Rain in Style

Hey everyone! Welcome back. This week I thought that I'd talk a little about my arch nemesis...The White Denim. What? It totally sounds like an evil villain name...The White Denim strikes again. Think about it...perfect comic book title. Ok but for reals, let's talk about some styling ideas for white jeans and also one big thing to look out for.

Y'all know me, you know I will discuss the realness of a situation. And there are plenty of real concerns when talking about white denim. Ladies, it cannot under any circumstance be see through.  The material needs to be thick enough that you can't see through it. I don't know about you but, I love my underwear...and yet I don't want the entire public to see it. Keep it classy! Look for a skinny jean cut, even better if it's mid-high rise. The ones that I have are distressed and are by JBrand, my favorite brand. Find JBrand here.  I have also hear some good things about American Eagle, J Crew, and Loft. I do love American Eagle jean shorts; I think I just might have to go and try their jeans on too, white or otherwise. Helloooooo shopping.

Ok so maybe wearing my white jeans to a farm, wasn't the best idea... good thing I had this jacket with me so I could put it down before I sat. White jeans have a tendency to strike fear into the hearts of many when faced with the need to sit down while outside. But, regardless, I survived and so did the jeans. By the way, my jacket is H&M, graphic tee and shoes are from Zulilly. My bag is Betsey Johnson from ThredUP.

 So, what do you wear with white jeans? Pretty much anything. Here are a few outfit ideas. Go bold and contrasty in black and white, bonus points if you add a pop of color in your shoes or bag choice. Pink hair optional :) The white graphic tee is from Zulilly, Jacket is Blank NYC, shoes are from ThredUP.

Try your white denim with a chambray top and neutral shoes. I'm wearing leopard heels here, because of course, but you could swap them for wedges, sandals or booties. My top is Buffalo by David Bitton, and I found it on ThredUP.  Vince Camuto heels from ThredUP.

Go tropical with it. Something about white denim makes me think tropical...I have no idea why. Try putting a floral top with them. The top on the left is Dalia and I found it at T.J.Maxx, shoes are Sam Edelman from DSW.  The top on the right is by my favorite Yumi Kim; it is second hand from ThredUP, shoes are Jessica Simpson from DSW.

OR go the opposite direction and try them with an animal print top. It's always good to keep 'em guessing...will she be tropical today or edgy or girly?? LOL. You never really know, do you? This jacket is Romeo and Juliet from TJMaxx and my top is  Violet and Claire from ThredUP.  Shoes are Sam Edelman from ThredUP.

Whichever way you choose to style them, don't forget to have fun and be confident. Like a narwhal..aka sea unicorn. There's nothing more confident than a narwhal. This hilarious top is from Zulilly, be sure to check there often, they have some amusing graphic tees. Shoes are Lucky Brand; these are probably the most comfortable wedges that I own...so of course I have them in black polka dots too. LOL.
