I can’t for the life of me understand why black clothes are associated with being badass. Black clothes say, “I’m terrified of stains and pit marks.” White, on the other hand, is for real daredevils. Nothings says, “I ain’t afraid of no down-pour, dirty subway seat, or steaming bowl of spaghetti and meatballs” quite like white clothing. Even when it comes to fighting, ever notice that karate uniforms are white? If you kick-ass with precision, there’s no need for a street-fighting outfit that camouflages sweat and blood, right? True rebels don’t even wear dark denim; they just throw their cares to the wind as they hop into a pair of white jeans. Here’s how to wear white jeans like a cutting-edge fashionista…
White Jeans + A Sophisticated Crop Top
I don’t know about you, but I wear white jeans all year long. That said, summer is the season of white denim for most folk. I recently invested in this black American Apparel crop top (above, $32), and while I’ll wear it like I am in the above photo with bare arms in the upcoming summer months, I’m already rocking it with white jeans and a black blazer.
White Jeans + A Red Kimono
The best way to make your white jeans pop is by pairing them with a bold colour on top. This chiffon kimono by H&M ($17.95) looks killer with white denim, especially when worn with a white or red bralet underneath. You’ll look risque and innocent at the same time – that’s the beauty of white jeans.
White Jeans + Black Leather
Make like a biker babe and wear your white jeans with a black leather jacket, complete with tassels, like this look-at-me piece by Kate Moss for Top Shop. Who else but Kate Moss could take tassels this far? You can – that’s who! – by pairing them with white denim.
White Jeans + Frilly Boho Top
To look totally footloose and fancy-free, opt for white denim paired with a Coachella-worthy tank, like this Zara Combined Frilly Top ($59). It’s feminine enough to wear with a homemade daisy chain, and hardcore enough to sport while venturing into the outdoor music festival mosh pit.
White Jeans + A Harley Davidson Tank
Unless you’re Taylor Swift and/or you’re dating a Kennedy, there’s no need to do the throwback nautical look of pairing white jeans with a navy and white striped boat-neck top. This summer, add a little edge to your white jeans by pairing them with a Harley Davidson tank. Go ahead, ride the look right on through past Labour Day, too – you daredevil, you.
