Culottes are a word that originated in the French language. Historically, “culottes” referred to the knee-breeches commonly worn by gentlemen of the European upper-classes from the late middle Ages or Renaissance through the early nineteenth century. This style of tight trousers ending just below the knee was first popularized in France during the reign of Henry III.

Culottes were normally closed and fastened about the leg, to the knee, by either buttons, a strap and buckle, or by a draw-string. During the French Revolution of 1789–1799, working-class revolutionaries were known as the “sans-culottes” – literally, “without culottes” – a name derived from their rejection of aristocratic apparel.

In the United States, only the first five presidents, from George Washington through James Monroe, wore culottes according to the style of the late eighteenth century.

Another latter-day use of the word culottes describes a split or divided skirt or any garment which “hangs like a skirt, but is actually pants.” During the Victorian Era long split skirts were developed for horseback riding so that women could sit astride a man’s saddle rather than riding side-saddle.

The term “culottes” was co-opted from the original French definition of the word to describe these split riding skirts. Later, split skirts were developed to provide women more freedom to do activities such as gardening, cleaning, bike riding, etc. and still look like one is wearing a skirt.
