I've talked before about how silly it was that I waited so long to jump on the culotte train. I'm obsessed now and I find any way to incorporate them into my wardrobe. I know some people shy away from culottes due to the odd length but when styled correctly, I found that it can be flattering on a number of body types. I personally think culottes look best styled with a heel but for a more relaxed look, styling them with a pointed toe flat is a good alternative. The pointed toe will elongate the legs so that the hem of the pant doesn't shorten you. Showing as much skin as possible between the bottom of the pant and the shoe will also help to add the illusion of height.
