#WeTheCurvy: White Jeans Image by: Geneviève Caron
White denim has long been a crisp summer staple and a must for every woman’s wardrobe. Our #WeTheCurvy columnist, Meredith Shaw, shows us how this classic garment works for every occasion.
We curvy queens have spent too many summers limiting what we wear based on someone else’s ideas that rob us of reaching our own #OOTD (outfit of the day) potential. White jeans have been criticized as something that can make you look fat, but this stylish and versatile essential is, in fact, fashionable no matter your size. Once you wear white, your style takes flight!
The White Jean
We love these straight-leg jeans (sizes 14 to 28), pictured throughout, from NYDJ for the curve-contouring construction that flatters in the back and the crisscross panel inside that flattens in the front. Marilyn denim jeans, $176, nydj.com.
Take your jeans to new heights by rolling them up. A cuff is an easy way to make any look more casual and a fun way to show off your cute slides. For a relaxed vibe, steer clear of tops that cling; instead, look for ones that skim your curves and create shape, like this sweet striped blouse with a knotted front.
Hello, tunic! Look effortlessly streamlined by opting for a flowing fabric with bold vertical stripes. The proportion of a longer top with a slim pant is elegant, timeless and simple to wear. Take this look to wowza by rocking bright accessories—and don’t be afraid if they match.
White denim is a perfect workday option, as long as it’s not distressed or worn. When appropriately paired with a structured jacket and fabulous accessories, these pants look less like jeans and more like trousers. Add a patterned blouse, using the colours in it as the palette to complete your look.
