White pants season is upon us, but they can be tricky to pull off if you haven’t been dieting for the last 8 months (who has?). Because we care, we’ve compiled the basic rules for wearing white jeans in the most flattering way possible:
Buy a pair with flare and stretch:
You will love these Hudson Jeans Stretch Twill Bootcut pants ($154) – the flare style elongates legs and the stretch is forgiving, if you’ve had a bad food day (or week).
We prefer a camel colored sandal with a wooden sole like these Jessica Simpson ‘Gody’ sandals ($59.50). Wearing a heel is another way to make legs look thinner – trust me on this one.
Pair with a long tank or tee:
A good rule of thumb for both leggings and white jeans (no matter how bangin’ your body is) is to pair them with a shirt that goes a few inches past the hips. Long shirts like this slimming V-Neck Solid tee ($26.50) create a lean silhouette.
Wear a seamless, nude thong:
The last thing you want is the unflattering butt bulge or double butt cheeks (much like quadra-boob for ill-fitting bras) that comes from granny panties. Always go with a nude thong like this Hanro Touch Feeling thong ($42). If you have white jeans if your closet – you need this thong.
