I personally love a crisp pair of white shorts in the summer but it wasn't until I went to a baseball game last week with some friends I started having some reservations about them.
At the Nationals game last Friday, we saw several girls wearing white shorts but with dark underwear and the guys in our group couldn't help but point them out in the crowd. While I mostly remained silent on the matter, I do think it's a good idea to check not only opacity of your shorts, but also the underwear you're wearing! It goes back to my post on propriety - I don't think it's a good idea to enforce dress codes but the girls at the game didn't strike me as those who meant for their undergarments to be on display. A good rule of thumb is to just wear flesh-colored underwear when wearing white to avoid any fashion mishaps. That's what I did with this outfit! Flesh colored undergarments all around!
What are your thoughts on appropriate underwear?
