Ask Sydne: Can Anyone Wear White Denim?

Do you think there is an age limit to wearing white denim? —@shannonmar

There most certainly is not an age limit when it comes to white jeans! Like any denim, it just depends on the style you choose. I went to the online retailer to show how you can rock white denim at any age. Here are my top picks:

1. Teens
When you’re an active teenager a cropped jean can be a really great choice. They look equally adorable with oxford flats as they do with a wooden heel. You can also get away with ripped styles when you’re younger, so why not embrace it?
My pick: Les Halles The Straw Ankle Legging Jeans

2. 20s
Whether you’re in college or starting off your career, a classic skinny jean is heaven sent. Wear it with flats to class and a sexy pair of heels for a night out. They also look chic for work under a boyfriend blazer.
My pick: J Brand 10″ Ankle Skinny Jeans

3. 30s
I’m so happy the boot cut is back in style. It’s so incredibly flattering, which is helpful when it comes to white denim. A mid-rise with a little flare make it easier to wear the lighter wash. You can pair it with a crisp button down and pumps for Casual Friday at the office or a cardigan set and sandals for a dinner date.
My pick: Citizens of Humanity Amber Mid Rise Boot Cut Jeans

4 40s+
A 70s style high rise works best for younger bodies or long and lean types. But a relaxed high rise, with room in the leg and hip area, is flattering for more womanly figures. Look for wide-leg styles with a higher inseam.
My pick: Joe’s Jeans High Rise Wide Leg Jeans

    Hi Sydne! I loved your post about white jeans. I actually have a question about gray jeans. I bought a pair of gray skinny jeans back in December and I have loved wearing them as an alternative to regular blue jeans, but I don’t know if it’s appropriate to wear them during the spring/summer time. So, is it appropriate to wear gray jeans during the spring/summer time? Or is gray just for fall and winter? Or, are gray jeans not appropriate at any time!?

      You can certainly wear them in summer! That’s the beauty about jeans, they work all year round, even in gray 🙂
