what i've been wearing lately?
here's a few things i look for when choosing a pair:
- one that has some stretch to it
regular denim can be bulky
- choose a slim and straight-legged fit instead of a skinny fit
creating a straight line from hip to ankles will lengthen. think triangle vs. rectangle. skinny denim will show off your curves giving you a triangluar shape which is wide across the middle and skinny at the ankles. a slim pair that is fitted but not tight at the ankles gives a slimming, uniform width.
go for the rectangle.
- fitted but not skin tight
we all know white can widen, but don't over-compensate by going tighter. for obvious reasons, white shows everything...
don't add muffin top to that. loosen up a bit.
- choose the right length
whether you're looking for skinnys or long flared denim, avoid bunching at the bottom. you can cuff them to your ankles (like i did here) or make sure the flare is wide enough to fall over your shoes.
wearing white can be tricky, but as with anything else, it's all about finding the right proportions for your body. are you intimidated by wearing white? what do you look for when purchasing white bottoms?
