It’s Friday Eve, ladies (thank goodness)!! I guess my four-day week last week spoiled me because all I have been doing for the past few days is counting down until the weekend!
Today, I’m sharing one of my absolute FAVORITE ways to wear white denim … it’s a white out, y’all! Wearing white on white can definitely be risky and scary at first, but it is so refreshing, feminine and classy. And when it is styled the right way, you will sure turn some heads!
If it is still cold where you live, you can even throw on a cozy cardi like I’ve done here to stay warm, while still feeling like you are showing off your favorite spring style. Spring is kind of tricky because one day it will be warm and the next it can be super cold, so my biggest suggestion for spring styling is to go ahead and start wearing your white pants, your all-white outfits and bright, spring colors, but also be sure to include a jacket or cardigan of some sort to stay warm if the temps drop. Here in Knoxville, it’s been pretty warm the past few days, but I still have to take a jacket or cardi with me at night because it gets kind of chilly!
Shop my look:
v-neck tee | J Brand white denim (dupes HERE!) | Free People long cardi (so soft & on sale!!) | similar hat (under $20) | fringe heels | similar sunnies | LV wristlet | kate spade ‘mrs’ necklace | Lisi Lerch earrings (super comfortable to wear) | lips (Ruby Woo)
As I said, wearing white on white can be scary at first if you have never worn that style before, but I hope that this look will help inspire you to step out on a limb and try it out for yourself! I also styled another white-out look HERE that may help you! My biggest piece of advice for styling white on white looks is to keep it simple and not try too hard. Effortless style is always best for this type of look. My plain, white v-neck & plain, white denim jeans combo is a great example of this. I’m sure that you probably have those two pieces in your closet right this second!
Another thing that makes people nervous about even wearing white in general is that white tends to accentuate the problem areas – true. But, that doesn’t mean that you should just delete it from your wardrobe completely. Trust me, I’ve got problem areas too that I don’t want to be shown off whenever I wear certain outfits, so I’ve just learned to work with my body type and figure out what looks best and how to hide the problem spots. For instance, in white jeans, I always notice that my hips seem to look a lot wider (which wide hips are nothing to be ashamed of ladies — that’s not the point!), but they just appear wider when I wear white jeans vs. regular denim. With that said, I try to disguise this by wearing a jacket tied around my waist or wearing a longer top/cardi/jacket. Another way that helps this type of problem area is to make sure that anything white is not too tight. Skin tight + white usually do not go together (at least for thin materials and pants).
That’s just my personal preference. If I’m being completely honest with you, I’ve always been self-conscious about my lower half, so these are just my own opinions. If you feel the same way as I do, then maybe these tips could help you out as well! And if you don’t feel the same way, then girlfriend, ROCK IT! You are the type of person that inspires me to always become more comfortable in my own skin every single day. xoxoxo 🙂
