A definite success for S/S ’14, culottes are back for a second innings as all the fashion capitals give their nod to the relaxed and comfort-driven bottom wear for the upcoming summer. What differed for this year was that the versions seen this time had a definite inclination towards the vintage high-waist trend. While some presented scrunched and bow waist styles, others went for high-waist flares and the rest, showcased loose fit swinging culottes that were outrageously oversized and basketball shorts loose. Some designers explored the possibilities of leather and suede for the laid-back bottoms, whereas others stuck to lightweight fluid fabrics that befit the construction. The styles looked best in a palette of lighter shades like powder blue, beige, white and rose pink.
