I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest fan of white jeans, though sometimes an outfit just calls for them. The trick for me is all about balance, and finding a way to disguise my pear shape. Long over lean is one of my tried and true strategies for dealing with a pear shape, which is one of the many reasons I love kimonos and long cardigans. Learn more about dealing with a pear shape here. I shared a couple of ideas for white pants in this blog post. As I mentioned, white pants or jeans are a way to add instant refreshment to an outfit.
My first outfit is a pair of white jeans and my favorite graphic tee from Ruby’s Rubbish – available here – (I’ve had it for years) styled with a colorful kimono. Kimonos are such a fun way to add a burst of happy color to a summer outfit! Purchase similar styles here:
The second outfit is a remix of one I styled last summer. The white lace skirt gets a fun refresh with a denim jacket and leopard print belt. It’s a fun way to feel ‘dressed up’ without feeling stuffy. We’ll just call it informally formal! Whatcha think? Purchase similar styles here:
Another outfit featuring a kimono and bright yellow top (purchased last year). I absolutely love, love, love kimonos in the summertime y’all! You can wear them with dresses, shorts, or even as a swimsuit cover-up. The happy colors add a fun pop to the neutral white pants. Purchase similar styles here:
And now for a few fun extras. White and silver are instantly cooling colors – white shoes, handbags and jewelry add a light touch to any outfit. I’m loving this summer’s straw handbags!
