I have a love hate relationship with white jeans. Impossible to keep clean, hard to wash and cause all kinds of underwear dilemmas-white jeans are a pain in the arse! BUT they are also so damn flattering!
I went through a dangerous white jeans phase when I was younger. I used to wear white flares with a pair of rainbow stripe wedge shoes far too big for me and a tight green and white boob tube top. Lovely. *shudder*
Thankfully my style has evolved somewhat and I’m willing to try white denim again.
It just so happens I was in Penneys with the grand sum of €1.50, “just browsing”. I was trying on some white jeans when I realised one pair were marked down from €19 to €1! I took this as a sign from the cosmic gods…
These jeans are slightly cropped with multiple rips and a skinny fit. I never wear cropped jeans but lets face it at €1 it’s worth a try! I think they will be great with heels and can’t wait to wear them.
So here are some other gorge white denims which caught my eye lately. I also tried on white dungaree shorts in Penneys, I think these are the same pair. It says they’re €15 online but some Penneys may have reduced them. I love dungaree shorts with a cute coloured t-shirt or a patterned short-sleeve shirt underneath.
White denim jackets get a summer update in the form of embroidery. The floral one is from Topshop and the plainer one is Mango. It does have a design on the reverse however.
For a great pair of white push-up jeans that fit like a glove, try Bershka. I’ve bought their push-up jeans, they fit like a jegging and are so comfortable.
When it comes to white denim, a few rips and subtle embellishment is best. Avoid jeans with loads of detail- white jeans can go from classy to trashy VERY quickly!
This cami top with bow detail on the back is just gorgeous and on sale at Asos.com. It’s reduced from €81 to €49.
And an even better bargain is this fab scallop denim mini-skirt from Pretty Little Thing.com. Only €14!!
These oh-so-trendy Zara shorts come with a cute handkerchief attached. I presume it’s detachable?! And yes I want that Pepsi t-shirt also.
Another Penneys bargain is this white denim shirt. At €11, even I could (almost) afford it 😛 I love the contrast buttons and detail on the pockets.
Just to let you know I don’t receive any kind of incentive or payment to promote any of these brands-these are all my personal favourites! What do you think about white denim? Leave me a comment and let me know.
P.S. The book ‘We need to talk about Kevin’ traumatised me, hence the title, feel free to leave me a comment if you too were traumatised!!
