Nothing looks as cool and relaxed as a pair of white jeans on a beautiful spring/summer day. They go with everything and make even a basic tee look chic and sophisticated. They are also a challenge when it comes to fit, but we’ve fixed that by rounding up our favorite, most figure flattering pairs (that aren’t see through) in stores today, in all sizes.
1. KUT from the Kloth ‘Chrissy’ Flare Leg Jeans, $89; 2. Paige Skyline Straight Optic White, $179; 3. NYDJ ‘Hayley’ Stretch Twill Straight Leg Jeans (Regular & Petite), $114; 4. Eileen Fisher Organic Skinny Ankle Jeans,
KUT makes a great jean, and with an under $100 price point, they can’t be beaten. They make especially fantastic white jeans, with perfect pocket placement and a comfortable waistband.
Avoid skinny white jeans as they tend to look like leggings, instead, go for a narrow straight leg. They will give you the same effect as a skinny, but look more sophisticated. Paige jeans are my favorite, by far, especially if you have long legs.
If you like your jeans to have a lot of stretch, look no further than NYDJ. They are structured, yet comfortable and come in all sizes in petite, regular and plus. Avoid their cropped and cuffed ankle jeans like the plague – they look horrible on just about everyone. Their long jeans, however, fit perfectly and look great with everything.
Eileen Fisher Organic Skinny Ankle Jeans,
Specific for plus sizes, these Eileen Fisher jeans are flattering, comfortable and on sale. Eileen Fisher pieces are pricey, but they wear like iron.
