Trending: athletic culottes

From streetwear to activewear, this silhouette is having a moment.

Recently, ‘70s-inspired culottes—under-the-knee-length trousers with a wide-leg—are making a comeback via some of the most stylish celebs (fans include Sienna Miller and Victoria Beckham) and legendary fashion houses like Chloe, Haider Ackermann, and Armani. Currently gathering momentum: activewear iterations of the pants. They’re hitting the streets and, in some cases even the gym floor, as one of the most prominent spring trends. It makes sense given that they’re comfortable, provide a full range of motion, and pair just as well with sneakers as they do with a pair of heels.
