Big thanks to the amazing Jessica from Beautify My Life for writing up this fantastic post about how to wear (and how to style) your white denim!
White jeans can be scary. The prospect of sitting on/rubbing up against something dirty, plus the misconception that white is an unflattering shade, result in many women sticking to traditional darker denims. However, if you find the right pair, white denim can become a staple of your summer wardrobe.
There are two major factors to consider when shopping for white jeans: fit and opacity. Whereas dark colors camouflage lumps and bumps, the wrong pair of white pants can amplify them. Find a pair that’s fitted, but not TOO tight, and in a slightly thicker denim that won’t become see-through in the wrong light.
Once you’ve found your pair, it’s time to build some outfits. There are a million ways to go with this, but here are a few ideas to get you started.
Outfit #1: Go bright. This is stating the obvious, but white goes with everything. So if you’ve been dying to wear a brightly colored top, white jeans can be the perfect pairing. Throw on a pair of gold flats, some oversized sunglasses and earrings, and you’re set for a day of shopping.
Outfit #2: Go black. Black and white is about as classic as it gets. While white denim might not seem like an obvious choice for a night out, it can really work with the right outfit. Finish the outfit with a fierce pair of shoes and some funky jewelry (I’m really into knuckle rings right now), and grab the clutch of your choice for a pop of color, and you’ve got a surprisingly edgy outfit.
Outfit #4: Go neutral. There’s something so crisp and clean-looking about an outfit that’s all neutrals. If you’re brave enough to go for it, find a top that’s not a pure white so you have a little bit of contrast.
However you choose to wear your white denim, pay attention to your surroundings. Dirty denim is never a good look!
