What To Wear With: The Dreaded White Jeans
April 27, 2009
Don’t be afraid of white jeans this spring – I promise, those larger than a size four can pull off this trend. Just hear me out.
The type of jeans you buy is important. Find a slim-fitting pair ($154) that hits at the ankle. Anything longer will start to bunch and look messy (and will also get really dirty).
Now the true secret to wearing the white jean – even for the skinny folk – is in the butt-covering tunic. I have a closet full of long loose shirts I wear with leggings, and now white jeans, that instantly make my legs look longer and leaner because they cover the rear and don’t cling to the hips. Choose a summery print or plaid ($23) to complement the white and battle the leftover April breezes by layering with a crop-sleeve jacket ($175).
Have fun with your shoes and opt for a wedge in a bold color or metallic ($83). Finally, keep it casual with some understated bracelets ($58) and a pendant necklace ($92), and stash your stuff in a lightweight printed tote ($12.60).
