These A-line culottes are magical! Fantastically flattering, they're our own design and have the same big deep pockets as our Handy Pocket Skirt so you can easily secret away a (big) phone or keys or whatever the kids have discarded!
Can easily be dressed down or up whether it's casual Friday or you feel like a "boss business babe" as one of our customers put it. I've seen these worn with boots, Laboutin's and ballerina pumps. Style them any way you want!
We have spent time listening to our customers feedback and what we learned is you want more choice for work appropriate clothing. You want nice fabrics. You want flattering fits. You want wardrobe investments that you will get plenty of wear and plenty of pleasure wearing. Oh and pockets too. Check.
These culottes are full enough that they look, at first glance, like a skirt but you quickly come to value the cropped trouser features when you are running about in cold wet weather! Also great for modesty if you are often sitting in front of people presenting/teaching/discussing.
Women of all shapes and figures go for these but one group who often seem "utterly gobsmacked" is women with large hips / big thighs. Often an initial refusal to try them on because they believe culottes don't suit them, soon gives way to an evangelical cry of "how did I not understand?!"
Our culottes are made from a good quality fabric with a nice weight so they hang well. Also it's a wool mix that is soft, comfortable, doesn't easily crease and is machine washable.
Even though the wool feels good against the skin we still line our garments to ensure comfort and convenience.
They have a zip at rear - lots of room to bring it up over larger hips. The zip comes to the top of the waistband as this presents a more svelte silhouette for these stylised A-line bottoms.
The pockets are big and deep and can manage the biggest of mobile phones, lanyards, money and cards, all the everyday necessities you have to keep with you. We know this can make all the difference when you're busy and moving about all day.
The black, or charcoal, is mottled with a lighter colour, giving it depth and interest in the woven fabric.
Composition: Outer 50% wool, 30% polyester, 20% cotton
Lining: 100% polyester.
Hand wash or Gentle Cycle Machine Wash on cool temperature. Lay flat to reshape.
Made in Britain, locally in London.
These culottes are designed to sit high on the waist, but in a relaxed natural fit so they won't cinch you in they will just sit on the waist and hip.
