Happy Wednesday ladies. After several weeks of experimenting with color, I have a confession to make and I’m diving back into a few black and white outfits. White and black may not be the most fun or uplifting combination but there’s no question it’s easy and you always look chic wearing it.
I love the slimming effect we get from a column of color so I started with head to ankle white and topped it with this white and black floral topper that my friends at Chico’s sent to me. It does have a one-button closure but it’s not the sort of jacket I would ever do up. It has very long cuffs that I decided to fold up to help offset the length.
The shoes are years old. I wear them sparingly so they won’t wear out. The block heel makes them stable but more importantly, I used my favorite alteration hack to improve their comfort.
These jeans are a high-rise, no-stain skinny style. Several of you have mentioned that you avoid wearing white because it gets grimy so easily. I admit that jeans can be a magnet for spills so the technology of this stain-repel fabric is petty ingenious. They’re available in regular and petite. I’m wearing the regular because the petites have a shorter rise. That wouldn’t matter for most people but with my long torso, every little bit makes a difference and I find the higher the waistband, the less muffin top there is.
I have a confession to make. With the shape of jeans changing, my love for the skinny is fading. There, I’ve said it. That’ll sound like sacrilege to many women and it’s not as though I’m calling them the 2021 version of “mom” jeans, but they feel dated to me. My wardrobe is filled with them and I know I’ll continue to wear them, but right now, they simply don’t feel as modern as straight or slim jeans.
I switched out those skinny jeans for these no-stain slim girlfriend jeans and find them infinitely comfier. Needing to adjust or fuss with my clothes is a pain. Even with my slim legs, skinny jeans always bunch around my calves and feel like they need to be tugged down or smoothed whenever I sit or bend. Slim or straight don’t do that so they’re easier to wear.
These have the same no-stain technology, a slim look plus a skosh more room in the legs.
MORE WHITE JEANS
I changed out the simple white tee for this black henley and the silver jewelry for these longer, white and black earrings. I’m surprised how much I’m loving these earrings because the lines are clean but they make a statement. A necklace would have felt like overkill to me because of the little white buttons on the top.
Are you a fan of white jeans?
Dare I ask…how about skinny jeans?
Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
