Culottes are controversial. Even in the midst of a millennial renaissance, the mix of skirts and skirts is still a headache, prompting questions like “But, why ?” and “To what end?” Taylor Swift set out to quell any lingering anxieties with a contemporary take on retro on Tuesday.

Swift’s denim culottes feature an asymmetrical apron-style drape and fasten with a tie at the waist. The resulting silhouette was surprisingly refined, a blend of beach boardwalk and rural landscape, with Swift styling signature pieces like chunky Mary Jane loafers by GHBass and a Dôen farmhouse shirt with eyelets. A vintage raffia bag and claw clip-on updo complete the look.
Swift has worn two skirts this week: on Monday she wore a pleated preppy Free People style with the buttons untucked – puffer jacket, oxfords and Black baseball cap. In short: yes, the culotte is officially back—as long as it’s supported with thoughtful elements and accessories.
