Wasn’t yesterday’s Style-A-Friend post with Ali-Shaun so fun?! She is such a great sport to participate and I know your kind comments and compliments really made her feel good! Maybe if I bribe her, she’ll come back and make another appearance?! It was actually easy finding things she looked great in and I want to take her to more stores!
Is it too early to start talking about white jeans?! I hope not because I’ve dedicated this entire post to them! I tried on about 15 pairs to help take the guesswork out of shopping for white jeans and I really hope this post is helpful!
If you want the Cliff Notes version (this is for YOU, Marianna!) here are the White Jean Winners!
BEST Overall = PAIGE Verdugo Ankle Skinny Jeans
BEST Budget Friendly = LOFT Modern Skinny
BEST Distressed = J Brand Low Rise Crop Skinny
BEST High Rise = Madewell 9″ High Rise Skinny (if that visible side seam doesn’t bother you!)
The review below is listed from least to most expensive and I also styled up a few of the white jeans to give you outfit ideas!
PROS: Inexpensive, comfortable, nice weight
CONS: Back pockets sit low, pockets show
FIT REVIEW: TTS (25) Comfortable mid rise that felt better the longer they were on. They’re supposed to be ankle, but on me they’re pretty long, but it looks cute to cuff the ankle.
THUMBS UP! If you remove the pockets- I hate when they show.
PROS: Inexpensive, opaque, super soft
CONS: Tight jegging that buckle around at the tush and knee
FIT REVIEW: TTS (00) These jeans are super long and skinny, so short girls will definitely need alterations. In this picture, I rolled the left leg under about 4″ so you can envision how they’d look with alterations.
THUMBS DOWN: Too cheap looking/feeling
V-Neck Tee (TTS, XS)
PROS: Budget friendly, opaque, jean material with a little bit of stretch, real pockets that aren’t too long AND don’t show through!
CONS: Slight gaping in the back waist
FIT REVIEW: TTS (25)
PRICE: 40% off of $189 = $113
PROS: High rise, super comfortable and soft, faux front pockets, raw edge hem (easy to cut if too long)
CONS: Side seam is visible
FIT REVIEW: TTS (25) the high rise makes you look extra long and lean. About 5 inches too long on me.
THUMBS DOWN: Because I just can’t get past that thick side seam showing.
PROS: Very comfortable, opaque, slimming, highrise – gives the illusion of longer legs, short pockets, fit like a glove at the waist, feel like a real jean – not a jegging, one of the best fitting jeans in this post!
CONS: Side seam is slightly visible
FIT REVIEW: TTS (00) A little bit long on me.
THUMBS UP OVERALL: I LOVE these jeans, just wish that side seam was less visible!
PROS: High rise, raw edge hem, super cute from behind, pocket placement is perfect
CONS: Ill fitting (too baggy) in the front by the zipper.
FIT REVIEW: TTS (0)
PROS: Perfectly placed distressing, frayed hem, stretchy and super comfy, fit like a glove
FIT REVIEW: TTS (25) They’re supposed to be ankle, but on me they’re full length. I think it’s quite cute to cuff the ankle.
THUMBS UP! Best distressed jean that even older women can rock!
PROS: Opaque, faux front pockets, super comfortable, raw edge hem
CONS: Expensive, Lower rise
FIT REVIEW: TTS (25)
THUMBS UP! Great jegging type white jean if you don’t mind a lower rise!
PROS: Like a cross between a jean and jegging, very comfortable, faux front pockets, opaque, stretchy, cute white button
FIT REVIEW: TTS (25), mid-rise, a little long on me, but look cute cuffed. One reviewer said: “I’m 5’4″, 140 lbs, and have a booty. Size 27 was made for me!”
THUMBS UP! Worth the splurge!
PROS: Totally opque. Silky and smooth and feel amazing on. SUPER WHITE. Faux front pockets, cute back pockets.
FIT REVIEW: TTS (25) These aren’t even a jegging, they are more like a white legging. A little long on me so I cuffed them.
THUMBS UP! Especially if you like a super smooth jegging white jean.
PROS: Feel like real jean, not a jegging, sturdy weight fabric with a bit of stretch, but not too much. Totally opaque. Pockets are perfectly placed with artfully placed stitching to make your booty look good!!
FIT REVIEW: TTS (25) and I had the waist taken in a tad. They’re a mid-rise and the “cigarette” cut means they aren’t super skinny.
