Clothed with Grace: White Jeans Three Ways

White Jeans Three Ways

In super exciting news I was one of five winners in April's Thrift Store Runway Challenge, check out the other winners here.

Also, I had the opportunity to guest post at Midwest Style Bloggers and wanted to share the post with you all too.

 White jeans are all the rage right now, but knowing how to wear them isn't always easy, here are few things to keep in mind when choosing to wear white.

1.  Fit is key.  Try on several pair before buying.  Skimmers are a big trend right now, but other styles are available. Bootcut or flare might be more flattering on you, and you'll ultimately look better in a style that fits your body type.  Shape Magazine has a great article detailing this. Here's some of the basics:
  • Athletic- The flared jeans silhouette makes your legs look longer and leaner while accentuating your waist.
  • Curvy, Tall, or Petite- Bootcut will give you a sleek silhouette.
  • Boyish- Skinnys will make you look more shapely than you are.
  • Apple- Jeggings are the pant for you, they'll show off your great legs without pinching your waist.
 2.  Cost can make a difference, these jeans can be an investment piece you'll wear for years.                    Consider the quality when purchasing. Is the denim going to stretch within a half hour of wearing them, then fit incorrectly?  Sometimes spending more can pay off.

3.  White is a great neutral and almost anything can go with it! I've put together some great looks to suit almost any occasion.

  4. I will take all of these outfits please ;) I don't own a pair yet, I have had a hard time finding ones that flatter me rather than show off my thighs a bit too much!

  9. Great post with great tips! I recently had to return the white pants I just purchased because they were too big when I went to wear them (even though I know I tried them on before buying them!) And I'm super bummed because they were perfect and of course they didn't have the next size down when I exchanged them. So I'm on a cautious hunt to replace them.

  14. First of all, congrats on winning the challenge!! I've been going back and forth on whether or not I should try white pants. They seem so versatile and classy! Ever since I had my baby, I get so nervous about wearing light colors ..hahahha..they'll end up stained with baby vomit or poop or [insert baby body fluid here]. I think those white skinny jeans are so beautiful though!

  21. I adore white jeans. I've owned a pair since I was in college, all different styles. Now that I'm getting older I'm finding the more sophisticated ones are keys. Love the looks. :)
