Of all the trends swirling around the fashion-loving set this season, perhaps the most polarizing is the return of culottes. While we're never ones to discourage experimentation (fashion is fun, people), knowing what to pair with a pant style such as this—with its cropped hem and voluminous legs—is a challenge.

The best solution is to look to early adopters in the fashion field. In this case, we're turning to the styling expertise of Brazilian blogger Helena Bordon. Her easy-yet-put-together combination of culottes and a cropped tee is the sort of trend-friendly look anyone can try.

We focused on denim culottes to re-create Bordon's look. And, since the tee in the first outfit below will match perfectly with either pair of pants, we chose a more dressed-up top in the same shape for our splurge version of the ensemble. Shop both looks below:
