Some people might think wearing a white shirt with white pants is wearing too much white. But it’s done often enough. And the combination usually stands out in a classically stylish way. Yet, even while they can see with their own eyes that a white shirt with white pants makes for a nice outfit combination, there are people who would still shy away from the look. This is probably because wearing all white makes you more noticeable. You’re definitely going to stand our more when wearing a white shirt with white pants than when wearing a white shirt with blue jeans. So people who don’t like to draw attention to themselves might avoid white on white outfits.

Also people who fear getting themselves dirty and being caught out in public with stains on their clothes tend to avoid wearing white altogether. Because it’s harder to avoid getting white clothes dirty.

The Question: Can you wear a white shirt with white pants?

Try to look for inspiration from people who have a similar body type to your own so you can get a better idea of what might work and what might not work. Sometimes we want to wear something because we like the way it looks on someone else; but it might not be a suitable choice for us. Wearing the right style can heighten your confidence. On the other hand wearing the wrong style will lower your confidence.
