The Catwalk Approved Way To Wear Cropped White Trousers Now


With summertime whites reigning supreme, ivory frocks and pristine blouses are everywhere in sight. However, slipping into cropped white trousers is also an easy way to embrace refreshing whites and the trend of culottes. As you search for the perfect take on the trend, turn to the season’s runways to inspire your sartorial choices. Here are a few chic ways to wear white cropped pants, as spotted on the Spring/Summer 2016 catwalks.

Casual Chic

For the weekend, style your wide-legged white culottes with pale blue gingham (as seen at J. Crew). Tuck a button down blouse into your trousers, and loosely layer a second shirt over the first blouse. Next, add a rainbow striped belt, oversized black sunglasses, dangling statement earrings and a pair of gingham patterned ankle strap sandals.

Work Wear

As you prepare for another day of business, take your cues from Ralph Lauren, where monochromatic white is a chic statement look. Turn to crisp pleated white culottes, and accessorize these pressed bottoms with a semi-sheer white blouse. For a finishing touch, a lightweight collarless blazer, tan cork wedges and a coordinating leather satchel bring a polished effect.


For the evening hours, white receives a glitzy update with the addition of sequins (as spotted at Tibi). Pair your flowing and embellished culottes with a matching three quarter-sleeved blouse and nude strappy sandals, for a party-ready yet effortless look. If you’re tired of bodycon dresses, you’ll be happy to know that the airy silhouette and loose fabric will allow you to dance the night away in style!
