Isn’t it funny that white pants are a summer staple (aka yes, we need some) but they always feel a bit daring? As in- what will I spill on white pants, what stains will I attract, and how can I go from looking pulled together to looking like a mess in the least amount of time?
Maybe it’s just me that has those thoughts (or fears) when I put on white pants.
And again, white pants are a summer staple. Perhaps it’s that they look so chic and cool that they make us feel chic and cool. Maybe it’s the essential summer feeling that makes white pants such a staple. Or perhaps it’s that (even if it’s only temporary), in white pants you can’t help but feel as if you’re pulled together, a “lady”, a bit elevated (whatever that means to you- to me it means the kind of person who can manage not to spill on themselves!).
I’m not the first, nor I will be the last, to let you know that white pants (and dresses and skirts and shoes, etc), it’s not even the first time we’ve chatted about all white outfits this season (see White Dress Season) here. So, if white pants summer is a thing we’re doing, how do we do it?
White pants can be really casual (currently I’m loving white distressed jeans or shorts with a tank) or a bit more formal. For example, paring a pair of white pants (a bit structured) with a wrap top, fun earrings, and kitten heels- perfect for work and play. Of course you could go VERY formal in white pants, but that’s another outfit! I’m the first to admit that wearing white pants can make me a bit nervous (I am a klutz which can lead to spills), but I’m also the first to admit that nothing makes it feel like summer like white pants.
What kind of white pant outfits do you love? Dressed down? Dressed up? A mix with a bit of fun? I don’t think that there is any right or wrong way to wear white pants, but I do know that it always feels like summer when I wear them. Even when it’s not the first time in an outfit-You can see some different thoughts on this outfit here. Yes, this outfit was a pairing I made years ago, and it’s one I still wear today!
