White jeans are a summertime staple. They are crisp, clean and go with just about anything. Pair them with an oxford shirt (collar popped, of course) for a day out wine tasting, or wear them for an evening dinner with aÂ cute peplum topÂ (with heels,Â bien sur).
Some people aren’t fans of white pants. We get it — they can be too sheer, or are just simply a magnet for stains. The key is to find the right pair.Â Choose a style that suits your shape, whether it’s cropped, bootcut or wide-leg, and then take some precautions: Take them to a tailor and have the pockets cut out and sewn down to avoid sloppy bulges, and opt for a sturdier fabric that isn’t translucent. Lastly,Â carry a stain pen in your bagÂ to treat any marinara mess as soon as it happens.
We took thisÂ slim-fit pair from ZaraÂ for a test run to see how many different ways we could style them onÂ Black Voices intern Michelle Marques. Plus, 50 celebrities show us how to wear white jeans.
