I’ve gone the past 20 years of my life without a pair of white jeans. I know, bad. I’ll admit I was afraid of them and their unflattering effects on my lower body. After breaking my own rules and buying two pairs of colored jeans recently, I decided it was time.
Per usual, I quickly made a friend in a new Nordstrom department, who selected every white jean on the floor for me to try on. We settled on this great pair of Citizens, although I will acknowledge that Paige also makes a great skinny leg pant. Ultimately, I picked the cropped Citizens because they’re easier to roll up (I dont think I have abnormally large calves but I always feel like my circulation is being cut off when I roll jeans). If you’re taller than 5’5.5″ you should be good with the Paige.
Today I’m wearing this Rubbish Sweater with dark jeans and flats, because its a mere 55 degrees this morning, but I’m anxious to pair it with my virgin pair of white jeans.
When selecting a white jean, keep in mind that you should splurge for a jean that fits better than settling for a cheap one that looks average. It’s no secret that white shows all, and ultimately, you wont reach for a jean that doesnt look good no matter how cheap it was. When in doubt, pair a white jean with a belted tunic or longer top to hide any unmentionables and create the classic hourglass.
Wishing you the most luck with white this season ~ carry tide to go!
