Since it's Tuesday I guess I could have called this "Try it Tuesday" or "Tuesdays are for trying" but, no. If you know me very well you know that for me personally, I do not like white pants. I have thought of maybe trying a white jean and quickly talked myself out of that. I have always been opposed to white pants for sure. I can't fully explain why I don't like them perhaps a little "ice-cream man"? For me there is such a fine line between the pants looking cute and going over to the frumpy side - which I cannot take. When I am helping a client I try not to let my own style preferences carry over into helping them discover their style. The white pant issue is no exception. I have assisted with many a cute combination using a white bottom, all the while avoiding ever adding it my own closet.
Until now... A few days ago I posted a picture of a recent haul from White House Black Market. In that pic was a pair of white pants. It's taken several days for me to even try them on again but today I did. I am wearing them today paired with a loose fitting multi-colored tshirt. The pants are very lightweight cotton with lots of seaming details and even a couple of zippers. I purchased them for 3 reasons really: 1) they were on sale 2) they are lightweight and it's the hottest week of the year here and I don't like shorts 3) sometimes I feel like you need to branch out. So here we are - with me wearing white pants. I have gone between feeling okay and feeling borderline frumpy so I will see how the day plays out. I will try them a couple of different times, worn a couple of different ways to give them a fair shot.
Which camp are you in???? Do you wear white pants ?? No Way!! or Yaass girl!! Let me know your thoughts.
