The Denim Edit: Finding + Styling the Perfect White Jeans
Its been a busy few weeks of travel over here and as a true homebody, I can't tell you how good it feels to finally be settling back into my routine. My girlfriends and I recently traveled to Cedar Lakes Estate in the heart of the Hudson Valley for a short getaway. While mother nature reared her head and brought us a complete washout, we still made the best of our trip!
Of course, traveling as 4 bloggers, we brought about 4x the clothing that we actually needed; but there was one thing on my packing list that was a no-brainer - a pair of white denim.
Great fitting jeans in general are not easy to come by. White jeans, however, are on a completely different level. When searching for the right pair, I always look for a few key design aspects. In the rare occasion that they check all of the boxes, they're becoming a permanent fixture in my wardrobe.

What I Look for in
When it comes to my body type and style preference, I have completely ruled out low rise denim. I always look for a medium to high rise and feel that it helps to show off a more flattering shape.
The see through look is not cute. Always, always look for a thicker jean when searching for white denim. White is white, and often with clothing, it's hard to find a white that isn't sheer. The thicker the denim, the less likely you'll be able to see right through them.
Pockets are something you may not pay attention to at first glance, but they're so important! The smaller the pockets, the more likely they are to emphasize your butt. Look for pockets that sit in the middle of the jean and that cover most of the backside of the denim.
Styling White Denim
There are so many ways to make white denim work! Here are my 3 go-to's:
WHITE ON WHITE
It's the Summer - take advantage of the white on white look! When I found this sheer star print top this outfit came together immediately in my head. One of the reasons I love white on white is because it's a clean, sleek look which gives you the perfect neutral canvas to accessorize with.
WHITE + CHAMBRAY
Another classic, easy combo perfect for summer. You get two-in-one with a chambray button up - wear it buttoned or unbuttoned, with a cami underneath.
WHITE + PRINT
Printed blouses are a great way to add some color + pattern to a white denim look. I recommend chiffon or silk to add a bit of texture to your denim. Anything from a flowy boho-esque blouse to a tucked in cami works!
