STYLING WHITE JEANS & PEARLS
There's a freshness that comes from juxtaposing layers of fancy pearl necklaces with casual white jeans.
If your brain is still tuned in to old-fashioned fashion advice, wearing white jeans past Labour Day might require a shift in thinking. Here's new-fashioned thinking — in our swinging sixties wearing stylish white jeans make us stand out from the crowd (in a good way!) no matter what time of year it happens to be. There's no reason to stash your white denim in the fall and winter.
Go to your wardrobe and grab your white jeans. If you don't have any, grab your coat instead and head out to buy a pair or two. Look for a mid-rise that fits in the thigh and tush. No bagging, please, and no Grandma jeans. Levi's are a good brand to start your search.
You can dress up everyday without breaking the piggy bank by repurposing your existing wardrobe. My white Levi's are from a few summers ago, and the red sweater is an old friend.
The only way to come up with inventive combinations is to try, try, try! When I get dressed in the morning, I spend a few extra minutes styling. This morning, the red sweater looked appealing so I tried it with several pieces until it felt right.
It was right, but I wanted better. I've been having fun with my mom's pearls so SNAP, the ensemble felt classic yet inventive.
Challenge yourself to go through your wardrobe with fresh eyes. Pull on your white jeans and start combining them with an array of sweaters, blouses, and jewelry to see what joy you, too, can unearth.
