Happy Memorial Day ladies! This weekend is the official start of summer and when we in the USA honor the men and women who died in service to our country. It’s also when the
out of date fashion rules give us permission to begin wearing white! Since I’m not one to believe or follow fashion rules so I wear white year round… including white jeans.
A flattering white jean may seem like an oxymoron and feel elusive but I know they exist. Today I’m sharing some tips for choosing and styling white jeans that you can feel confident wearing.
Choose heavy denim that is thicker and opaque. Panties showing through is not a flattering look so always remember to wear lingerie in your skin tone. White lingerie shows through white and pale fabrics.
Avoid overly tight legs which give a sausage casing effect. What works for dark jeans isn’t always as flattering in white. Skinny white jeans can be slimming but look for ones that hug rather than strangle. Straight and flare styles are often more flattering in a white jean
As with any jean, the rise can make or break the fit of white jeans. The higher the rise the less likely you’ll struggle with any muffin top action.
The lower the back pockets the lower your backside will appear. Back pockets that are set far apart will make your backside appear wider. If you don’t tuck your tops in choose jeans without extra belt loops and pockets that can look lumpy under your tops. Pull-on styles are great options.
Wear your white jeans with a nude, pale neutral, white or metallic shoe. Even a flat shoe in these colors will help elongate the look of your leg for a slimming effect. A dark shoe slams the eye to a halt at your ankle and makes you look shorter than you are. It also draws the eye to your shoe and makes it the focal point of your look.
Do you wear white jeans?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
