We're coming into the season for white denim and I want you to feel confident when wearing white jeans. I've put together of list of 6 requirements for your best pair. Use these tips and you'll be able to embrace white jeans with effortless style!
#1 Choose a thicker material
The quality of the material makes all the difference! You’re looking for:
Nothing sheer - no matter the color of your “white” pants, like ecru or ivory, etc.
At least 95% stretch - this will help it not to pull or pucker
“Hidden” pockets - you should not be able to see the lining of the pocket through your pants
#2 Nothing too tight or too baggy
If they’re puckering on your backside, you might want to go up a size!
When you are trying on white jeans, and you have to overthink it in the dressing room, they’re probably NOT the best for you.
#3 The perfect style
The style of jean that’s perfect for a white jean is straight-leg. Try a mid to high-rise (to keep everything tucked in a bit). A classic straight or wide leg denim in white is something you can pull out season after season.
#4 Check your underwear(because we don’t want to see it)
You absolutely want to be sure you won’t be able to see any panty lines if you’re wearing a skin tone, simple boyshort, like Soma’s vanishing boy short.
#5 Show a little skin at the ankle = show a little skin at the forearm
If you’re going to wear white jeans, and you are wearing a shoe where you can see your ankle, I want you to show your forearm as well. If you’re wearing a blazer, just push up your sleeves!
#6 Wear your shirt out
When you are wearing white denim, I want you to wear your shirt out. Do you always have to do that? No, but it’s a classier option. We won’t see your belly and it looks more elegant.
When you are shopping for white denim, keep these tips in mind - You are going to look fabulous!
