For the most part, I don’t really like listening to fashion “rules” at all – especially when it comes to white jeans. In my opinion, as long as it’s going to be around or above 65 degrees, it doesn’t matter what month it is! Who needs to wait for Memorial Day? Not I! And neither should you! Let me explain.
Finding the perfect white pants can be hard, but once you do, it adds so much crispness to your look. Imagine this outfit with regular jeans – not nearly as cheery, right?! But take crisp white pants and pair them with a neutral jacket, a pop of color, and a little heel height, and you’re lookin (and feelin!) real fresh. No more winter blues here!
PSA: I can already tell that these sandals are going to be my everything this summer. They’re neutral and sleek, the heel is thick and the perfect walkable height, and they are SO. COMFORTABLE. I’m so glad I scooped them up – worth every penny!
But back to the white jeans…
If you think I glossed over the fact that finding white jeans is hard because I don’t understand, you are mistaken. I FEEL YOU. I REALLY DO. Shopping for white pants can be straight up brutal. It’s not the right rise, it’s not the right length, the fabric shows every dimple on your legs, the fabric make your thighs look wide… I mean the list goes on. That being said, if you’re on the petite side, I can’t recommend this pair enough. They’re technically cropped, which means they’re more of a normal length on us gals, plus there’s a lot of great stretch, and the rips still somehow hit in the right places. Highly recommend!
Do you dare wear white jeans before Memorial Day? ? If so, how do you style them?!
