I am currently gushing on culottes.
It looks like a skirt and a pair of pants at the same time. As for the print, I'd go for solid colors than printed ones.
It has a voluminous hemline; it's not tight like most of my denim pants but is rather loose which makes it comfortable to wear. I love how mine falls mid-calf.
Since it has a voluminous bottom, I opted to wear a crop top in plaid print.
This pair can go from day to night, from casual weekend to more formal events.
Truly a versatile piece in one's closet.
