You can combine it with every color you can name, and the best feature is the added energy and fresh white bottoms that lend to the overall look. Swap your open-toed footwear for boots underneath the white pants as the seasons change.
Wardrobe essentials mean you can create a dozen or even more looks for every event, every season, and moment in time. With key staples in your closet, you will never have to suffer a moment where you have absolutely nothing to wear. All you need is a keen eye and an open mind for mixing and matching your staples artistically.
