Just because the culottes are high-wasted, it makes it easier to rock with a crop top. They can also be worn to the office with a nicely fitted shirt and a pair of court shoes.

A casual tee shirt can also be worn over a pair of culottes, simply tuck the tee in and slip into a pair of flat sandals.
