Gwyneth Paltrow Just Wore the Wide-Leg Alternative to the Capri Jeans Trend

Both jorts and pedal pushers have returned to fashion circles of late, but their underrated sister, the denim culotte, had found itself lagging behind. That was, until now. No matter how you feel about these divisive calf-length jeans, you're about to see them everywhere again. All of a sudden, my favorite brands are stocking the forgotten denim trend, and even Gwyneth Paltrow has just taken it for a springtime spin.

Styling a pair of wide-leg denim culottes, the actor pulled together a smart silhouette that remained true to her polished aesthetic. She wore her cropped Khaite jeans with a chic black blazer and a spattering of jewelry for a fuss-free ensemble that was as refined as ever.

Denim culottes also work well with a lightweight blouse or relaxed knit. To add a summery touch, style with barely-there sandals or opt for a pair of chic Mary Janes to polish your look.
