Every Woman Should Own a Pair of White Jeans

I’ll be honest, it took me a few years to let go of all the reasons why I couldn’t add a white pair of jeans in my wardrobe. Six years later, I now own two pairs: one skinny and one boot cut. And I absolutely LOVE them!

Here are the most common reasons why women are afraid of white jeans:

  • They will highlight my lumps and bumps.

  • They can only be worn three months of the year, so why invest in them?

  • They are for the younger women and I’m no longer in that age range.

  • They will show my underwear.

  • They will get ruined upon first wear.

And the #1 reason…

  • They will make me look fat.

Now, let’s all just decide that the reasons above are no longer valid because they aren’t. 

Here are the top reasons why white jeans ROCK:

  • Color (or lack thereof): they work with every pattern or shade.

  • They lighten up the look of any dark top or jacket, paired with a beautifully rich fall/winter colored flats and a trench coat for that crisp autumn night.

  • White is the ultimate neutral and can be dressed up with a blazer or dressed down with a casual shirt or sweater.

Not sure what style is best for you? 

Here are my top 8 tips for finding the best splurge-worthy pair to add to your closet essentials.

  • Fit is key. They must not be too tight. Always error on the looser side when it comes to light colored pants and jeans.

  • Find a thick denim with some spandex for stretch for smoothing out any areas.

  • To slim out the leg, opt for a lighter colored, not overly chunky shoe. A slight heel or wedge always helps you out.

  • Any color worn head to toe is slimming and this year’s white-on-white trend is still perfect. Top with a colorful or patterned blazer or sweater for a pop of color, which helps to ground the outfit.

  • If you're full-figured, the bootcut is always your friend. Pair with a hip-length loose top to balance out the bottom half.

  • If you are petite, try out a skinny leg option (ankle or full length). To elongate the legs, try tucking in your top (at least in the front)
