Pleated culottes sound awesome for a cruise, they are chic, feminine and comfortable. A cropped or fitted top would look great with pleated culottes. Sandal style or ankle strap shoes, flats or with heels, are appropriate in warm weather climates and would say stylish. Sparkly pumps would look great in the evening. For daytime add a shoulder or crossbody bag or a clutch bag for evening. A piece of statement jewelry, earrings or a necklace will draw the attention upward to your face area. Finish your outfit off with a cropped jacket, blazer or wrap.
Culottes continue to be hot this spring and summer 2016. Culottes generally are cropped, wide leg pants that fall somewhere between the calf to above the ankle. The fashion forward women wear them to the office, barbecues, weddings and they are perfect transitional pieces that can take you into fall if you buy a pair.
Most of the major cruise lines have suggestions on their websites regarding what to wear on the cruise ship you are sailing. Check their website before you decide what to pack. The weather where you will be spending your cruise is the first consideration before you begin packing. Other important things to know are how formal or casual the ship is that you will be cruising on and the length of your cruise.
