The White Stuff.

I've finally taken the plunge and bought some white skinny jeans... for years, I was too scared to branch out from my trusty blue denims, and whilst I have braved both pink and teal jeans in the last eighteen months, white was not a colour I was prepared to try.

I previously thought they would be unflattering on girls like me that don't happen to be wafer thin, and would be difficult to wear with any of the clothes already residing in my overflowing wardrobes (yes, that was meant to be plural)... oh how wrong I was! 

They are perfect for summer and can be worn in umpteen different ways. If you are still undecided when it comes to white jeans, I've chosen three celebrities, all wearing white skinnies, but in three very different ways ... and because I'm just that nice, I've given a few suggestions to recreate each look in an attempt to convince you to get a pair!

1. Lauren Conrad
Head-to-toe white should be all-wrong, but actually it's all-white (get it?!) - Lauren Conrad looks amazing in this outfit!

If you'd like to recreate this look, how about this white tee from Topshop, along with tan accessories like this Nica slouchy tan bag and these sandals, both from ASOS. 

2. Millie Mackintosh

I love this look and am seriously jealous of that jacket - this vest and this orange faux-leather jacket would be great choices if you wanted to copy this outfit. A word of caution though, keep accessories neutral with this look (as Millie has done) - the brightly-coloured jacket is enough of a statement itself without a bag or pair of shoes in another loud colour.

3. Whitney Port
We established with last week's look of the week that white + pastel colours = a match made in heaven.

This Roll Sleeve Blazer and Satin Vest would look good with your white jeans. Look carefully and you'll spot some adorable flower detailing on Whitney's shoes - I've found a great copy of these heels and they're available here. This Warehouse tote would complete the look perfectly!

So there you have it, 3 great ways to work white jeans - now I insist that you go forth and reward yourself with a pair (mine were from here)!

(Nifty tip: White jeans are an absolute magnet for dirt. Make sure your white skinnies stay white, as opposed to a grubby off-white/grey, by soaking your jeans overnight in a washing-up bowl full water and a couple of drops of bleach before sticking them in the washing machine - they'll look as good as new each time you wash them!)
