Four Tricks to Looking Slim in White Jeans This Summer
White pants season is upon us, but they can be tricky to pull off if you haven’t been watching your diet very closely—and maybe growing a few extra inches.
Buy a pair with flare and stretch:
These Hudson Jeans Bootcut pants ($154)—the flare style elongates legs (especially—see next tip—with heels) and the stretch is forgiving, if you’ve had a bad food day. Or week.
We prefer a camel colored sandal with a wooden sole for the neutral color – it’s not too jarring against stark-white jeans. Wearing a heel is the quickest way we know to make legs look thinner, and, obviously, longer.
Pair with a long tank or tee:
A good rule of thumb for both leggings and white jeans – even if you are tall and thin – is to pair them with a shirt that goes a few inches past the hips. Add a cardigan or a (blue) denim jacket that’s slightly shorter for a slimming proportion.
Wear a seamless, nude thong:
The last thing you want is the unflattering lines and bulges that can come from wearing granny panties with white denim. Always go with a nude thong—or in the other direction with a pair of flesh-colored SPANX—but never full-coverage underwear.
