Happy Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful, and relaxing, Memorial day weekend! We spent ours BBQing and swimming. Memorial Day and the end of May officially marks the start of white pants season. I always end up transitioning to lighter denim and to white denim at the first signs of spring. I’m rule breaker 😉 I wear a lot of denim day to day but I love to start mixing it up come spring time. And wearing white instantly makes an outfit look refreshed and chic.
So in honor of the official start of acceptable wearing of our whites, I wanted share one of my favorite basic spring and summer looks. I love white jeans and how easy it is to dress them up or dress them down. I often wear mine during the day with flip flops or slides and then dress them up at night with a fab pair of heels. One of my favorite ways to wear white denim is with a basic tank or cami and a jacket, such as a denim jacket. White denim is a classic staple that every woman should own, in my opinion.
I’ll admit that it’s not always easy to find the perfect pair of white denim. Avoiding tight see-through styles and paying close attention to fit and fabric helps. I also like to look closely at pockets and zippers. Two of my pet peeves with white denim are front pockets and zippers that are visible. I highly recommend trying out some new brands that you may not always wear. Some of my very favorite tried and true blue jean brands don’t always carry a great pair in white too. So I suggest experimenting and trying other brands that you may not usually wear.
Five of my favorite pairs of white pants at the moment are; AG Legging Ankle Jeans, Rag & Bone Cigarette Jeans, AGOLDE High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (also here), FRAME ‘Le Color’ Skinny Jeans (distressed version here) and Paige Ankle Skinny Jeans. You’ll probably notice that I love ankle jeans. I’m 5’5″, and love where ankle styles hit. And since I tend to wear heels a lot the ankle styles work seamlessly with my shoes.
What about you…do you wait for Memorial Day before you wear white? Or are you a rule breaker like me?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!
