Summer Denim. White Done Right

May 27, 2008 • Fashion

Since it’s the day after Memorial Day we thought, why not a post on one of our favorites? White jeans. It’s not like you have to wait until Memorial Day to wear them anymore. Thankfully, that rule has gone out the window just like wearing suede in the summer is no longer taboo. White denim has become a summer essential.

No matter your body type there is a flattering fit out there for you. Here are some for almost every body:


Paige Denim Skyline Peg-Leg Ankle Jean, White Destruction Wash $179
If you are thin and fit, why not try a pegged style?


7 for all Mankind Ginger Wide-Leg Jean, Clean White Wash $154
A wide leg jean in white is always a good option for those who do not want a tight fit around the leg. These have a 9" rise and a 24" leg opening.


Rich & Skinny Lanky Bellbottom Jean, Optic White Wash $209
You don’t have to be either rich nor skinny to rock these jeans.


7 for all Mankind Edie Flood Jean, Palm Desert Wash $167 or SIWY Denim Hannah Slim Cropped Jean – White $69 on sale.
Petite? Personally, I am a fan of Siwy! The inseam on both of these are desirable for petites.


Cheap Monday Tight Jean in Optic White $65
We figured out the hard way what ‘In Style’ already knows. These jeans are made for the tall girl! With a 32-34" inseam, you can’t go wrong if you are blessed with height. You can’t beat the price either!


Joe’s Jeans Denim Honey $168
Got curves? These jeans provide a little more room in the butt and hips. The fitted waist prevents gapping for a win/win combination.

Paige Premium Denim Womens Benedict Canyon Monarch – Worn in Optic White $198
If you are plus sized, this designer jeans is a miracle worker! The angled seems pull you in a make you appear leaner!

7 For All Mankind High Waist Boot Cut $148
For those of you, like me, with a long waist a high-waist cut is where it’s at.

Raven Denim Mackenzie with Braid Pocket Trouser in Optic White $233
These are great when you need a lift. You know, in the rear. Side seams and well-placed pockets give you that extra umph.

For a variety of styles for regulars, petites and tall…check out the Gap’s white jean selection. Affordable and chic.

Tip: If you want to create the illusion you have a little backside, the bigger the back pockets, the better. I learned this trick years ago and it has served me well. Also avoid embellished pockets. And remember, white that’s too tight…ain’t right.

    I love 7 For All Mankind. Those white jeans are chic. They have the best fit I have found to date! I see Jennifer Garner wearing them all the time and she looks so cute.
