I don't know about you, but with Labor Day around the corner, I’ve got "wearing white" on my brain. From distressed denim to gauchos, white pants have made a major resurgence this season and for me, there is something so classy and timeless about sporting a pair of white high-waisted, wide-legged trousers.
Despite what you may think, these pants aren't just for the tall and skinny. Because the waistline is high and the legs loose, the trousers don't cling and can give vertically challenged gals a long and lean silhouette by adding extra length to your bottom half. As an added bonus, the voluminous hem at the ankle can make your waist appear narrower. Score!
As the cooler fall temperatures approach, white pants can really make a statement. After Labor Day, I will be packing up my light linen version (shown in the above photo), but you can still choose to wear this style in thicker fabrics such as stretch wool and crepe or fabrics with more structure, including corduroy or a heavier-weight cottons, to carry the style into fall, maybe even winter. Pair the pants with a knit top, such as cashmere or something with fluff, like angora or mohair, to make it particularly chic and seasonally appropriate.
