Age Gracefully in White Jeans

As I approach my third decade in life, I find myself avoiding white jeans more frequently. You can see EVERYTHING through them. The dimples (yep I said it) and all the other stuff you prefer NOT to highlight. But just because our bodies change with age doesn’t mean we have to alter our style. Today is my attempt to teach you how to wear white jeans with confidence! Hear me out.

The Cut

If you shy away from white jeans for the reasons above, closely consider the cut. For example, I avoid white skinny jeans like the plague. Instead, I gravitate towards: flare, bootcut, or straight leg jeans. The taper at the knee takes tension off of the thighs, leaving you with a smooth upper half. This tassel hem pair is the perfect hybrid of skinny and straight.

Length of Top

If you’re squeamish at the thought of white pants, the length of your top makes all the difference. Make sure it is long enough to cover your lady parts. I stick with tunics or tops with asymmetrical tail hems. The added back coverage makes me feel more comfortable in my skin (literally and figuratively)! This stunner by Alice and Trixie, for example, provides me moderate front and back coverage. Try something like this and let me know what you think.

Wear it Like You Own it

Finally, take this opportunity to pledge that you’ll never say, “I can’t pull that off” ever again! It literally makes me sad when I get comments from people saying, “I love your outfit but I could never pull that off.” You can pull off anything as long as you do it with confidence! Remember that the next time your shopping for white jeans!
