3 Ways to Feel Confident Wearing Culotte Jumpsuits

The thought of wearing culottes brings up mixed emotions for most of us. Yes, they’re in style, but can they look chic, especially after 40? I vote yes, especially if we’re talking culotte jumpsuits, which happen to be the hot new trend. Here’s how to wear culotte jumpsuits with confidence.

Culotte Jumpsuit - Casual Print

1. Choose a Flattering Cut

A culotte jumpsuit is no more than a flowy dress with a split down the middle when you think about it. Choose your culotte jumpsuit as you would a figure-flattering dress. Look for one fitted in the top, nips in at the waist, and then flares out like a skirt. This will give you a slimming hourglass shape.

2. A Solid Color is Flattering

Culottes are cropped, so you don’t get that continuous vertical line with long pants. One way to balance that is by wearing a culotte jumpsuit in a solid color. This carries the eye downward, elongating your frame.  Wear neutral-colored shoes in a similar shade to make your legs look longer too.

3. Wear Heels

Flats look relaxed and breezy with a culotte jumpsuit, but if you want a dressier look and look taller, wear heels.  They don’t have to be sky-high. Even a kitten heel will create the illusion of having much longer legs. Once again, nude sandals are ideal!
