white denim.

what i've been wearing lately?
white denim.

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?

mini-she's school play was this weekend.
they did such an amazing job!
(flannel, go jane; denim, guess)

  3. Love the look! I don't wear white too much, I have a habit of wiping my hands on my pants, and I know for sure I'll drop something on it and stain in within the first 5 mins.! :( I have 1 cropped white flared jeans from the gap that are almost vintage, but super comfy!

    Annie!Awesome! I have a handmade Annie doll that my aunty sewed a hundred years ago! 1 year I was Annie for Halloween! My mom sewed the dress for me! I wore knee highs and mary janes, with a clown wig.

    Have a great week!

  5. I love white denim, but they can be tricky. I look for a thicker material so it doesn't show all the lumps and bumps. Plus nude underwear! Loving your plaid and leopard combo too. Heather

  7. You look great. I am mostly terrified by white denim, but I agree that you don't want it skin tight. And I agree with Heather too - a thicker denim is better than thin and sheer.

  11. I have been wearing a lot of denim lately too. And finding the right jeans is so hard. A key for me is just a touch of stretch. I cannot stand when jeans get too loose by the end of the day.

  14. Becks my absence makes me think that you look more glamorous now huh!It's lovely how you tie your hair and love how you pair your white jeans with your top. The last time I wear white jeans is when I'm on my high school days!:)

  20. the main reason I can't wear white is because I swear as soon as I do, I am a magnet for FILTH. nothing white in my wardrobe stays white for long. these look lovely on you though!

  21. I really love white jeans but stay away from them mainly because whenever I do wear them I seem to draw every speck of dirt to me. I wish I could look as good as you in them and keep them looking fresh and crisp.

    I really love how you paired the leopard with the plaid. It is a little bit of an unexpected combination which makes it even more stunning.
