How to lighten up your denim?

It’s time to switch things up and make room for this season’s new trending color: écru! This off white or cream-colored hue is the perfect lighter color to wear right now. It’s very sophisticated, especially when paired with a simple black cashmere tee. Many of you know I popped into the Everlane store on a recent trip to LA, and I picked up this pair of écru denim for only $78! The “cheeky” straight leg is high waisted and flattering, and based on the reviews, I’m not the only one who loves them! I also grabbed this matching tee, and a short sleeved simple cashmere tee, which I’m wearing in this recent post.

 

But don’t forget the always-classic white

White jeans are one of those classic wardrobe staples everyone must own. Not only do they 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 your white tees: you just have to 🙂 But, when you find the right pair, and you feel great in them, nothing else matters — except for that must-have nude thong! 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!

P.S. I’ve been working really hard on updating all my Pinterest boards, and I’d love you to check them out and let me know what you think. And, if you’re new around here and want to stay up to date on all things stylish and the hot new items we ALL need, then subscribe here and never miss a post!

How to wear white denim

White denim is EASY. Wear with your favorite denim jacket (this one is new), a graphic tee like this or this, and espadrilles — check these out!

Throw on a breezy blouse like this pretty one, a Spring jacket like this one, and must-have mules like these.

Or, simply, add a tee, a blazer like this all-time favorite and strappy sandals like these.

    1. You are so loyal!!! What about a Levi Icon Wedgie or Mother – I think it’s the hustler but I need to check.

  2. I love the blouse you’re wearing in the top right picture. Could you provide the source/a link. Thank you.

    1. I sent you an email, hoping you received it! The blouse is by Paige and is sold out, but there’s a similar one this year called “Kelly”
