Why white pants are a wardrobe staple

Crisp white jeans or chinos can take you almost anywhere.

Think your white pants are only for casual summer days? Think again.

I’ve styled white chinos for four different types of occasions to demonstrate their versatility – proving a pair of crisp white pants or jeans is a solid investment even during the cooler months.

Layering in greys to soften a stark white plus these grey woollies blend in an irresistible texture that makes your white pants truly trans-seasonal.

Shopping day: Pack a long-line grey or black cardigan or pair this outfit with your reliable white trainers if you’re really pounding the pavement for a big day out!
