“I don’t think you’re supposed to wear white jeans after 1983” – Drew Barrymore as Josie Geller, Never Been Kissed.
You know what they say about white jeans after Labor Day… and if you are anything like me the white jean is something that you’re not so confident about wearing at any time. To me, white jeans have always been something reserved for the thin long legs that I do not possess. However, I urge you, if you are like me, to reconsider this notion.

The white jean can be as much a staple as your blue jeans, it’s all about styling and confidence, both in your personal style and in your ability to move food from plate to mouth without any unfortunate detours.
If you’ve ever thought that you loved the look of white jeans but couldn’t pull it off, now if the perfect time to set your worries aside and experiment. The sun is out and that makes white jeans a perfect fresh new take on the classic jean for your summer wardrobe.
The white jean is not exclusive to those with model figures or those holding on to their 1980’s hey day, I will argue that the white jean can be chic and sophisticated on every woman. Reaching for white instead of blue or black often results in a cleaner, classier look.
Style white on white for a blazing summer statement, breaking the line with a belt. Play with different denim colours and textures within one outfit, keep it casual with a breezy chambray shirt and a pair of loafers or try out full monochrome. Keep the fit tight or straight and slightly cropped above the ankle, keep the styling simple and let the legs do all the talking!
The real beauty of white denim is the ease with which you can dress it up or down and still come away looking chic.
