7 Ways To Wear Culottes This Overcast Bank Holiday Weekend

7 Ways To Wear Culottes This Overcast Bank Holiday Weekend

The Debrief: Because everyone complains when it's hot anyway

It’s typical British weather and we shouldn’t be surprised, but according to all accounts, this bank holiday is set to be a mish-mash of cloud, drizzle and frizz-inducing humidity. It’s a bit hot for jeans but too chilly for that summer dress that you’ve been waiting to wear, and people from all over are joining Instagram’s culottes clique. They’re no longer just for Brownie Guides, so we’ve cherry-picked the best culottes on Instagram. 

1. Get on the stripe hype

 Team monochrome stripes with bright accesories and a plain white tee for off-duty cool points. 

 

2. Hello yellow

 Ignore the clouds and be your own ray of sunshine in a fetching mustard pair. 

 

3. Jean genie 

 If you really can't let go of the comfort of your trusty jeans, pair denim culottes with trainers for a chilled bank-hol BBQ. 

 

4. Pleats are neat

 Head to topshop for their take on the trend. These pleats are all too pleasing. 

 

5. Everything's going to be all white

 If you're feeling brave, grab a white pair to wear with a classic denim jacket. Just beware of grass stains, melting ice lollies and red wine.

 

6. Back in black

Black doesn't have to mean formal. Mix it up with a loud shirt for low-key cool.  

 

7. Style squared

 It's nearly summer after all, why not brighten up your wardrobe with a patterned pair.
