Culottes are a fash­ion trend that most have prob­a­bly for­got­ten. At its height, peo­ple went crazy for the loose fit­ting pants that resem­bled a skirt when not in motion. They were breezy, com­fort­able and looked great on just about every shape. But the trend didn’t real­ly car­ry over into the 2000s… until a few years ago. How­ev­er, every­thing comes back in style even­tu­al­ly (hel­lo bell bot­toms!) and we found 15 black fash­ion blog­gers who are re-intro­duc­ing the world to the culotte.

Busi­ness in the front, par­ty in the back. 


A lit­tle off the shoul­der action.

Cute. I like the first pic­ture.

Learn some­thing new every­day. I pur­chased 2 and was not aware of the name. Good to know.


Here’s a geezer insight to pro­vide his­tor­i­cal per­spec­tive. If culottes are com­ing back, they ain’t these hijab-style gar­ments. The orig­i­nals were above the knee.


Not a fan of this trend, but looks good on some of the ladies.

Not all of these qual­i­fy as culottes. Culottes usu­al­ly hit some­where around the bot­tom of the calf. The ones that are long enough to cov­er the feet are palaz­zo pants, which were also trendy in the 70s. As for the ones in between…I don’t know what you’d call those…


These women look incred­i­ble. I am so inspired. I wish I could find or sew clothes like this.


Nice pho­tos and great idea but some of these young women need to learn how to hem a pair of pants. Some of those pants were drag­ging on the ground. Hem­ing a pair of pants may be a bit time con­sum­ing but you look a lot more pol­ished and the fab­ric isn’t drag­ging on the ground and being frayed and torn. If you don’t want to do it estab­lish a rela­tion­ship with a good neigh­bor­hood tai­lor or dry clean­er.


I think the unpol­ished look is part of the trend today.
