With temps on the rise, it’s time to update our wardrobe with some key pieces for spring, including a great pair of white denim. However, we all know that this can be one of the greatest challenges EVER! Undaunted, we set out to find the best of the best, and found three options, for every budget and body type out there. Here are our top picks that we love, all for different reasons:
#1- CLASSIC – AG Legging Ankle
If you’re looking to invest in one classic pair of white denim that make you feel great, these are it! These are the AG Legging Ankle and they have long been our go-to. They are a higher price point at $188, but the fit and quality is amazing. They have a bit of stretch to them, so they are really comfortable too. With a classic grey top and simple jewelry, this is a great wear-to-work style.
#2- RELAXED – Gap Best Girlfriend Jeans
This next pair is our pick for best relaxed style. They are the “best girlfriend jean” from the Gap, and when we tried these on we just couldn’t resist buying a pair—they are THAT comfortable. We also love the price point at just under $70. They are mid-rise, relaxed through the hip and thigh, and have great pocket placement that’s really flattering to the backside. These are really great for all body types, especially those of us with curves. As a general rule, when you’re buying white denim, you go up a size, and that is the case with these jeans if you want them to be a little slouchy. We styled these for a casual, running around, gettin’ it done look.
#3- DISTRESSED – Levi’s 711 Skinny Ankle Jeans
These are our pick for best distressed style, which has been really on trend the past few seasons. The denim has a bit of a heavier weight, with just the right amount of stretch, and it gives a really smooth look to the denim. Levi’s are really making a comeback in a lot of higher end boutiques! They’ve updated their styles, and these in particular have rave reviews online; in fact, in one fashion poll, these rank even higher than all of the expensive, designer brands. We styled these with a really pretty, floral top from one of our favorite boutiques, Willa June. We love pairing distressed denim with something really feminine. It’s a great juxtaposition, perfect for date night or a night out on the town with girlfriends.
That’s it, friends! White denim is a GO for spring, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Happy May Day!!
