Introduction:For most of us, it is a good idea never to wear white pants. White pants can look trim and cool, summery, and delightful on some women, but on most of us? Not so much. Be smart. Never wear white pants.
Wear white pants and you may look twice as wide as you really are. Hip, tummy, and rear view issues are magnified ten-fold with white pants stretched over them. White can be a glaring shade that is quite unforgiving.
Have you noticed that white is a smudge, spot, and spill magnet? Well, it is. Your pasta with tomato knows you are wearing white pants and will drop right on your lap on purpose. The day you wear white pants, that soft, tender grass will be perfect to sit on. Yes, grass stains are inevitable. When you wear white pants, any nearby mud is almost guaranteed to be the especially splushy-splashy type.
The opacity of something refers to whether you can see through it or not. Unfortunately, many pairs of white pants are not opaque enough. Perhaps when you tried them on in the dressing room, a trick of the light assured you they were fine, and that no undergarments showed at all. Keep in mind that you may have been fooled. Never wear white pants.
Bleach is a great big reason never to buy or wear white pants. Chlorine bleach is notorious for spilling in the laundry area and ruining your other clothes or eating a hole in your new $75 white pants. The non-chlorine bleaches work fairly well, and aren't quite as dangerous, but you need to remember to stay stocked with the product,and it is surprisingly expensive. Plus, you have to wash your white pants with bleach after every wearing because of their spot magnet properties.
Never wear white pants if you have a shadow of a doubt, because white pants are noticed. White pants are a fashion statement. If you accidentally wear white pants that are too tight (Yikes!), too loose (Dumpy!), too short, or too long, you can look completely out of style. Then, of course, there's the whole before or after Memorial Day issue, and/or winter white conundrum. Avoid the whole fashion "don't" trap, and just never wear white pants.
I know, I know, some slender women can wear white pants gracefully, cleanly, and modestly. I can't, so I'll never wear white pants. It's just best all the way around if I don't.
All excellent reasons! Good list. High 5!
Superb! I am big enough... do not need white pants to make me bigger and they do get awfully dirty.
I wouldn't even CONSIDER wearing a white shirt around here! Good list.
I have eight dogs ... if I had a pair of white pants, I would only wear them when off sans dogs staying in a motel, lol! Creative list ... h5!
See? Just read Virginia's comment. I'm telling you: never wear white pants!
It's a big no-no to wipe your hands on your white slacks when you thought you had a napkin in your lap. That made a funny anniversary story after it happened to me and my spouse (now my ex) on our anniversary dinner at a BBQ ribs place.
Great list! Lined white pants can eliminate a few of the issues you mentioned. H5
