The professional terminology of the term culottes are an item of clothing worn on the lower half of the body. The term can refer to either split skirt and knee-high pants that stop at the knee, that allow for flowing movement. I also remember culottes being designed and then created for me to wear at a skate themed party my mother planned for me when I was in elementary school. I recall the red trimmed culotte pants being the perfect idea to wear for my skated themed birthday party where my clothing allowed for freer movement, so that I could skate freely along with my multiple. I look back on days past and I knew my mother's idea was indeed brilliant and I thank her for her wonderful fashion sense and her idea to have my outfit designed and created. I also learned later in life that they are a perfect to wear in Spring and they look absolutely divine with knee-high boots.
