Editor’s Pick: Zahra’s Roomy Culottes For Easy Chic Days
Now that summer is well and truly behind us, it’s time to start planning your winter wardrobe. My cozy knits and cardis are slowly coming out of hibernation, and warmer pants and leggings will soon become the order of the day.
However, those of us who live in tropical climes (like Mumbai!) can STILL get away with wearing summer staples, and I for one am not retiring my culottes anytime soon. I like to think of culottes as the pant equivalent of a midi skirt, and absolutely love the wide-cut, voluminous fit. It’s easy chic personified.

Culottes have made a dramatic fashion comeback in the past few seasons and even earned themselves must-have status in 2015. What’s more, it’s the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe from summer to winter in style. Which brings me to my current culottes du jour — a lovely indigo-dyed pair from the fun, young label Jodi. Handcrafted in super soft twill fabric, this wide-leg silhouette features a bold geometric print that’s been hand-block printed in Gujarat by local artisans. Comfortable, chic and empowering craftsmen? Now that’s a powerful triumvirate I can totally get behind!
Style them with a white long top that’s cinched at the waist and 70s-style platform wedges for some cool retro vibes.
