WHITE JEANS

THE GLORY OF ALL WHITE

Here are one of my favourite pieces that I've picked up from YOOX to date
CRISP, CLEAN, REFRESHING, BOLD-  all ways that you can describe an all white outfit. 

Black on black is a no brainer, but all white outfit is one of those risky things that you admire from afar and applause and commend the wearer on their ability to stay away from red wine, pasta, green juices- basically anything that will leave a big inconspicuous stain (an hour after shooting this, I did spill some juice on my pants because being a cautious eater is not really my specialty..) 
In the past, white jeans were never something that I owned and if I ever did have the urge to wear white bottoms, it would be in the form of a midi skirt, white denim skirt or a pair of wide legged trousers. Not so much for being at high risk of stains, but rather white jeans (as so stated by numerous magazines and random forums) seemed to be one of those things that were deemed unflattering and reserved for people with stick-thin model limbs. Since then, I have stopped reading those articles and avoided 'the most flattering pieces for your body' forums and rather tried things on myself to see what works and what doesn't for my body

I picked these Acne jeans from YOOX, and even though I told myself all those years ago that I would never wear straight legged jeans, I'm not going to lie when I say that I really dig them. And yes, white jeans don't really have the security of slimming you down and what not that black jeans seem to have, but corny as it is, it all comes down to confidence. Really I swear. No one is going to be looking at your legs in your new white jeans and think "oh those are unflattering"- trust me on this.

So when you are tossing up the decision to wear all white or not or buy that pair of white jeans that first come to mind, I say just do it. Life's short and sometimes you have to risk it for the biscuit.
