When to Wear White: Whenever You Want

The old-school rule that you can only wear white pants after Memorial Day and before Labor Day is OUT! So go get your white jeans or crisp, white dress pants and start wearing them now. White pants tend to scare a lot of people—me included. I recently bought a pair of white skinny jeans that I love, but I’m so nervous to wear them. You have to worry about spills, sitting on anything dirty and washing them in general. But then my friend gave me a genius idea that put me at ease: an emergency white-pants kit.

Here’s my emergency white-pants kit:

  • Shout Wipes, perfect for quickly cleaning spills.
  • Clorox Bleach Pen Gel, for bleaching away stains (just make sure that your jeans are pure white).
  • Tide to Go, another tool for quickly cleaning stains, even grease. This works for fabrics of all colors!
  • Kleenex tissues, for wiping off seats before sitting down.
  • A blanket (optional, if you plan to be outdoors).

With this kit on hand and the ancient wearing-white time frame out the window, I’ll be reaching for my white pants a lot more often! How about you? Do you have a fashion-emergency kit that you carry in your purse? What’s in it? Share with us in the comments.

  1. I am thankful for this article because I too get nervous about wearing white pants. I’m sitting there thinking, “What if I sit on something, spill something, or get dirt on me?” Well, now I don’t have to worry about that thanks to this article. Thank you guys!

  2. Hi LaVonne,
    Each store will carry different items. I know the the store near me has similar jackets. The utility jacket goes with everything and is season-less.

    Selena, the jeans are Gap jeans!

  3. Do you carry the jacket, if so how much $?. I love wearing white especially in Florida.
