Flesh Colored Undergarments | Striped Peplum and White Shorts

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?

  1. :a
    That plum top is super cute!!! I totally agree on the flesh underwear, though my biggest concern with white pants is that they get dirty super easy! :(



  2. I don't own a pair of flesh coloured underwear!! I also don't have shorts in that colour...but I should probably get on that. Your outfit is so cute!

    Something About That

  3. Yes, white shorts forever give me a fear of being too see-through! You look absolutely adorable though. Especially love the pop of colour!


  4. F21 bag doesnt look like its from F21looks more expensive ^^ i always wear beige undies with whitebottoms in fear ofbeing in that situation :D which is also why i have more blackbottoms vs white
