How to wear white jeans, two ways

how to wear white jeans

Today we're going to show you two ways to style white jeans!

Jessica: I have been looking for a good pair of white jeans...forever. I wanted them SO bad, I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to them! My problem is that I don't like paying full price for anything! When I can score amazing deals a thrift stores like these, and these, and these, I have a really hard time blowing even $30-40 on a pair of white jeans. That my toddler will promptly smear mud and french fries on.

No way am I spending $40 on a glorified french fry napkin.


So when I was chosen by Crowdtap to receive two free pairs of Old Navy white jeans, I was stoked! I've been a member of Crowdtap for about a year now and I love it! They work with brands who need consumer testing done, and match you the consumer with brand specific surveys and sampling. I love me some Old Navy, and even though I almost never go into the actual store (or buy their clothing new!) I have a ton of Old Navy clothes from thrift. I love the bright colors, decent quality, and the fact that they really fit my body well.

So Crowdtap + Old Navy sent me coupons for two completely free pairs of white jeans, one for me and one for a friend. Of course Hil and I had to go shopping!

There were soooo many choices for cut and style!

Hilary: I'll be honest.  When Jessica called me about white jeans, I may have shuddered a little.  White jeans can be SUPREMELY unflattering if in the wrong shape or size.  And as a curvy girl, jeans are hard enough to find, the thought of white jeans gave me a momentary (or longer) flutter of unconfidence.

But I figured that free anything was good and I was willing to give them a chance!

It had been a while since I'd bought anything at Old Navy, but I was super happy to find that they have so many different fits and styles of jeans now.  The white jeans had several different styles (skinny, bootcut) and different fits in each style (sweetheart, rock star, flirt).  I tried on a few different pairs and settled on the bootcut sweetheart style.  The jeans were comfortable, flattering and cute!

Here is how I styled them:

Shirt: JCPenney, Jewelry: from a vendor at the fair, Shoes: Target
I also wore them with a bright yellow shirt and loved them too!  I love that I can rock all of my brightly colored shirts with them and still look "summer-y."  And I will definitely be going back to Old Navy for my next pair of jeans.

Jessica: I knew exactly what I wanted when I walked through the doors. I know from a lot of experience trying on Old Navy jeans exactly which cut of jeans will fit my body, and I went straight to the sweetheart skinny jeans. I didn't even have to try them on! This is my favorite fit, I love that the sweetheart is higher in the back for those of us who may have a little junk in our trunks. Which I do.

Here is how I styled them:

Shirt: Target (thrifted), Vest: Victoria's Secret (a hand me down from a friend!) Jewelry: Thrifted, Shoes: JustFab
I went with more neutral basics since white is so in your face. I paired my new jeans with an olive green tunic tank, tan vest, gold jewelry and my birthday shoes from JustFab that I raved about in this post.

I've got my eye on you, Dude!
Look at my little Dude...it's like he can sense that pristine whiteness and is just itching to cover me in french fry grease and mud.

Also, looking at these pictures, I love how tan all that white is making me look! And people, I am not a tan person. I was once described as "the whitest white person I've ever met in my life."

Despite the very real possibility of them being utterly ruined by my children in the near future, I am loving my new jeans! I can't wait to wear them. Away from grubby little fingers. Thanks Old Navy!
