Why You Can Wear White Pants

A look from Narciso Rodriguez.

If you've never worn white pants before, you are missing out. Dressed up or down, white pants are effortlessly sophisticated and fashionable. Here's why you can and should add them to your wardrobe:

  • They don't make you look fat. That's a fashion myth! Just make sure pockets lay flat and choose boot cut or a slight flare for the most flattering fit.

  • You know what to wear under them: seamless panties in a skintone color (NOT white, black or anything with a print/color). You may have to go with a thong or boyshort, experiment to see which looks best.

  • You can get them for under $30. There's no need to worry about stains at prices that low! Wear enough heel to keep them from grazing the ground.

  • They match almost everything. Think of white pants as a modern alternative to black.
