breeches commonly worn by gentlemen of the European upper-classes from the late Middle Ages or Renaissance through the early nineteenth century."  To learn more about this fashionable short pant read the rest of the Wiki article HERE.

I also like a shorter version of the culotte that hits at the knee.  I think it is a great length for active tweens running around at home, the playground, or on family outings.

So what do you think?  Would your tween wear culottes?
