While white is often associated with an enchanting bridal number or a summer maxi dress, our EIC Rachel Zoe’s mantra is, “Wear white all year round—yes, even after Labor Day. There’s no better way to feel instantly polished.” We’re listening. Crisp white pants are a versatile closet staple that seamlessly transitions from desk to drinks. Whether you opt for a slim cigarette fit, wide-leg culottes or classic flares, they’re more unexpected than traditional black and can be styled endlessly ways with items you already own. Here, three simple ensembles all anchored by white trousers to inspire you.
Wear them with: a bold colorful button-down blouse and sleek pointed-toe pumps.
Wear them with: a leather blazer, a silk camisole and classic pumps.
Wear them with: an oversize blazer, a slim cashmere turtleneck and your go-to booties.
