Culottes are an item that many of us unfondly associate with childhood, remembering some very dubious eighties styles that eventually caused the wide-legged short to disappear for many a year. Thankfully the current crop of high street designers are going further back into fashion history for inspiration, as seen in items like these High Waisted Culottes from Lipsy.
With a light and summery feel, this pair takes inspiration from the 1960s to combine a flowing wide-legged short with a structured high waistline and feminine daisy print fabric. The addition of matelot-style buttons at the waist lends another simple retro element too.
They're now available from Lipsy for £35.
