Welcome back to What The Trend! I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted, but what better time to reconnect with old friends than around the holidays?!
So today’s topic is something that I have been noticing that has been breaking the fashion rules. Wearing white jeans in the winter. So like any fashion loving styling abiding citizen, my initial reaction to seeing this was “WHATTT in the style world are you doing! The style gods are shunning you!…..or are they?” After letting this trend settle in, my eyes adjusted. Seeing many bloggers and style icons pull of this look with a classic pair of OTK boots, my style rule book readjusted.
Check out this babe rocking winter white like a pro! Winter white can be one of the hardest looks to pull off. I believe this look takes some serious pre-planning. Finding just the right shade of white to complement the outfit is the key to this trend.
Blogger, Sydne Style, is rocking this look. The monochrome blend of black and white becomes a classic look rather than an off season faux pas!
And finally A Southern Drawl blogger, Grace Wainwright, found the perfect shade of suade to pair with this transitional look into the colder months.
Feeling style inspired? Me too, until I attempted this look and felt my fashion genes (see what I did there? 😉 ) had betrayed all my trendy knows.
So, if you are thinking of attempting this trend, here are my final tips on rocking the winter white jean:
- Find the Perfect white jean for YOU. Finding jeans can already be a daunting process so if you don’t already own a pair that you know look killer on you, maybe this trend isn’t worth spending the money on the 2-3 times you may be wearing it this winter.
- TRY IT ON BEFORE you are rushing around with 5 minutes in the morning and decide this is the time to explore your trend setter side. This could lead to panic and late Monday morning havoc.
- If you don’t have the pairings, this look could easily look like a mistake. Tall boots, suede materials, a cozy sweater are all things that pull this look into a winter vibe. Without these things put together, the jeans will stand out and begin to look out of season, making the style gods right….and I sure hate when other people are right.
- Have fun & follow your inspiration! If you see a blogger, friend or style icon rock this trend follow what they do! Observe how they pulled the look together and then compare it to your own closet. If you don’t own those excessively expensive Stewart Weitzman OTK boots, don’t kill yourself forcing the trend.
Okay so to sum things up, this trend is a style RISK! I am all for supporting breaking the style rules, but be true to you and your closet! I can say as a babe on a budget that this one isn’t worth breaking the bank for.
So, if the jeans fit, rock ’em!
