I have ordered three pairs of white jeans in my life. Total pairs of white jeans I have owned: zero. Last summer, I gave up on finding a pair and decided to face the bleak reality that I for so long refused to acknowledge: white jeans just didn’t work on me.
BUT THEN! The other day, aimlessly browsing Gap before meeting a girlfriend for drinks, I found a pair of relaxed fitting white jeans. I put them on, despite a rather loud voice in my head telling me I was wasting my time, and was shocked to find that they worked; they don’t cling, they don’t highlight bumps, their slightly slouched look is effortless and tomboy-cool. And while I’ve always assumed loose fitting white jeans wouldn’t flatter, they actually are super slimming, and somehow make my legs look longer.
Who would have thought! I walked out without buying them because I’m hoping for a sale, but I can’t wait to bring those bad boys home.
