Culottes: The New Pant Trend

Is the reign of skinny jeans finally over? Well, not quite -- but a new pant silhouette is a huge trend for spring (no pun intended). Meet the culotte: a wide-legged, croppedpant that kind of looks like a skirt. They're comfy, cute and cartwheel-approved.

Try them; you'll like them.

♥ The Culottes, Everlane ($46 - $59). Here's a perfect pair of basic black culottes. Dress them up or down, with heels or flats, and you'll start to wonder why you ever wore jeans.
