Keke Palmer Looks Great in Culottes (And Now, So Can You)

Beauty & Style | Melanie Yvette Martin | 06/09/2015 | 05:08 PM EDT

Keke got the memo: Culottes are officially the new must-have pants!

Oh, Keke. You always find a way to melt our hearts with your chic style and unexpected hair cuts.

Keke stunned in a pair of white culottes this week, bringing back those old school memories. Back in the day, most of us weren’t checking for the mid-length spring/summer cutoff pant. But now, culottes are back in style, and have gotten a serious update.

Check out some of our favorite styles and let us know if you’ll be rocking a pair this season.


For a fun summer print:

Try Anthropologie’s Palolem Culottes ($118) in navy or white for a simple approach to prints. If you’re ready to go all out, these TopShop Japanese Floral Border Print Culottes ($65) are pretty much calling your name.


For an easy dress up pant that keeps you cool:

Go for H&M’s Silk Culottes ($79.95). They can be taken from day to night with just a slight heel and form-fitting top.


For an office appropriate pair:

Look to Zara’s Cropped High Waisted Trousers ($79.90), and add a flare of “boss lady” with a pump and cream-colored blouse. Want to save a bit of money? Opt for these Target Fashion Union culottes ($29.99) in white.


For vacation ready trousers:

Stick to thinner materials and bold colors that will get you in the mood for your fabulous vacation.  We love the prints on these TopShop Tulip Print Cutouts ($65).


For the moments you just want to lounge around (and still look chic):

Go for a color that says “relaxed, but still stylish”, like these gray wide trousers by Nasty Gal.


For a sexy night out on the town:

Show off your shape with a culotte jumper like this ASOS Plunging jumpsuit (just don’t forget your fashion tape).
