SPRING SHOPPING: White Jeans Done Right
1. Dries Van Noten dip-dyed jeans (available through farfetch.com) 2. Old Navy linen-blend shirt 3. Nine West "Enning" (now available for pre-order from NineWest.com!) 4. vintage Pierre Cardin sunglasses 5. vintage Chanel chain belt 6. Yves Saint Laurent "Roady" Bag
Even though the actual calendar says spring has barely sprung, in Fashionland it's a different story...& high time you started planning your summer wardrobe! White is a huge trend this season, and we've been totally enamored with this pair of dip-dyed white jeans with a glamorous wide legged cut from Dries van Noten since they strode down the runway. SOME TIPS: Unless you're tall, don't rock wide-legged pants with a flat...unless you just want to look wider. Which you don't. So repeat after us: The wider the pant, the taller the heel. Which needn't be a matchy-matchy white; in fact, pairing white with shades of ivory, eggshell & off-white looks softer & more sophisticated (not to mention a tad easier to keep clean). A spunky chain belt adds some graphic punch, and the soft blue of the top looks casually chic so you don't look like you're trying too hard, while stealthily highlighting the extremely cool dip-dying on the jeans.
