white jeans & tonal dressing for spring
Hi guys, long time no see! Sorry for the inactivity on the blog lately — things here have been crazy busy from trying to plan a wedding to me changing shows for work. The blog unfortunately had to take a back seat for a little bit but I finally feel like I’ve got my feet under me and I’m hitting the ground running.
So let’s talk spring style! The weather is finally taking a turn for the better here and it’s put me in the BEST mood these days. Crazy how a bit of warmth and sunshine can really motivate you!
Now, I don’t think you can talk about spring style and not mention white jeans. They are a spring staple for sure. Something about them just works in the springtime. And honestly, I’ve gone through my fair share of duds. The last thing you want is an ill-fitting pair of white jeans. Since they are so bright they really draw your eye’s attention to them, you want them to be as flattering as can be. And non see-through. My first pair were a super thin material and let me tell you – it’s not a good look. When done right, I find white jeans super chic. When done wrong — kinda cheap looking.
Pictured above I’m wearing Levi’s. I was confident in buying them because Levi’s are a tried and true brand known for their thick denim. And that works to my advantage in two ways: 1) it holds everything in and won’t sag and 2) they weren’t gonna be see-through. Do you ever find super thin jeans are quick to sag? I find they stretch out way easier and make my look bigger than I am. So I stuck to a brand I knew was gonna deliver.
Now, I’m not a super flashy person when it comes to fashion. So just having a pair of white jeans meant I was a little outside my comfort zone. I decided to dip my toes in the white jean pool in the most subtle way I could – and that was by sticking to a neutral colour palette. By sticking to neutrals, I let the jeans take the spotlight and didn’t pair them with anything that could compete. And honestly, I LOVED the outcome! For me, it stuck the perfect balance. Classic and yet fashion forward. Do you own a pair of white jeans? Would you try tonal dressing? Let me know, would love to hear from you!
