I hope you are all keeping well.
What is up with the weather lately? Are we going to have 4 glorious months of summer or just one week? Only time will tell but I plan to make the most of it. Particularly when it comes to my wardrobe.
With that in mind, when I think of the summer my mind automatically goes to white jeans. There can be a lot of flaws when it comes to white jeans:
- See through
- Pockets can sometimes be visible through the jeans
- Panty lines
White jeans can be a saviour, especially in Ireland when early May feels more like October. Right now, the days are long and bright, so black jeans begin to feel a little stale, but the breeze will cut through you so the sturdiness of denim is still preferable to high summer’s lightweight linens. But there are pitfalls. Anything white shouldn’t be too tight. The cut you choose in a pair of white denims will often differ from those you wear in a blue, indigo or black wash. White skinnies smartened up with heels just feels a little too noughties now.
For a more modern vibe, go for a slim leg rather than a skinny, and wear with trainers and a deconstructed shirt. They feel modern and fresh and are an easier way to work heels into your outfit if you’re not a flat shoe devotee. You can afford to vamp up your look a little when wearing denim culottes because the fluidity of the wide-leg will balance out a fitted top, or a cropped top if you’re brave enough. Great style is so much about balance and clever use of contrasts.
