The detail on this culotte suit is fabulous, you might think I am a bit of a nerd for this but despite how well constructed and lovely this vintage 1950's play suit is my favorite part is the buttons! Arent they darling? Culottes are such a timeless wonderful wardrobe staple and definitely perfect for lounging around the pool. In layman's terms a culotte is just another word to describe a split skirt or divided skirt. Women during the Victorian Era often wore long split skirts which were practical for horseback riding. After the turn of the century these split skirts were essential to providing women more ease and freedom in doing activites like gardening, cleaning, bike riding, and the best benefit of a culotte is the illusion of looking like one is wearing a skirt.
