It is SUMMER! Rejoice! Who doesn’t love Summer? It is the season of blue skies, longer evenings, softer fabrics, brighter colours and white jeans. White pants are criminally underused and underrated by most Men! This is partly due to the fact they can be a tricky style to pull off, BUT, never fear FASHIONABLE FRANK is here with two stylish ensembles to ease you into the white pants phenomenon. Whether you are at home or on holiday these outfits will ensure you look GREAT!
When coming up with outfit ideas for my white jeans I decided to go with a day to night theme. White is an incredibly versatile colour to work with and most colours will go well with this neutral tone, in particular other opposing block colours. It is Summer so think of softer pastel shades or louder bolder colours and combine these with white. Pink used to considered an adventurous colour in menswear. Join Fashionable Frank in making white the new pink!

WHITE JEANS DURING THE DAY
When styling the white jeans for the day time I decided to stick with a coloured t-shirt. Block colour tee’s are everywhere and are relatively cheap (mine is from River Island). The t-shirt is a block colour contrast. Both colour are light in appearance and capture Summer perfectly! Now who’s joining me in Monte Carlo?!
My second outfit choice is simply choosing a different coloured and more relaxed fit t-shirt. Yellow isn’t just for ties or pocket squares guys, yellow is a great Summer colour to work with! Especially if you have dark hair. The relaxed fit of the yellow t-shirt (mine is from primark for only €3!) works well with the tight fitting jeans. Yellow and white look great together. This outfit screams Summer!
WHITE JEANS AT NIGHT
For night time we need to smarten the looks up! Step forward my favourite piece in Menswear, a Blazer! I am obsessed with Blazers! Adding a lightweight Summer Blazer (mine is from Zara) completes the smarter look for night time whether you are at home or on holiday.
My second choice of outfit works really well with a Blazer too. Yellow and navy are a great combination colour wise and provide a bold contrast with the white jeans. Now all you need is a coloured cocktail!
MY TOP TIP
Go for colours that complement the Blazer. White is a great colour to work with as it is a neutral colour (what are neutral colours? find out with my post on how to wear neutrals) and will go well with most other colours. The Blazer and coloured t-shirt combo needs a bit more work. My Top Tip is to contrast! Pick your Blazer and coloured t-shirt combination first. Opt for stripes with your blazer for a Nautical inspired look.
