Culottes are also known as a split skirt or divided skirt. It has also been called a skort (a portmanteau for skirt and shorts). While some garments sold as culottes resemble short trousers, to truly be culottes they need to look like a skirt. Thus they differ from trousers or shorts by being much fuller at the bottom hem than at the waist. Culottes were developed in order to provide more freedom to do activities such as gardening, cleaning, bike riding, etc. and still look like the wearer is wearing a skirt.
