HOW I STYLED WHITE SKINNY JEANS

Hi everyone,

For some inexplicable reason, I have never owned white jeans before, my arguments being that they are either too hot to wear in summer or too white to wear in winter.  Does that make any sense to you?

Anyway, one day my daughter dragged me into a General Pants store and convinced me that I should try on a pair of white denims.  She thrust a pair of J Brand jeans into my hands and pushed me towards the dressing room.  Although I quite liked what I saw, I was still not quite sure if I was ready for them, so following my usual practice, I decided to bring them home to see with what and how I am going to wear them.

After a some time spent in front of the mirror, I decided that they are good enough to join my wardrobe.

Besides, white denim jeans are a hot item for 2015 spring.  The spectrum of styles is quite broad:   skinny, boy cut, bell-bottoms, crew-cut, wide legged, you name it, and thanks to this variety, it provides us all with a great opportunity to select a pair that is perfect for our body type.

I guess the main point in their favour was that they are hugely versatile and widely adaptable and contrary to my prejudice, can be worn almost throughout the year, in Sydney, that is.

You can pair them with simple t-shirts, a smart blouse or come the cooler months they could be layered with knit jumpers, jackets or coats.  Dressed up or down, you can wear them to the office, lunch, picnic or to a dinner party.  The accessories are a key to convey the mood of your outfit so for a dress-up affair, don’t hesitate to put on a pair of dress shoes, carry a nice bag and wear some striking jewelry.

Alternatively, white sneakers or flats, a t-shirt or a button-up shirt and simple jewelry are the key elements for a more casual relaxed event.

And don’t forget that whites, like a blank canvas, are perfect for anchoring prints. 

A point to remember: it is very difficult to hide any imperfections behind the white colour pants, especially if they are too tight or ill fit so my advice is to look closely into the mirror and if you don't like what you see, chances are neither will other people.

The safe approach when it comes to choosing a style, would be the one that you know you look good in or if you not quite sure, select a pair in the same or similar style to the ones you bought previously.

The key principal to look fabulous and confident in white jeans is to be honest with yourself, know your body advantages and flaws and choose the style that is right for you.

I would like to share with you a few images of how I would wear white jeans.

Please leave your comments, suggestions or questions and I would be delighted to respond.

Until then
