The coolness of culottes and the freedom they offer when it comes to pants width and length cannot be denied when celebrities take to them for red carpet appearances and functions. Melissa McCarthy, Keke Palmer and Rose Byrne have all been spotted in these pants a time or two.
Whilst Melissa McCarthy and chose to pair theirs with peplum tops, Rose Byrne went for the currently chic preppy look with a tie-neck blouse complete with blazer. For a more young twist on the look; Keke Palmer paired culottes with a bandeau top or go for a complete matchy matchy look in lingerie inspired set ala Whitney Port.
Whichever way you choose to style them, culottes are having a major moment on the red carpet and are worth a try.
