Risk is good for the soul. As it happens, it's also good for your outfit. A summer essential and arguably the riskiest part of any wardrobe, white pants are only for the brave. While they offer a lightening touch to your seasonal ensembles, providing the perfect blank backdrop for colorful shirts and sneakers, white pants make park trips near on impossible. Barbecues are off the agenda, and activities must be conducted with a kind of superhuman cleanliness.

If you’ve weighed up the risks and rewards and deemed that a pair of white pants is still on your summer shopping list, then pay attention because we made this judgment, too. Highsnobiety curators have thrown caution to the wind, ignoring images of tomato sauce-splattered white pants, to offer a roundup of the season’s best clean bottoms. From Dickies workwear to Jacquemus' French luxury, these selections aim to rove that white pants are worth the effort, and the payoff for your cleanliness is huge.
