Did you know men love white denim on women? Of course I can’t speak for all guys, but part of the reason I started blogging was to share trends, tips and style secrets. I’m always listening in (non-creepily) on men and women’s conversations when I’m out in public and I pay attention to what styles men think ‘look hot’ on women. After doing a fair amount of white denim research throughout the years, I concluded this is one style staple men love on women.
After just finding the perfect pair of white jeans; I couldn’t wait to wear them yesterday out with Jakob on our date at the museum of modern art in Zürich. Here’s my 3 Tips to rocking white denim…
<Sunday Date at the Museum ~ Chagall art exhibition in Zürich Switzerland>
1. What to Wear with White Denim – (The possibilities are endless) I went to the extreme with a neon blouse & pumps, but this spring pairing black and white is everywhere. Also try any pastel, neutral or striped nautical top with white denim. Avoid halter tops, spaghetti straps, or any tank too revealing. It hits a little too close to Snooki & JWoww style.
2. Forget the Rules ~ If you feel like wearing white pants before Memorial Day, go for it, unless it’s raining. Then you’re just asking for trouble.
3. How to Wear White Denim with Confidence ~ The key is in the fabric. Choose white jeans very carefully and always try them on! Check out all angles in the mirror. Many fabrics are not forgiving so look for a thick, stretchy denim blend (these are 98% cotton). If you still don’t feel comfortable, you’re not alone. Did you know the creator of Spanx, Sara Blakely, invented Spanx because she hated the way her butt looked in white pants?
<Style SideNote> After finding a Dolce and Gabbana outlet Saturday with major deals, I was so excited! There’s not a TJMaxx or Marshalls in sight here in Switzerland and I think it’s important to be realistic. Today, Gwenyth Paltrow’s fashion & lifestyle site GOOP was slammed for being out-of-touch with women for posting her ‘Spring Fashion Must-Haves’ totaling over $450K. See the story here on my FB fan page here.

So why do guys like women in white jeans? According to my research, white denim is eye-catching, tan enhancing, plus crisp and clean in the summer. White denim stands out in a sea of blue jeans and is generally a ‘fashion risk‘ so wearing it can reflect self-confidence. White jeans also present the possibility of a high-maintenance woman which can be initially alluring. Right or Wrong, what do you think about white denim?
