We’re rendering a verdict here: culottes are cool again.
To be honest, when we first saw them on the Spring 2014 runways (see: Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Emporio Armani), we questioned the return of the skirt-like piece that are too long to be shorts and too short to be pants. Now enter Zendaya.
The singer/actress wore hers paired with a matching boxy blazers while baring her taut tummy. She went with the wet look for her hair, slicking it back behind her shoulders, and finished off her look with a nude lip, smokey eye and eyeliner.
But back to those bottoms: They’re not your grandma’s go-to pants anymore. On Z, they’re very fashion forward, right?
