how to style white jeans for Spring - fashion

Well, it's official pink is in and it's official color title in 2016 is rose quartz.  I for one couldn't be happier.  I love pastel colors in spring and this palest of pinks is one of my favorites.  I thought it would be fun to give you a sampling of what I have in my closet in this hue and pair it with white straight leg jeans and some simple platform sandals and see what you think.

I need to offer a slight disclaimer, I love white jeans...on other people.  For some reason I am almost
squeamish about wearing them myself.  Maybe it's that small voice in my head that still seems to whisper that light on the bottom is not flattering for those of us with ample enough bottoms already.  Or maybe it's because the majority of the white jeans I've tried on are a bit on the thin side and can expose a bit more than their sturdier blue denim cousins.

Needless to say, styling these took some courage but now that it's done, I'm glad I did it.

I want to show you how I achieved three different looks simply by changing the style of top I'm wearing.  The shoes, jeans and silver jewelry all stayed the same.

This first blouse is very casual and if I had chosen to wear flat sandals it would have dressed it down even more.  The top is Sonoma from Kohls (similar here).  It is super comfortable and the tassel detail in front gives it a trendy look and the cap sleeve offers a bit of upper arm coverage which I love.  (Plus there is a 15% off coupon at the end of my post.)

I know Spring temperatures are a relative term depending on where you live so I wanted to include a lightweight sweater in the mix.  This striped one is from Loft last year but they have quite a few similar ones on sale right now (similar).

And last is this sweetly detailed blouse from Harve' Benard that I found at Burlington Coat factory right after Christmas for $14.99 (similar here at Kohls).  It has a cute cut out in the back and the delicate lace details add just the right romantic touch.

Whatever the reason, I seem to reach for my white jeans last and I need to change that.  They are so perfect for spring and summer (and all year round now it seems) and offer the perfect counter balance to the warmer weather.  I found these white jeans at Kohl's (similar) last year, they have just the right amount of stretch to them to make them both flattering and comfortable.  I am learning to wear them with a bit more confidence especially with the little bit of leg lengthening that these cute Bandolino platform sandals (similar) seem to provide.

What about you?  Do you love white jeans?  Do you have a favorite brand?  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

xo, Patty

  2. I like the look of white jeans and the three ways you styled them. I don't own white jeans, mainly because by the time it is warm enough to wear white, it is usually too hot for me to wear jeans. I'm a wimp when it comes to summer heat!

  3. I like my white jeans as well, but fear wearing them for the same reasons you listed. I love all three, but my favorite is the first top. So cute. Keep it up...real fashion for real women. I like it.

  4. You are adorable in white jeans, Patty. Thanks for all the tips. I don't own white jeans, but do wear white Capris. Your pink tops are all pretty. I love pink too, so will have to checkout Kohl's for something pink. Thanks for the coupon too.

  6. Patty, You look good in all the outfits you put together. You know you could fold the legs up a couple of turns for a different appearance also. ...since you are young and cute. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  8. I have white jeans that I wear often and find that Riders offer the best fit for this size 14 blogger. I like how you combined them with pink.
