I’m all about wearing white denim year round. I haven’t always been that way, but in the past few years I’ve been totally embracing it. I swapped out my typical white jeans for a pair of white corduroys for the winter. However, I’m ready to go back to my jeans. The problem? My old white jeans have seen better days.
I think white denim is totally different than regular blue denim. I wash my regular jeans frequently, which is something you’re not technically supposed to do, but I like fresh-out-of-the-wash jeans even if they don’t last as long. However, with white jeans, I feel like I have to wash them after every wear, especially in the city where it’s gross. I remember putting my white jeans away for the season and thinking they looked dingy. When I pulled them out last week in preparation for my trip to Florida, they were looking downright gross. Plus all the washing had clearly done it’s damage.
I was going to go with a pair of my favorite Madewell jeans in white. I decided to do look around first. There are tons of different white jeans options:
I ended up going with J. Crew’s Stretch Toothpick. I went off of a friend’s recommendation; she informed me that they revamped the denim. I was skeptical, but they really rock. The stretch seems like just the right balance where I can eat at Chipotle and still sit in my jeans… without them getting baggy.
Do you have a favorite pair of white denim?
