I’ve loved white pants since junior high. It was all about Guess straight leg jeans then. That is until I discovered the miraculous slimming power of boot cuts in college with a pair from Daryl K. I restock my whites each summer and wear them all year long! The whole no white after Labor Day thing? It’s definitely not a rule in my book. Here are the top 5 on my shopping list:
Theory Max C Bistretch Pant: I have three cotton pairs already (plus the wool version for winter) and just bought my fourth – they’re all different lengths! A couple are starting to yellow after more than ten years, so I guess they’re finally ready for retirement. At Theory for $225.
DL1961 Cindy Petite: It’s hard to find a flattering fit if you’re under 5′ 4″. The Cindy pant in milk is just what we petite Snobs need – no tailoring required. At DL1961 for $84 (from $168).
J Brand 722 Love Story: The Love Story has been a bestseller for over a decade. Throw the pant on with a pair of 6″ heels and you’ll see why – legs for days! At J Brand for $194.
DL1961 Emma: White skinny jeans can be a scary prospect. Emma was the first I ever trusted – she hides all of your flaws and slims at the same time. At DL1961 for $158.
HELMUT Helmut Lang Linen Slub Twill Cropped Pants: These casual fit linen pants get a boost of sex appeal with the cropped length and zippered sides. On Shopbop for $240.
