White pants usually are a staple of a woman's wardrobe. The trends or types of white pants might change yearly, but are always wardrobe must-haves.. When wearing white pants, make sure you are aware of those pretty little undergarments. Sometimes women are not conscious of the dreaded visible panty line, otherwise known as the VPL. White pants leave nothing to the imagination, not even panty lines.

White under White

According to "Oprah" magazine, "It's a myth that white panties disappear under white pants." Most women feel as long as they wear a pair of white panties under their white pants, everything will be covered. White panties can be a problem as they don't blend in as much as you would think. White panties can especially enhance visible panty lines, ripples under your pants and let's not forget the actual visual of your shiny white panties. White can be and usually is see-through. If you are wearing white panties under white pants, then you really aren't covering much. This can turn into a fashion disaster.

Bare it All?

Some of you not-so-shy divas hate wearing undies. You feel you can bare it all underneath anything. Ladies, please be aware of what you are wearing. If you have white pants on and nothing underneath, we will be able to see everything you thought you were trying to hide. Imagine if you were on the red carpet and those camera bulbs start flashing. Guess who will be on the front of the tabloid the next day? That's not the type of attention you want.

What Colors Work for White Pants?

The editors at "Oprah" magazine say "Only nudes will do." Choose a nude tone that is close to your own skin tone. Nude, beige or a sandy color normally will do the trick. You also can purchase undergarments in a flesh color. Stay away from bright colors, whether they're thongs or full-coverage panties. Not everyone wants to see your pink, purple or yellow polka-dotted undies.

It's All about Style

A nude thong, preferably seamless, is the best way to go when wearing white pants. A full panty can show a lot more than a thong if you aren't careful with the style. Those who are not comfortable wearing a thong can opt for a full panty or even a body shaper, otherwise known as shapewear. Just make sure it is nude or flesh-colored.
