I’m sure my opinion on this matter is obvious to all my fellow Magpies, but — yes, you can you wear white pants in the spring. You can wear white pants in fall and winter, too. But I have to say I am especially enjoying leaning into early spring by wearing white and ecru pants/jeans I love, and I’ve also been adding some new options to my repertoire. I am especially in love with this ecru pair from Madewell, but I find that this particular “line” of jeans (The Perfect Vintage) runs large such that I typically take a size down from my true size, and they’ve curiously sold out of only the size I need. I’m contemplating buying my true size and seeing if they still work. I did order these Gap ones (as you know, own and adore them in the black — run TTS) and these cream Apiece Apart pants I’d been eyeing forever. Below, a mood board for styling ecru/white in transitional weather —
You’ll see mainly wide leg crops and boot cut crops below because those are the silhouettes I’m gravitating towards, but I think this pair from SLVRLAKE could be SO cool on someone taller than I am. Also, a note: these Rolla’s are SO cute with the patch pockets (and the price is right!) but I will note they run slightly big and will need to be hemmed if you are a shortie like me. (I tried them on in pink a few weeks ago.)

I love pairing white jeans with a simple striped or solid tee, Chanel ballet flats, and oversized sunglasses as an easy weekday uniform — it just always feels polished and pulled-together. But I also plan on pairing with my striped cotton La Ligne sweaters and boho/patterned tops like the ones from Mille and Marea. Would also be cute for morning drop off with an Alice Walk sweatshirt and cool sneaks!
P.S. Chic everyday tops under $130.
