Gwyneth Paltrow Just Wore the Wide-Leg Alternative to Spring's Carpi Jeans Trend

Whilst both jorts and pedal pushers have enjoyed several summers of popularity, their underrated sister, the denim culotte, had found itself lagging behind. That was until this season.

All of a sudden, my favourite brands are stocking the forgotten denim trend, and none other than Gwyneth Paltrow has just taken it for a springtime spin. Styling a pair of wide-leg denim culottes, the actor pulled together a smart silhouette that remained true to her infamously polished aesthetic. In true Paltrow form, she wore her cropped jeans with a neat black blazer and a spattering of jewellery for a fuss-free ensemble that was as refined as ever.

Whilst both wide-leg jeans and capri pants have been trending throughout the season, this in-between silhouette hasn’t been so quick to catch on. Now, however, spring has arrived and the culotte denim trend is doing the rounds once more.

Whilst Paltrow styled hers with a smart black blazer, the denim trend also works well with a lightweight blouse or relaxed knit. To add a summery touch, style with barley-there sandals or opt of a neat mary jane to polish your look.
