If one thing's certain, it's that a winter wardrobe can start to feel redundant. No matter the size of your denim drawer or trouser selection, we all know the discouraging feeling of rotating through all your favorite cold-weather outfits. Today, we hope to spark some fashion inspiration by introducing how to wear culottes in the winter.

We know—the cropped, wide-leg style seems counterintuitive in the cold. Though with the right styling techniques, culottes are an easy addition to your outfit routine. The first way to transition them into the winter is by wearing the cropped hem style with ankle boots to cover up the exposed skin. Secondly, fashion girls tend to pair their culottes with a large coat or chunky sweater on colder days. Finally, layering is key. Wear a flattering turtleneck or fitted blouse underneath your winter jacket to balance out the flowy style. We turned to the most fashionable It girls to see exactly how they style their culottes in the winter, and this is what we discovered.
