Lauren Eggertsen

Did you know that culottes have been around since 1931? Did you also know that they used to be called "split skirts"? Crazy, I know, but it also makes a lot of sense. Think about it—culottes are shorter than pants, but longer than shorts, are wider than your average trouser but are not a skirt for obvious reasons. Although the term is one we aren't quite comfortable with yet, it's one we can definitely get on board with since chances are you probably already have a few pairs of culottes hanging in your closet, no?

Per usual, when we are searching to find the answers to all of our fashion dilemmas, we scour the feeds of our favorite fashion bloggers and sure enough, they provide us with exactly what we were looking for. This time around, we needed to know exactly what to wear with culottes/split skirts in 2017, and what we found was better than what we'd hoped for.

Go on to find out what fashion girls are wearing with their culottes and to shop their outfits in full.
