How to Wear White Pants For Fall

In fact, they’re the perfect bottom when the weather is still a bit warm and/or oscillating between Summer and Winter.

White pants for Fall may not seem like an obvious choice what with the whole “no white after Labor Day” thing, which, to me, is totally bogus. I mean, come on, have you ever heard of Winter whites?! Yes, we’re all about jeans and casual pants like corduroys this time of year, not to mention our eagerness to don heavier fabrics like leather or tweed. But white pants are not to be ignored. The key to making white pants feel right in Autumn is the pieces you style with them, and an obvious top contender is, of course, the sweater. 

More playful than a simple black sweater but not overly bold, this striped crewneck is cut from a midweight fabric that’s super tuckable and ultracomfy when the temperature is mild. When paired with a white trouser like the high-rise paperbag-waist silhouette our Content Director of Fashion and Shop Hannah Weil McKinley chose during New York Fashion Week, it’s clear that white pants not only fly for Fall, but feel super fresh alongside fun knits and sleek accessories.
