Every spring, I dig out my trusty white skinny jeans and pair them with a crisp blue shirt, nautical stripe or a bold coral. Then I get them grubby before I even make it out of my bedroom, change them and then stuff them back in to my wardrobe.
Not the most flattering colour to wear but if you pick the right pair for your shape, they can look incredible – whatever your shape or size.
I just need to find a pair made of cat proof, make up and coffee resistant fabric….
White jeans have a bad reputation. They’re inclined to cling to every lump and bump, they can make legs appear shorter and thicker, and you do have check where you’re sitting! However, the right pair will work wonders for women of all shapes and sizes. Freshen up your wardrobe in time for spring with a good pair of white jeans, and check out these five ways to style them…
The classic white skinny
If you’re feeling nervous about trying this trend, opt for a classic white skinny jean. Check out the range of jeans from Superdry and see what feels comfortable for you; as well as being great for the weekend, white skinnies are perfect for dress down day at the office. It’s a casual but tailored look when paired for a striped button-down shirt with a loose fit, tucked in casually to the waistband with a pair of smart flats or heels. You’ll look summery, vibrant and remarkably fresh considering it’s the end of the working week!
The high-waisted white jean
Don’t feel nervous about high-waisted white jeans. In fact, a high-waist will hide love handles and hold in any wobbly bits, and can look far classier than a low-rise pair! Take a leaf out of Kim Kardashian’s book: team your white jeans with other neutral colours, such as oatmeal, grey and beige, layering up your outfit with different textures. Wear a cotton cream bodysuit, slip on some nude heels and belt a long-line sleeveless cardigan over the top. This whole outfit will streamline and lengthen your silhouette, using your fresh white denim as a perfect neutral base.
The white boyfriend jean
If you’ve avoided white jeans because they’ve always seemed too ‘try hard’, a boyfriend jean might be the way to go. Why? Simple – boyfriend jeans are all about waking up, rolling out of bed and throwing on a pair of your lover’s comfiest trousers; it’s the antithesis to Liz Hurley glamour! Better yet, this style really suits pear shapes who struggle to squeeze themselves into slimmer styles. Take it to the nth degree with comfortable sneakers, a college sweater or a playful t-shirt.
The cropped white jean
Nothing says a trip to the seaside or a stroll in the park like a pair of cropped jeans. We recommend teaming your white pair with navy blue hues. It’s a trick popular with women like Pippa Middleton as it oozes sophistication and maturity: you’ll be wearing the fashion equivalent of a sunny day in Santorini! For a younger, more laid-back look, team your white cropped jeans with a Breton tee and a fading denim jacket.
The white flares
If you’re feeling particularly daring, take on 2016’s trend for flares. A fresh take on a classic 1970s trend, white flares give the impression your legs go on for days and slims your waist. Perfect for an upmarket brunch date or a business meeting, we’d tuck in a sleek boat neck t-shirt (an excellent neckline for balancing out the width the flares give your bottom half) and finish it with a tailored jacket. Just beware red wine and public transport!
