Did you miss me? I apologize for not posting a Tips & Tricks last Tuesday. I had family visiting and family always takes precedence. Now, on with the show... or rather, no show. I love white pants. I love white pants for women and for men. Linen, denim, cotton, you name it. I love them all. Few things instantly scream summer like a well fitting pair of 'em. But 'oy! I have seen some horrible underwear choices this summer. Folks, if I want to see people's underwear there are websites for that! So I would like to clear up any confusion.
The key to underwear for white or light colored pants: FLESH TONED UNDERWEAR.
If you're fair skinned wear a nude color, if your skin is a dark tone then choose a brown tone. Here are some options.
For men (quite the conundrum, right? ) Unless your name is Gino and you're cruising the Amalfi Coast, please do not wear a thong. It's just disturbing. Here's what to buy (click on the pic for link):
Not comfortable with the idea of these underwear? Next best thing are white boxer-briefs or boxers. But make sure they are not see-through in any way.
For her: the only answer is flesh tone. You can certainly wear a flesh tone thong, but if you are looking for a smooth (i.e. no cellulite) look then I recommend a smoothing underwear like Spanx or these seamless gems from Soma (click on pic for link).
Notice I did not say black thong, pink bikini or white. Flesh tone is the only way to go.
