I decided that this little QVC emotie did not properly convey my horror at the thought of culottes. It's more like this.......

I like skorts better, too. I don't really hate culottes.... I am a little curious why everyone here seems to dislike them so much.....

I love them and can't wait. I don't do bike shorts in the summer.

Want to add, I don't do them any time of year!!!!!!

I think that if they have a modern look - shorter, dropped waist and well tailored to fit properly, they could work for the right figure. I am just as surprised as everyone else, but I googled it and sure enough, culottes are all over Europe - Paris, London, etc.

So what is the difference between skorts and culottes? I would think they are the same thing, am I wrong. I love skorts, comfy yet just a little dressier than shorts. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

women's flared trousers cut to look like a skirt This is the definition I found for Culottes. Hmmm Well if that is the case, I vote NO on the culottes and YES on the skorts!!!

Skorts have that flap in the front to make them look like a skirt from the front. Culottes are like cropped palazzo pants. They can be any length from above the knee to mid calf.

A skort looks like a skirt because the underlayer of shorts is covered by a top layer of fabric. So you don't see the shorts part. But with culottes you see the split, because there is no fabric over it. I wish l could send photos of both, but my iPad won't let me!
