Culottes for Summer 2009

Trend Alert: Culottes

It's finally starting to feel a bit warm in the UK and most people are celebrating by revealing a bit of leg! There are a lot of short shorts around at the moment, but they can be quite daunting and unflattering. If you're eager to be more adventurous than a skirt, but uncomfortable in shorts then maybe culottes are for you.

They're usually high waisted and have a classic Summer holidays feel to them. I particularly love these floral print culottes from Urban Outfitters (£35). I would wear them with sandals and a plain tee for a great festival or daytime look. Also, Labour of Love's cotton culottes (£68) are a more subtle way to wear the trend.
