How to look your best (slim and trim) in white pants.

Summer is quickly approaching and white pants are the go-to pant for summer. They are trendy, fresh, and perfect with any top. These fashion rules will help you look your best.

Rule #1: Choose a thicker, heavier-weight pant. Try heavy cotton or denim.

Rule #2: Do what the fashion models do and go up a size. I promise this will add a slimming effect and you won’t look stuffed into your pants.


Rule #3: Choose flat panel pants. You don’t need a lot of extra draw strings and pockets.  Avoid zippers if you can.

Rule #4: Wear a bright top and fashionable jewelry. This will take the focus away from the white pants.

Rule #5: Think “wide over skinny.” A wide top over skinny jeans is very slimming.

Rule #6: Shoes matter! Wear a heel or pointy toe if you can. Try metallic, nude, or white.

    I have one pair of white jeans downstairs. Time to grab the other white slacks and hope! No heels, I can’t walk in them, but maybe new sandals! Thanks for the reminder.

    White jeans are perfect, MM. Add a pair of sandals in a nude color or white and you’re good to go.


  8. Josie says:

    Navy tops go great with white pants. Experiment with other bright color tops, also. Coral and turquoise are trendy summer essentials.

    Good idea, Linda. I use the one size larger approach because tight white pants wouldn’t be at all flattering for me.
