White jeans have been circling the fashion skies since last summer and now that the warmer weather is here, there is really no escaping the thrend. They’re the trans-seasonal staple of your wardrobe and just as versatile and twice as interesting as your black skinnies. It adds a fresh pop to any outfit and worn right, it looks interesting, fresh and grown-up (because only grown-ups manage not to spill things on their clothes:)).
So how best to wear white denim in a way that feels current and chic? It’s all in the detail of cut, colour and oufit composition. Find the right shade, in the right cut for you and you will love them this season. Besides, until the weather catches up, chalky denim screams summer.
First rule: no skinnies. If you want to avoid looking basic, keep cuts straight, cropped, bootcut or oversized. You’re better off wearing a men’s original fit Levis 501 than a pair of Primark numbers in my eyes:). I also prefer no stretch trousers and rather stick with the stiff ones, as they’re 100 % cotton varieties for a purposeful, high-fashion look. Frayed and split knees feel a bit 2016 but I still like them, when you want to go very casual. Next rule: chunky black and navy jumpers are an ideal pairing but also neutrals work well, but remember a too pale look looks quickly also too simple, so think to play with the colours! I found my perfect white pair of white jeans with a simple straight cut at Zara. They’ve got a tiny bit frayed hems but not too much. It’s really a perfect fit! I combined them with a off the shoulder top with wide sleeves…never too much off-the-shoulder tops, right:)? To accomplishment the look a wore striped white/blue espadrilles from Soludos. Again I always love to play with colours and try to combine matching shades and blue, brown and white are a great and neat colour combination.
