Spring styles need to be versatile and fun, especially when the season hasn’t quite turned yet and we are torn between wanting to stay warm and wanting to welcome this beautiful season with light, bright, breezy colors. Sun dresses and loose, sleeveless tops are gorgeous and extremely suitable for late spring and summer, but in this unpredictable weather, other styles may prove more practical. What are they, you ask? Well, one spring wardrobe staple that certainly fits the bill is the white jean. Casual and crisp, the white jean is certainly springy and comfortable. It also goes with a wide range of outfits, making it one of the items you should definitely have in your closet RIGHT. NOW.
Need some ideas? White jeans look amazing with chambray; add some awesome accessories and a hairdo and you’ll be rocking it this spring. Coral, pastels and neutrals all pair perfectly with white as well, so you can mix and match tops of all shapes and styles to suit your needs. If it’s a bit chilly out, choose a thin sweater or cardigan in a light color to wear over your white jeans with a belt and ballet flats or ankle booties. Warm and sunny? Try a loose chiffon blouse with statement earrings for a summer-ready style. If you’ve paired your jeans with a neutral color like gray, brown or beige, add a pop of color with a light scarf, pair of shoes or jewelry. White jeans will also go well with a white blouse. Add accessories and a belt in an interesting color, or choose gold or silver accents for a classy, slightly dressier look.
A few things you need to know: white is less slimming then black or darker denim, so a cigarette-style cut will generally be more flattering than something that is skin-tight through the ankle. White also tends to be a bit more see-through, and will do less to hide imperfections. There are two easy ways to avoid any fashion faux pas: invest in a higher quality pair of jeans that are thick and strong enough to hold their shape and not be too revealing even after multiple washes, and wear underwear that is neutral in color and shape to avoid unsightly lines or awkward stripes/polka dots/other patterns peeking through the fabric.
Do you have a pair of white jeans?
