Bad news is, whichever name you choose to call them pretty much determines your age: Culottes are what we wore in the 90s and Palazzo Pants are what we are wearing today. The good news? Regardless of what you call them, they both refer to the same style.
A note to all my short girls out there-- you can wear this style too! Just make sure you wear them long, not cropped, as this will add length to your silhouette.
Take a look at how I am enjoying my Palazzo Pants!
