Blue Skies & White Jeans

White denim is the quintessential Summer jean. This versatile and staple piece is always in heavy rotation during the season for me. The reason why I love my signature white skinny jean so much is because it serves as a blank slate for any top. From a statement-making blue ruffle top or a fun t-shirt paired with eye-catching heels, achieving style perfection is not difficult with a pair of white skinnies.

A few tips when shopping for your perfect pair of white skinnies.

  • Get the size right. Pick a pair that is not too tight or clingy. White jeans should not be mistaken for leggings. They should not be too loose either, especially around the hip. The right pair should flatter and highlight your natural shape. Look for styles that are labeled “straight leg” or “boyfriend.” I am wearing the high-waisted slim fit by American Apparel.
  • Pay attention to the fabric. Plain stiff cotton with a little bit of stretch is the best choice. The fabric should also be on the thicker side and not see through. Again, it should not resemble leggings.
  • Color of the stitching. I prefer my white jean with white stitching, so the color combinations I can create are endless. If the stitching is another color make sure that it is harmonious with other color pieces in your closet.

Oh, and one last thing: toss the silly rule regarding β€œNo White after Labor Day”. Although white denim jeans are most popular during the Spring & Summer months, they look equally as fabulous during the colder seasons. So investing in a pair of white jeans is so worthwhile.

    I love how you styled the white jeans with both of those outfits!! That one shoulder ruffle top and the watermelon print tee are too cute! Also, I 100% agree with you that the “no white after labor day” rule is silly! I’m a white jeans year round type of gal too πŸ™‚
