First and foremost, you need to wear white pants with a dignity. More precisely, any men’s trousers should be worn with dignity especially white, because it is not just pants it is a style of life and status.
If you wear white pants then you have a marvelous life and there is spring outside or maybe even summer. White pants are not made to wear to work and if you wear them to work that means your job is a pipe dream for the most people. The main time for the white men’s trousers is walks and recreation.
What you should wear white pants with?
Blue color is the perfect combination for all white clothing and for white pants, in particular. Since white trousers are worn only when it is warm and sunny, it is reasonable to speak only of summer clothes: T-shirts and at least jackets.
The blue jacket or rather a blue blazer should be the only blue part in blue-and-white combination, otherwise it will be too much and the general appearance will not be as bright as we would like it to be. There is never too much of white so white trousers and a shirt (T-shirt) and blue blazer will be a good decision.
In general a combination of two colors – blue and white with three basic things of male wardrobe: pants, shirt, blazer, always gives an excellent result. The colors also may be swapped around, a combination of blue bottom and white top makes your look more business-like.
White pants are perfectly combined with a striped top especially with the blue-and-white T-shirt or sweater. In addition, beige, sand and gray colors are also the perfect idea. In this case the combination will be less contrast and more relaxing.
I would advise to wear brown loafers or top-siders barefoot with the white pants. As warm season and informal atmosphere let you do it. In fact, the color of shoes does not play a special role and instead of the brown shoes you can easily wear blue shoes. Black shoes are probably too dark. The brightness of the shoes should match the brightness of the upper part of the look. If there is a blue shirt or a jacket on top then it’s better to wear beige topsiders. The darker blazer you wear the darker loafers you have to choose (but avoid black color).
Shorts are the same pants but short, obviously. Shorts are no longer considered as something which is not serious, appropriate only for a beach, especially the white ones. All that I have said about white trousers is absolutely relevant and applicable in respect of the white shorts, perhaps with the exception of shoes. Probably brown loafers won’t be the best option and you’d better wear top-siders.
Spring 2015 has already come and in a month or even less it will become a real spring. Soon the question of what to wear for a walk or to the cafe will become more relevant than ever before. Now you know what is better to wear with the white pants and you still have left enough time to find your ideal combination of the white pants or shorts.
