Styling your white denim!
White jeans have long been a summer staple, however they can often be hard to wear. Never is it more important to get a good fitting jean than with a white denim, get it wrong and they can highlight all of your worst features, but get it right and they can be the perfect summer piece for the unpredictable British weather, giving you a summer look whilst keeping you a little warmer than a summer dress.
For the past few seasons we've seen trousers move away from being super skinny and in to a more relaxed, often wider legged style, something we think means that so many more people than before can wear white jeans, For those 'pear shaped' among us (including me!) these new fits of jeans mean we to can join in on the white jean look.
This season we're stocking two styles of white jean from our favourite denim brand Paige. Now, if you haven't given Paige a go already let us tell you why they've been so popular as a denim brand. The softness of the denim is unlike any other we've come across during our many years of buying, which means they are the comfiest jeans we've ever owned! They use their exclusive Transcend denim fabric to ensure their denim not only has just the right amount of stretch, but also doesn't loose shape with wear. This means the jeans wash well and last without losing their style.
The Mayslie jogger jean has been a super popular shape here for many seasons and is one of Paige's bestselling jeans, and this season we are stocking it in a fab white denim. This style is great for a modern and relaxed slant on the white jean look. They are ankle length so look great teamed with crisp white trainers and an American Vintage tee or knit. A perfect style for day to day, casual looks, the relaxed fit of these jeans makes them a flattering shape.
We're also stocking the fantastic 'Amber' fit in a white denim. These are a classic straight shape which is particularly flattering for those who are more pear shaped, a great length and a gorgeously lightweight denim this style looks fab dressed down with a cashmere knit and trainers or dressed up with a beautiful silk blouse (our Dea Kudibal and Primrose Park blouses look fab with these jeans!)
Here we've put together a few outifts to show you how you can wear your white denim for a more casual day to day look, perfect for this time of year when the sun is shining but it's not quite warm enough for those summer dresses!
The Maisley denim jogger £255
The Amber straught £235
Here we're teamed our white denim with a truly beautiful Batik print top from Bellerose, this lightweight, floaty blouse has beautiful puff sleeve detail, we think it's one of those great tops that you can wear both in the daytime and on an evening out by simply changing up your accessories. The rich blue tones really dazzle when paired with white denim. Bellerose Top £165. Marc Cain slides £175
A relaxed and classic look, we've teamed our white denim here with a Paul Smith shirt, this is a truly beautiful Paul Smith shirt with all the attention to detail you would expect from this favourite British designer, it has the most gorgeous button detail on the back to give it that extra something special. Paul Smith shirt £225
We love paler blues teamed with white for a gorgeous summer look. This Marc Cain shirt has beautiful ruffle detailing to really set off the look. Marc Cain Blouse £175
Gingham is a huge hit again this season, we think this shirt is a great way of giving nod to the trend without going too 'Little House on the Prairie' with a smocked dress. The white jeans really give the print a lift for a summer look. Weekend by MaxMara shirt £165
Navy and white is a gorgeous classic look, we love the added attention to detail on this Marc Cain top, it's one of those easy to wear pieces just perfect for summer. Marc Cain blouse £179
Our beautiful printed silk tunics from Dea Kudibal are great to wear on their own, but if you're a little more reserved about baring your legs, we think teaming them with white denim is a super chic way to wear them.
Now, we know we're talking about white denim in this blog post, but we just had to share with you these other two super special Paige denim pieces. We don't think you'll have ever felt a softer denim jacket than this Paige one (we know we haven't!) It's one of those wardrobe pieces you'll have for years, and this one is a great shorter shape so absolutely perfect worn over dresses. Denim jacket £260
The Anessa denim jumpsuit was a huge hit in blue denim when we had it earlier in the year, the shape is just amazing and it has become a real favourite in our wardrobes as it is one of those pieces that makes you look put together without even having to think about it. So, we were so pleased when they brought it out in this beautiful dusty pink colour. Wear it layered over a white tee with trainers or dress up as they;ve done here. Trust us, it will be a much loved piece in your wardrobe (but hurry as despite the fact it has only just arrived in store, we have just two left!) Anessa jumpsuit £290
