Style 3-Play: White Jeans Look One

As a girl who love her jeans, I’m always open to “upgrading” my collection with some dynamite new denim…but what’s quite challenging to find – in my humble opinion! – is a flattering pair of white jeans!!

Unless you happen to be blessed with legs like a runway model, there is an awful lot of white denim out there that’s definitely not right.  Three caveats to help a mere mortal avoid “sausage-casing syndrome??” Fabric that’s too lightweight or too stretchy, or any style that’s super skinny…which immediately rules out the vast majority of available options!!

It took some patience, but I found my own little bit of white denim heaven at Winners last week!!  These Seven jeans have minimal stretch (only two percent) and are slim-fitting without looking second-skin tight; and as a bonus, the front pockets are faux…which means there’s none of that “show through” that always irks me so much with white pants!!

Since summer somehow doesn’t feel like summer if it doesn’t include a perfect pair of white jeans, I’ve got two more outfit combinations this week for your style inspiration, dear readers…be sure to come back on Wednesday for Look Two!!  😉

      Now that the sutures have come out – and I'm realizing that my missing tooth isn't QUITE as visible as I had feared! – I'm definitely feeling better, dearest Debbie!! It's hard not to be a bit self-conscious, though…so I've been indulging in some liberal use of "retail therapy" to compensate!! 😉

      I agree, dear Jodie…white jeans and summer go together like apple pie and ice cream!! 😉

    Very cute jeans! I got rid of mine this year because I just didn't like the fit. Now I have a hole in my wardrobe. 😉

      I know exactly what you mean, dearest Joni!! These new white jeans were a "mandatory" replacement for my previous white pair…which were too big for me now. A denim wardrobe just doesn't feel complete without them, does it?! 😉

    Oooh, this look is summer perfection!! And it's making me realize… I MUST have some white denim in my life. These jeans are absolutely perfection! You're looking gorgeous Monika! xo

      Summer just doesn't feel like summer without a great-fitting pair of white jeans…am I right, dearest V?! And I'm totally confident that you'll find your own perfect pair; it won't be NEARLY as much of a challenge for a long-limbed lady like you!! 😉

      I think I hit the white jeans "jackpot" with these, dearest Dawn!! Now I just need to decide if I want to keep cuffing the bottoms…or if I'll take my scissors to the hems for a DIY raw edge!! 😉
