How to wear white denim in the winter

As I've mentioned, white is my favorite color. It gets a lot of flack for not being a 'slimming' shade, and while white denim might be the furthest thing from you mind right now, it doesn't have to be.

Forget about those antiquated 'labor day rules', and forget about the massive amounts of carbs and candy which have been consumed over these past few weeks; these skinny jeans (made in the USA!) have been designed to be extremely slimming (everything from fabric content to placement of pockets), and if that isn't enough on its own, I have a couple styling suggestions on how to keep everything hidden; the sequined peplum being my favorite, of course.

I agree that the Labor Day rule is silly and you can wear white year round.

This post comes in right in the exact moment! Last night was putting together some outfits for the weekend and came across my white jeans, and thought of a cool outfit with them but got a bit scared, left it on the maybe rack. Thanks to you I want to wear it now! Am I that influenceable? ... I love the peplum look too, but is so cold right now that I think the cute printed cardi would be a better option for me, I just cant resist oversized ones!

If I were brave enough for white jeans I would totally wear that casual look! :D (I'm DEFINITELY not brave enough for white and sequins, haha)

I love that Bebe top!
White jeans have always been a fashion fear of mine, but one that I'd really like to face one day!

Cee said...

There is no way I would dream of putting my white denim away for winter - once I finally took the plunge, I realised what I had been missing and there was no way I would put them away for six months! Although I guess black skinnies are more slimming, I never think white ones make me look that much bigger... But just in case, that cosy cardigan would be a lovely addition to my wardrobe!

I love breaking the rules, wearing white in winter is so chic! I love it. Super cute outfit.

I have ALWAYS worn my white jeans when it was NOT trending because in Oregon the uniform for man woman and child is blue jeans. I REFUSE to follow the pack so I always wore white. Not that it is OKAY I have stopped wearning jeans altogether.

I love white jeans any time of the year. My favorite white jeans were destroyed last summer. I definitely need to start the hunt for another pair.

I think white is such a clean, minimalist hue, but I have such a hard time keeping it clean! I guess I'm just an errant ketchup stain magnet ... ;o)

Alison @ Get Your Pretty On said...

LOVE white jeans in the winter. I almost wore mine today but it rained and I didn't want to get them dirty. These pairings are amazing!

Nikki said...

White works any time of the year! I love the white jeans and gold top together. Gorgeous!

I've only worn my white jeans once after Labor Day, but I really need to get them out again. Thanks for the inspiration!

I've yet to find the perfect white jeans (two tries in), but totally love the look of winter whites! Seriously adore that sequin peplum too. I think you should get it, you'd rock it!

Lovely outfit inspiration. I'm such a fan of that peplum. And, the white denim is a good concept for winter too. :)

Raquelita said...

I love the idea of white denim, but I'm pretty sure I would immediately spill coffee or red wine on myself if I wore them.
