The” White” Commandments for Summer Pants…

Just about every Glamour Girl  I know embraces the well known fact that wearing basic black can make you “appear” slimmer and taller-hence the reason why we have oodles of black in our closets.

But it’s SUMMER (double Yah!) and it’s time to starting wearing all that wonderful white that’s been pushed to the back of your closet for waaaaaay to long-and I’m specifically talking about your basic white pant because not for noth’in they go with EVERYTHING! That’s the good news. The not so good news is that white pants can make you appear heavier IF you don’t abide by a few simple tried and true style rules: P.S. or as I refer to them as ….

The White Commandments:

  • Thou shalt wear white pants that are made in a fabrication that gives ample coverage: translation-if you can see through your white pants and notice any panty lines, pocket lines and/or bikini lines… get in line and buy a new pair that you can’t see thru.
  • Thou shalt wear only white pants that FIT Properly! Fit is KEY. Make sure your white pants fit you PERFECTLY. There should be no signs of pulling/stretching (aka thigh lines going horizontally) or gaping. Both issues only accentuate one’s figure flaws and I don’t think THAT’s the look that anyone is going for. Bear in mind that nobody and I do mean No BODY has a perfect figure so don’t be hard on yourself. Get a pair of white pants/jeans that fit you in the hips and thighs and if need be have the waist tailored to fit.
  • Thou Shalt keep our whites a bright white through proper care & cleaning. White can go from chic to shabby in a matter of seconds if you have a spot, splatter or sweat stains on your garment or if per chance your white has taken on a yellow tinge (from being in your closet past it’s expiration date .(This usually happens with age or dry cleaning any item one too many times). Proper cleaning and maintenance is key when keeping your whites. a beautiful bright WHITE!

The White Pants Commandments!

White seems to make everything so easy. You can pair a white pant with any color top and presto you’re good to go! But not so fast… one must review what people will be looking at in your rear view.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words so I am posting three to get my point across.

I am a fan of the white pant but please I’m begging you adhere to:

The White Commandments:

I.  Thou shalt wear white pants that are made in a fabrication that gives ample coverage: translation-if you can see through your white pants and notice any panty lines, pocket lines and/or bikini lines… get in line and buy a new pair that you can’t see thru.

No see thru for you!

Too see thru for you!

II. Thou shalt wear white pants that fit properly. Never attempting to wear white pants that pull at the crotch, dip at the waist or pucker in any other private area. That’s why their called private in the first place.

 

Too tight is not right!

Too tight is not right!

III. If white pants have spots of any kind in any place whatsoever-abort white pants immediately.
I'm seeing spots!

Spots would actually be an improvement.
