Oh yes, you see right – I’ve finally jumped on the white jean bangwagon!
When I first saw white denim popping up again, I wanted to hide myself in the nearest wardrobe and not come out til at least A/W14. I haven’t braved white jeans since I was 16 and had a pair of white skinnies which, contrary to making me look cool and indie like I hoped at the time, made my hips look about 8 feet wide.
7 years later and my hips are the same, but this more relaxed fit is much more forgiving. I fell in love with this boyfriend fit distressed pair on the Boohoo website a couple of weeks ago, and finally flung them into my online basket on payday.
I do completely love them, though there is a bit of an issue with sizing I’d say – I ordered the 8 and they’re far too baggy for me at the waist. It can be fixed with a belt as I have here, but the detailing is a really pretty rose gold (as you can see above without the belt) that I don’t really want to cover all the time so I’m debating exchanging them for the smaller size – though the thought that I could EVER be a size 6 in jeans in the real world is ludicrous, so I would definitely recommend sizing down if you buy these yourself. It’s also worth noting that I’ve rolled these up a lot, though I was expecting that being only 5’2.
This cat body is from Abandon Ship Apparel; I actually bought it way back in December at the Clothes Show but haven’t worn it too much as I always saw it as more of a summer item. Because er, that’s when the Satanic kittens are known to come out to play? They don’t seem to sell the body on their website anymore but you can pick up this equally fetching pair of kitten leggings if you so wish.
What do you all think of this outfit? Have you jumped on the white jeans trend yet?
