White jeans over 40? White jeans are fabulous at any age! how to wear all white outfit
Today, I decided to dig out a pair of white jeans that I have not yet worn.
They have been glaring at me everytime I opened my wardrobe at home so I decided to bring them on holiday to force myself to wear them.
Why have I not worn them?
a. They are white, my skin is blue/white…will I look ill??
b. They are ‘girlfriend’ fit…too sloppy??
c. They are cropped…my skinny ankles exposed again?!
d. I worry about getting grubby…. a dirt magnet to children, dogs and food?
I decided that something needed to be done to break them in so I went for a comfortable and very casual look. I didn’t want to feel stiff and awkward. I also wanted to stay away from the white jean/breton tee combination, so I bit the bullet and went all-white… with a hint of grey in a jumper (thrown over my shoulders as a casual cover-up and emergency stain cover). I added a bit of fun with some cute JuJu jelly shoes.
I remember jellies from the first time round.
Back in the day, I really wanted a bright yellow pair but my mum said they would “Waste your feet” and marched me to Clarks… so I settled for a Jelly bag instead.
She was right though, they used to be stiff and sore, I remember my friend’s feet covered in plasters. Thankfully these modern ones are much more comfortable, soft and pliable. Pretty cool and quirky too!
White on white….a dirt magnet? Surprisingly not! I remained slitter-free, all day.
Do you think we should obey the rule that tells us we should avoid trends that we remember the first time round?
Would you wear all-white?
