A surprisingly versatile pants, also referred to as culottes are perfect compromise when you want the look of a skirt with the comfort of pants.  Culottes are loose enough to be comfy, but still retaining enough structure to appear polished. For fall weather, I especially like faux leather culottes that hit midway between the knee and the edge of the calf. The key is to show enough leg to lengthen the body and they should be worn with a high heels. I like that culottes are versatile for any occasion, you can wear it to work with a nice sleeveless blazer or to a Sunday brunch with a nice comfy cashmere turtleneck. My favorite look is to wear it with the crisp white button down shirt.
