When it comes to choosing your new pants, black pants don’t seem like the best choice at first. Maybe because you are in a dilemma about how to wear them. Don’t worry, I’m going to reveal some fashion tricks on how to look super cool in the culottes.
The easiest way to tell you how to wear black culottes is to treat them as a midi skirt. That’s because they’re flattering and loose like the skirt around your legs.
Culottes can be long or short. Depending on this, you can wear a different type of footwear.
When it comes to the shoes, some of the fashion gurus will say to always wear flats while others recommend wearing heels. However, it doesn’t matter as long as you can manage to match the colors of your boots / heels / flats with the top or jacket. The key is not to look awkward.
I’ve put together the best outfit ideas for wearing black culottes. Scroll down to check them out!
Gingham and Black Culottes
There are two trends in one outfit! The black and white gingham top with shoulder-free neckline goes perfectly with the black culottes. It’s a very chic combination that you can wear every day and for work. Pair it with the high-heeled sandals, some gold jewelry and a black bag and you’re good to go.
Wear culottes in winter?
My answer is yes! If you thought you couldn’t wear black pants on winter days, you were wrong my dear. Here is the example of how to pair it with the gray coat, interesting white sweater and ankle boots. It has never been easier to look chic and effortless.
Minimalistic is cool
Minimalist style can never be monotonous, even if it seems so. If you’re into this style, you know that the key is in the details. The culottes are combined with the oversized white tunic. You can top it off with the white sneakers for the clean and very simple look.
Sparkling black culottes
Christmas is around the corner. So, if you are still looking for the perfect vacation outfit, here is my suggestion that includes wearing culottes. They are made of black sequins and look fabulous. You can combine them with the white top over the shoulder with a large ruffle around the neckline.
Classy combination of black and red
If you asked me I’d say this is my perfect work outfit combo. This look is very appropriate and classy. The red top is flattering and has an A-line cut. It’s in excellent proportion to the culottes. You can spice it up with the red ankle boots.
Short culottes with over-the-knee boots
Do you think this is a bad idea? Oh trust me this is it. Play with the lengths and imagine yourself wearing the flattering midi skirt. Team the pants with the oversized gray sweater for a cozy look.
The belt pouch is a super cool detail when you want to look trendy.

Perfect summer look
When you are on vacation it is important to wear something flattering and comfortable. At plus 40 degrees, you not only want to look stylish, but also leisurely. The culottes can give you that. You can wear them with the white off shoulder top with large ruffle. Customize it all with classic black Converse.
Biker jacket and black culottes
The biker leather jacket gives you the rebel look and the crop top is all the rage. Combining trends is the great and very easy thing! Be creative and combine your culottes with these stylish and classy staples. You get an excellent outfit for parties, but also for everyday life.
Plaid and culottes
This top is one of the prettiest I’ve seen lately. Plaid definitely got all the glory this year. So be sure to have a checkered staple. You can combine it with the culottes just like that. Add a statement bag for a super chic look.
Fluffiness for winter days
For a cozy and warm feeling on cold winter days, wrap yourself in the fluffy white coat and wear culottes for a trendy looking outfit. You can style it with the pointed patent leather ankle boots.
Black leather culottes
If you are a fan of leather and want your staples to be made out of this material, then check out these lovely culotte leather pants. They look great even when you pair them with a plain white t-shirt. For a chic look, add open toe ankle boots.
Black & white is an eternal combination
There is nothing like a black and white combo that you can wear on different occasions. Olivia Palermo knows how to do it. She wears the white blouse with flared sleeves, black pants and stilettos.
Green faux fur coat
This coat is a perfect staple to make every outfit look exciting and attractive. You can combine it with the culottes for a chic and classy look. Wear this combination for business meetings, while in the office or enjoying a drink with friends.
Add bright colors
Always try to combine some light colors with black. The yellow sweater contrasts well with black. You can wear the pants high-waisted and with a belt. The furry, colorful bag is eccentric and a very noticeable detail.
Striped sweater is always a good idea
Wear your favorite striped sweater with the black leather culottes and you will have a killer combo without so much effort. This look is a great inspiration for workwear. Combine everything with the black stilettos.
I hope you found something interesting for yourself. As you can see, culottes aren’t that difficult to combine, although at first glance it might seem like they are. Don’t let the length and cut discourage you. Wear it as a midi skirt and enjoy!
