Summer is here and it is time to break out your sundresses, bright colors, and yes- your whites including your white jeans. From now until Labor Day you are free to wear those classic white jeans that everybody loves but few can truly pull off.
The trick to wearing white jeans is confidence. You have to know what you’re doing to pull off an almost iconic fashion look. So, to get you ready to rock those white jeans, keep these tips in mind.
Keeping Your White Clean
The number one rule of wearing white jeans, or white anything really, is keeping your look clean and pressed. White unfortunately shows a lot of dirt, wrinkles, and other imperfections. It is up to you to keep your pants clean to keep them looking fabulous, otherwise people might start looking at your stains instead of how fabulous you look.
- Pressed: White can tend to show off imperfections so make sure that your jeans are properly pressed to avoid lines and wrinkles.
- Penned: Carry a “Tide to Go” or other laundry pen with you in case you get something on you that might stain. Club soda is another great go-to stain remover.
- Pearly: Just like you want your teeth to be pearly white, you also want your jeans to stay white. Learning how to launder white jeans is half the battle of wearing them. Avoid bleach. Pre-treat stains. Wash delicately and less often that you do your other jeans. Make sure to only ever wash them with other whites, as they will pick up the other colors of your laundry.
Picking the Right Moment
Although it might seem obvious, not every occasion is a good moment to rock your white jeans. Anywhere that you might have to sit on the ground, like a picnic or sports game, may not be the best place to keep your whites white. A children’s birthday party is another place you might want to avoid.
Mind What You Wear Under There
The day you wear white jeans is the day you need to put serious thought into your underwear choices. Bright colors or dark panties are highly likely to show through your pants, as are any patterns. You are best off wearing skin colored panties that don’t give you panty lines.
Choose the Right Fit for Your White Jeans
Again, white can be unforgiving. To really rock the look, make sure you choose a pair that fit well. Pick the pair that is best for your body type and aren’t too snug.
Accessorize White Jeans Accordingly
The last part of putting together the perfect summer look is pairing your white jeans with the very best coordinating blouses and accessories. White looks good with just about everything, so this is the easy part. White especially looks good with navy blue, yellow, and of course black. Some chunky jewelry and delicate leather sandals complete a look that anyone can envy.
You know the rules, you have the confidence. Now you can rock the look. White jeans are a summer symbol, and you are ready to wear them with poise and confidence.
