white denim for summer is a no-brainer, but white denim for winter is just as chic. in my humble opinion, white denim belongs in every woman’s closet as it can be worn 365 days a year, making it a wardrobe workhorse. yes, the old rule of retiring white denim at labor day and resurrecting them at memorial day has gone by the wayside. but many of you still might be wondering what to wear with white denim? or think white denim is too troublesome to keep clean. then stay tuned to today’s post, where we will tackle both questions.
first, there are many different white denim styles: cropped denim, cropped flare denim, skinny, wide-leg, ankle length, straight-leg, and bootcut. for today’s post i’m wearing high-waist staight-leg from Talbots. style tip: size up one size for a pair that grazes your frame instead of hug. for reference i have a size 8.
this past weekend i drove to our family beach home in Tybee which is a hop, skip, and jump away from Savannah one of my favorite cities of all-time loaded with history, ghosts, and an eclectic food scene. of course, we headed into the city one night for a culinary experience at The Collins Quarter.
many of you may know that Savannah is the first headquarters for The Girl Scouts founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low. i have such fond memories as a young girl and pre-teen heading off to Girl Scout camp for the weekend or an entire week toasting s’mores, singing campfire songs, and riding horses. the Girl Scouts still hold their annual Girl Scout cookie program that helps fund life-changing experiences full of adventure just like i experienced all those years ago. if you loved Savannah Smiles i’m sorry to disappoint you as they’ve been discontinued. not to worry as my all-time favorite Thin Mints is still going strong!
if you fret over keeping your white denim clean, i have two tips. the first is hydrogen peroxide, which many of you have stored in your medicine chest. simply soak a cotton ball with hydrogen peroxide and scrub away at any stubborn stain. it works! the second tip is to soak your white denim in Oxy Clean Stain Removal. both methods will keep your white denim in pristine condition. don’t forget to wear the proper color lingerie, which should match your skin tone. i always wear nude-colored panties with white denim.
so what to wear with white denim when the temps are downright freezing? start with a cashmere turtleneck (sold out, similar here). this black sweater has been on style repeat all winter long, and it looks fantastic with white denim. for an extra layer of warmth, i reached for a chic houndstooth peacoat (sold out, similar here, here, and here) last seen here. a pair of suede booties with block heels kept my tootsies warm, and i added a belt (old, similar here) for the finishing touch.
here are a few more ways to wear white denim in winter.
