Good Question: How Can I Pull Off White Jeans?

From a SheFinds Reader: What would be cute to wear with my new white jeans?

Answer:
Kudos to you for getting gutsy and jumping on one of the freshest resurrected trends of the season. Of course, the key thing you must always wear with white jeans is the right attitude. Walk tall knowing your white denims don't live up to the negative publicity of making you look wider, and laugh in the face of the inevitable spill, pen mark, or other defacing oopsie — they're bound to happen, but constantly being on the lookout will give you away as under-confident.

That said, feel lucky that you're wearing white jeans in a season of brights. While jewel and citrus tones will pop prettily against your white jeans, you can overdo it in the color department, so be aware that you don't have blend-into-the-background blue jeans to take your outfit down a notch. With that in mind, try variations on these trends, and you should be in the clear.

Boho chic:
Pick patterned tunics and flowy tops that hit about mid-hip. The busy graphics will keep the eye moving (so it won't land on that aforementioned pen mark) and will downplay the starkness white jeans can take on. Catherine Malandrino's black-and-white cami ($375) would look phenomenal with bold jewelry. The Maia tunic ($68) from Anthropologie is just the right mix of flower girl and party girl; the cobalt blue will really pop against white. And Gap's girly paisley print scoop neck tank ($44.50) is delicate and feminine. Break it up all that white with a brown belt if you really want to pull the hippie chick look off to perfection.

Pretty Preppy: You've heard of tennis whites, right? Think of your jeans as a less sporty version of the country club staple. Opt for J. Crew's smart cashmere short-sleeved sweater ($148) in ice cream colored argyle. Or go sweet and innocent with Banana Republic's periwinkle ruffle front blouse ($58). A crisp black jacket ($128) is so chic and stylish – especially when paired with contrasting white. Wear it for drinks with the ladies or out to a power lunch.

Of course, no matter which style you opt for, there's one accessory no white-jeans-wearing gal should leave home without: her nude thong. Felina's Hint of Skin G-kini (3 for $24) will ensure that you look long and lean, not lumpy.
