Most women stick to black pants as it’s indeed practical and can even slenderize your figure while keeping you look chic and elegant. White pants, whether in denim or chiffon fabric, can also make your street style chic and luxurious. But, as chic and classic as they are, white pants do come with some anxiety attached as the wrong pair of white pants can make you look heavier. So, keep on scrolling for our stylish tricks to look slimmer in white pants.
If you’re bottom heavy, better opt for a straight, but not tight-leg style of pants. You may go for a style that hangs straight from the hip, like a trouser-style pant, or even a slight boot-cut style that balances out heavier hips and thighs in a way that slimmer leg cuts just can’t do. Skip those cuffed pants of any type as it will naturally break the visual line of pants. White palazzo pants in a dreamy chiffon or gauze sound romantic and summery, but pockets tend to make you look bulkier, so look for styles that have thick enough fabric that the pockets will not show the reality is that they will make you look heavy. Heavy cotton twills or cotton stretch blends won’t show every lump and bump you’re hiding.
White pants can be dressed up easily with an eye-catching top. Pair your white pants with a top that attracts attention like a sexy off-shoulder top, ruffled or sequin top, printed top, or even a top in a bright color. Graphic prints like horizontal stripes and bold floral are another eye-catching patterns to draw the eye up. White is a great neutral, and if you go with tops that draw the eye up, the bottoms will fade into the background.
If you’re not a fan of bright colors and loud prints, you may go for a tunic or draped top to completely eliminate the problem of bulging skin or pockets you can see. A longer top like a knitted sweater, a button-down shirt, or a loose blouse paired with white pants skims right over the problem areas and gives you a sleek look.
If you’re planning to go for an all-white outfit, a structured coat in dark shades will help you look slimmer as its lapels will add some vertical silhouette to your outfit, therefore making you look slimmer. Just leave you coats and blazers unbuttoned or unzipped to achieve the desired look. If you have a slim waist like fashion blogger Micah Gianneli, dare to wear a crop top with your white pants and top your outfit with a structured coat that balances the look.
Elongate your legs by wearing heels and you’ll instantly look slimmer, even white pants. Heels like rope-trimmed wedges to kitten heels are great. But, creating a low contrast between your shoes and pants will create a taller frame visually. So, like Micah Gianneli, better opt for white chunky heels to wear with your white pants to create a longer leg line. Wearing non-platform high heels with long white pants will also give the illusion of longer legs while the pants hemline hides your heels making you look taller and leaner.
Indeed, white pants are fashionable and elegant choice for a sophisticated and chic fashion style.
