What To Wear

White Hot Pants

In case you missed the memo, it’s white pants season! And although there are no shortage of options when you hit the racks, finding a super-flattering pair, can pose a challenge.

Everyone knows you can’t hide much when you’re wearing white. Make sure the fabric is thick enough—a.k.a. the colour of your underthings must remain a mystery. To be sure, find a bright spot in the fitting room and give the bottoms a full once over when you have them on.

Some stylists even recommend trying a size up, because when white pants are less tight, they can also be more forgiving in terms of what they are showing off.

Bottom line…try on many pairs, and maybe even bring a fash friend for an honest opinion.

Here are three white hot pairs that we’ve been eyeing:


Dynamite Karlie Linen Culotte Pant, $50: Easy breezy, these wide-leg culottes in a light linen fabric give that extra breathing room without compromising style.


Alice + Olivia Dylan High Waisted Leg Pants, $397: A classic flared trouser looks crisp and polished, especially when worn with a brightly coloured top—tucked in, of course.


Good American Good Legs Crop Cascade Hem, $196: The frayed-edge, cascade hem on this leg-hugging jean is hard-to-miss.
