Keeping It Cool in Culottes

Imagine your most comfortable pajama pants ever.  Then imagine that those comfy pants are totally acceptable to wear in public and they actually look amazing!  Look no further, because culottes are here and they're pretty much the best things ever invented for that and other reasons.

I always find myself battling the urge to buy trendy items, but when something this comfortable and airy rolls around, (and on sale, may I add) you gotta hop on board.  Usually below the knee pants aren't a great length for me since my ankles (or cankles as I call them) are thick and muscular from years of playing soccer and weird genetics.  Since these are consistently wide through the leg, they sort of dwarf my ankles and make them appear tinier, tapered, and desirable.  Hip hip hooray for culottes! 

These babies are high waisted, slightly stretchy, and fitted through the hips which gives a nice shape without being too baggy.  I found that the best type of shoe to wear this with something with a bit of heel just to elongate your legs and make them look leaner, since it's easy to look kinda short in these.  Also paired these with a fitted top to balance out the bagginess of the bottoms.  

What do you think of this trend?  Do you think it will stick around?  And do you own any culottes of your own?
