Best Outfit Combination for White Pants/Chinos

White pants (chinos, or maybe jeans) can be a little intimidating. They don’t feel like a beginner’s move. And a few things are guaranteed to happen while wearing white pants. Someone will absolutely say: “nice pants!” and you’ll also get them a little dirty. Somehow. And you’ll then wonder if everyone is noticing that smudge on your otherwise pristine chinos.

The good news is that they won’t notice any small blemishes. Also good news? White pants are easier to wear than you think. Here’s the proof. But first, some affordable suggestions:

  1. With a Denim Shirt and Sneakers

  • Shirt: ₦6000
  • Belt: ₦4000
  • Chinos: ₦7000
  • Watch: ₦5000
  • Sneakers: ₦15000
  • Sunglasses: ₦6000

This is often regarded as business casual, but interesting business casual. The contrast between the shirt and pants are high, with the deep, warm brown suede belt acting as a border between the two.

  1. With A Light Grey Blazer & Loafers

A quite cool looking outfit. Downright dashing, without crossing the line into a pretentious playboy. The light colors and lightweight, unstructured/unlined jacket should help you keep looking.

A perfect casual, but not frumpy or sloppy look for when temps start to heat up. Those suede shoes complement the outfit in style.

  1. With a Blazer, layered, once it starts to cool off a little

  • Blazer: ₦15000
  • Shirt: ₦6000
  • Sweater: ₦6000
  • Chinos: ₦7000
  • Shoes: ₦25000
  • Watch: ₦5000
  • Belt: ₦4000

Preppy for sure. Too preppy for some. And that’s just fine if it’s not your thing. Something to wear on an unusually cool day.

  1. With a lightweight, light blue or grey Blazer over a Dark Polo

  • Blazer: ₦15000
  • Polo: ₦8000
  • Pants: ₦7000
  • Belt: ₦4000
  • Shoes: ₦25000
  • Watch: ₦6000

Yes, you can wear a polo with a blazer. And with as laid back as this blazer is, it’s super easy to pair with some equally breezy linen blend pants, and some cool-toned grey lace-ups. Those linen pants aren’t a bright, pure white here, but instead a “stone” that’s slightly off white. No matter, they’re close enough for this experiment.

Pro Tip: When wearing white chinos/pants, wear underwear that’s a close match to your natural skin tone. Grays seem to work for fellas with a lighter skin tone. Failure to do so will leave you with contrasting lines where your underwear starts and stops.
