Last summer, I bought myself a pair of white denim culottes with frayed hems. They're perfect but also pristinely white, so the chances of me wearing them are slim because the chances of me getting them dirty are very high. (In the past I've made multiple mental notes to never purchase white jeans for this very reason, and yet... )
Luckily, I've found a pair of cropped denim culottes from Urban Outfitters that I can wear — and get dirty — with ease. The jeans come in a washed black color that conveniently hides the occasional scuff or spill. Plus, its exaggerated silhouette doesn't look like it's going to swallow my five-foot-two frame whole. (A feat when it comes to shopping for petite-friendly culottes.) The hems are also frayed, making them cool AF, and lately I've been wearing them with Chelsea boots and an oversize sweater, which is pretty much my most favorite outfit at the moment. If you want to see these bad boys in action, check out our video recap from New York Fashion Week. Should you feel that you need them in your life as well, I suggest you act fast. These culottes were recently restocked after selling out online. Go go go!
