Just when you thought full ankle exposure was simply a spring trend, culottes go and find their way into many of the fall 2014 collections. What can I say? Designers seem to have a penchant for silhouettes with obnoxious volume and us style mavens seem to gravitate towards them, and non-practical trends like a moth gravitates towards a flame.
From Alexander Wang and Rebecca Taylor, to Proenza Schouler and Derek Lam, the staple which is neither pants or shorts is simply here to stay. So instead of being one of those fashion enthusiasts who is doing their best to complain about the 5 inch loss in leg length (I hate to brag, but being tall does have its advantages), find a pair that works best for your body type and don them like pants are just so last season.
