If you are anything like me, you probably avoid white pants like the plague. I find them quite intimidating and gratingly high maintenance. You need to wear the right underclothing, and you need to be conscious of how and where you are sitting. They have to be kept pristine at all times, which is sometimes hard to do if you are the klutzy type like me.
But after seeing Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel don a white-on-white ensemble for an appearance at The Grove, I’ve been itching to wear something exactly like it.

Can you blame me? It’s a look that screams “fresh”! Granted that she is a leggy supermodel who can probably make a flour sack look chic and fashionable, but this ensemble seems like something even I can pull off.
It has an effortless and a no-brainer vibe to it — the kind of outfit that will make you secretly snicker behind your palms because you didn’t even spend hours standing in front of your mirror debating whether it looks right.
All you need is a simple white tee banded at the hem just like what Candice wore and a pair of high-waist tapered white pants. Accessorize with ankle-strapped sandals and a pair of sunnies. So easy but so chic!
Okay, so if you are already plotting to give this look a go this spring and summer (you must!), check out these coordinates:
J Brand Ready-to-Wear Fontaine Trousers, $495
Theysken’s Theory Belcor Fliners Blouse, $345
Elizabeth and James Toni Slim Strappy Sandals, $298
CC Skye Mini Spike Bracelet, $125
Gorjana Teagan Cuff, $110
I haven’t been able to find tops similar to Candice’s, but you can get the look by tucking the top in your high-waist pants. Not exactly the same but just as cute.
