There happened to be an unfortunate period of time in our childhood when our mother made us wear culottes. We're now convinced that no matter what material, pattern, or pretty color, culottes will never make us feel fabulous. Samantha Pleet just might've found a way around this, though, with her Treasure Shorts ($165)! These shorts look and fit just like a pleated mini-skirt, perfect for transitioning from adventures in the park in the afternoon to dinner at your favorite restaurant in the evening.
