Summer 2012 Trend: White Denim

June 27, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Shopping, Trends

OK, so white denim isn’t so much as a trend as it is a wardrobe staple for many come summertime. However, personally I have not owned a pair of white jeans in years. That all changed this year as 1) I lost the baby weight 2) white jeans are the perfect balance to the neon and pastel color palettes that are so hot this year. Yes, white denim is a little dangerous, especially if you have little messy kids like I do, but I was willing to take the risk. I also made sure I didn’t spend too much on them in case they became a hand-towel. It does not make sense for me at this stage to spend more than $75 on denim I will most likely have to toss out in September. If I get two seasons out of them, it will just be an added bonus. I bought mine at Joe Fresh, but I know you too can find them ultra cheap and many are on sale now. Mind you…if I didn’t have kids I would certainly splurge a little. I mean nothing looks better than ‘the good stuff.’ I was also surprised by the range of cuts! I found everything from skinny cut to cargos. I didn’t pick any capris because that is a dirty word in my fashion vocabulary and scream “MOM JEANS”! Now cropped are a different story. Oh and a trick I learned with denim is that, the larger the back pocket, the smaller your butt will appear…and in white denim, smaller is better. Here are 10 pairs of white denim I am digging right now:

1. J Brand Houlihan Cargos, $232

3. Genetic Denim White Stretch Denim ‘The Cypress’ Slim Flit Flare Jeans, now $78
