how to style culotte pants for petite women

BP pants xxs (updated version w/ 22″ inseam; similar from Macy’s), Uniqlo top xs BP scarf, Ann Taylor kitten heels sz 5 c/o (also styled here), Goyard tote

I’ve been meaning to blog about these pants for a while, and just saw that they’re included in Nordstrom’s Fall Sale for a great price with free shipping! I love the concept of culottes, and these are like a super comfy sweater pant version (with pockets!). The lightweight ribbed knit is perfect for lounging, and the cut is quite versatile for dressing up or down. For running errands, pair these pants with flats (I’ve done either pointed black flats or my tan Soludos espadrilles) and either a cropped top or a fitted tee tucked into the waist. For an evening look, try them with a silky camisole and heels.

Here’s some items in my closet that are also part of Nordstrom’s Fall sale!
Leith ruched dress (25% off) – Loved this flattering dress well into my pregnancy! See my review.
Vince Camuto ankle bootie (33% off) – comfy low bootie starting in sz 4. See my review.
Blank NYC suede jacket (33% off) – this ever popular jacket is 33% off in a classic color that doesn’t usually go on sale! See on me in a darker color. Note I had the sleeves shortened by a tailor.
Caslon tiered long sleeve tee (under $25) – cute layering tee adorned with peplum ruffles. See on me in stripes.
Halogen cashmere sweater (33% off) – staple piece starting in xxs petite.

And a few other picks available in extended sizing:
Marc Fisher bootie (40% off) – such a sharp looking boot that looks reminiscent of my old favorite ones.
Marc Fisher pumps (40% off) – the silhouette on these look reminiscent of Manolo BBs and I love the suede colors!
1.STATE leopard pumps – low, block heeled pump with great reviews
Topshop faux leather jacket – starting in size 2 petite (Topshop runs small so this fits like a 00/0)

Note these ribbed knit pants are in regular sizing, so the length is intended to be more cropped than where they fall on me. I considered shortening them for a true culotte look, but decided to keep the length since the extra inch or two felt elongating. Fit is true to size – the drawstring waist is stretchy and worked me well in xxs.

  7. Looking so beautiful, Jean! ❤️ Culotte pants are everything! It’s been more than a year since I’ve worn mine. I guess it’s time to take them out again, they’re perfect for winter! 🙂
