White Pants

There's a population out there who believe that no matter what top you wear with them, white pants are as dressy as you can get. And I am here to tell you that white pants are a product of Lucifer.

The only white I have worn below my waist in the last 39.5 years has been socks or underwear. I dislike white pants - be them jeans, slacks, trousers, etc. - on just about everyone. I seriously think nobody looks good in them. And said population seems to think that any shirt or blouse is acceptable to wear with them, regardless of colour and fabric.

Now, I am no fashion icon. My usual attire is cargo pants and a polo from Old Navy, so I am not preaching that which I do not know. What I DO know is that nobody should ever leave the house looking like the woman in the picture. Even if those pants were another colour, it would still look bad - the white just makes it worse. I'm not digging (ha, ha) on her for being "cheeky", but I am commenting that white pants show every speck of dirt, and as evidenced here, ever fold, crease, bump and pouch.

Just say NO!


  1. I can't imagine.

  2. GQ had an article recently about the comeback of white jeans. Holy Hell indeed.

  3. White pants and skinny jeans. Two of the WORST fashion fads/faux pas around! Wrong on so many levels...

  4. Two words: An Officer and a Gentleman

    (OK, that's really like 37 words. But Richard Gere in those white pants? Woof.)

  5. Years ago, I owned a pair of white pants. They made me look like a sailor.

    'Nuff said.

  6. So... You wouldn't even sport a pair of white CAPRIS?
