White jeans are the perfect summer staple, but we wouldn’t want our Madames going out without a few tips for rocking them right. Here’s how to find the freshest, most flattering pair!
1. Fit Comes First. Fit is always paramount when shopping for clothes, but you have to be especially picky about white jeans which can be way less forgiving than blue denim. A simple pair with clean lines will flatter any shape. Avoid extra details like bulky patch pockets and colorful stitching. Straight-legged styles look good on everyone, even curvy girls. If you’ve got the shape, skinny jeans are great in a stretchy lightweight fabric. Bootcut trousers are a great option for those not comfortable in very fitted jeans.
2. Fabric. Even though they are jeans, there’s always a chance that they may be see-through depending on the weight of the cotton and the blend. Try them on before you buy and make sure they are opaque and don’t have the front pockets waving at people as they approach you.
3. Put It All Together. Today is not the day to rock your cute, bright-pink panties. A skin-tone matching thong or bikini panty in a thin, seamless fabric is the best way to go. Next, dress them up or down with flats or Converse on a casual weekend or with heels on a night out. You can go Hot with a bright top and jeweled-tone heels; classic with a tailored button-down (leave a few buttons open for feminine flair) and flats; or go comfy-hippie with a flowing floral top and wedge sandals. Another great, simple look? All-white. An white t-shirt and jeans with a pop of color from your bag and/or shoes looks fabulous. Just make sure your whites are WHITE. Don’t forget a little bleach in your wash — Oxi-Clean products really work.
