Some Basic Rules to Wearing White Pant

You will be better off if its Fitted

Especially if you will be wearing the white trousers with easy shoes like moccasins, tassel loafers and boat shoes. If you really want to look dappered on white, have them slim fitted. This is not to say you can’t go with a rather loose white lower wear, its just that you run the risk of appearing sloppy

Its Neutrality makes it versatile

Experiment with obvious color combinations like gray and navy blue t-shirts and jackets. You can’t go wrong with those. You can also step out with more bold colors like yellow, lilac, green and pink. Patterned stripe shirts, with a mild torch of white is another winner.

White lower wears appeal most during the summer season. White jeans for example will match your traditional indigo and blue denim shirts. Some very hard to match blazers and some pink and tropical wool shirts might just work well with white jeans or chinos.

Wearing White Pants

Think white chinos. They are a nice blend between formal and informal and can serve both purposes. As an anchoring piece, white chinos can be mixed with lots of different colors from a denim shirt to a patterned shirt.

When it comes to wearing white jeans, fitted and regular/slim jeans works best. Avoid the dated linen white trousers although some designers have worked really hard to bring them back into fashion during summer. If you still like the linen, probably because of its easy feel try pairing it with trainers to give it that street like appearance. Leave out white cargo shorts not because its white but because they are a difficult trend to pull off.

Alternatives to White – Shades of White

Of course there will be a lot of cleaning to do when it comes to wearing with trousers so be sure to wear them to places were the occasion demands it. The club house and the dance floor is a no no. If you aren’t too comfortable wearing white then opt for alternatives shades of white. Examples could include off-white trousers, cream white trousers, eggshell. A lumberjack blazer and a pair of brogues will do just fine with these shades of white.

White Pants Trends and Style Examples for Men
