How to lighten up your denim

White jeans …

are one of those wardrobe staples everyone must have.  I know, I know, trying on and choosing the right white denim can be VERY tricky.  Over the years I’ve likened it to trying on swimsuits … ugh. Sometimes, depending on the dressing room lighting, certain angles can look a bit distorted compared to how we look in natural light.  But, when you find the right pair, and you feel great in them, nothing else matters — except for that must-have nude thong!

Why are white jeans so important?

White jeans not only go with everything in your closet, they instantly say Spring!  And after a long winter, what more could we want? Presumably your white denim from last year was on constant repeat, which is exactly why you should add another pair or two to your Spring lineup.  Purchasing new white jeans is in the same category as freshening up our white tees: you just have to. With over 250 options on the Nordstrom website, I’m here to guide you to the best-selling styles as well as give you a little inspo.  Read on!
