Happy Monday friends!
White pants is often thought to be a wardrobe staple come summer. They look fresh and therefore are perfect for the season and look exceptional with neutrals or bold colors. I also understand how challenging (and frustrating) it can be to find a pair that works with your body shape.
Here are some tips to consider when shopping that will make things a bit easier:
As with any of your clothing purchases, fit should be the first thing to consider. White highlights everything, so it's key to find pants that are of a strong material that also has some stretch. If they don't, they can push against the skin in an unflattering way drawing attention to bulges and cellulite, which none of us want. This is particularly important when shopping for white jeans, as pants tend to graze the body.
More labels are experimenting with unique and interesting pant designs, which makes finding a pair that flatters your body shape easier than it may have been before.
(1) If you are bottom curvy and want to work with your curves without adding any additional visual weight to the legs, styles that have more than one button are a great way to draw the eye up, especially if you do a half tuck with the top you wear with it. These styles often come in a high rise, which are all the more flattering because they show off the hips and showcase a smaller waistline.
(2) If you wish to conceal a larger midsection, waistbag styles are a great option because they're often high waisted and they either have elastic waistbands or drawstrings that allow for you to adjust them in a way that's both comfortable and flattering without the worry of a muffin top effect.
These suggestions can of course apply to any and all bottoms you shop for, but are especially important when shopping for white pants because as previous mentioned, they highlight and can easily make the legs appear shorter or stubby.
I hope after reading this post you feel encouraged to add a pair of white pants to your summer wardrobe because the fact of the matter is that they're not only great to wear during the warmer months, but you can definitely wear them all year long.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday!
