The Perfect White Jeans

Friday, May 9, 2014

I never believed myself to be a "white pants" person. I always thought they looked terrible on me but great on everyone else. Particularly my friend Erica who makes wearing white look easy as pie. Her spot-on white pants ensembles inspired me to go on a day-long search over spring break to find the most perfect pair of white pants the city of Chicago had to offer.

I wanted something that was long enough to be pants (not capris) on me, which is hard with my height, and I also wanted them to not be lumpy and see-through. This sounds like a lot to ask of a pair of white pants, but I demanded perfection. 

After trying on what felt like a million pairs I found these lightly coated Zara jeans. The coating made them smooth and less see-through than the average white pants and gave them a little thickness. The genius of these pants really lies in the color. While they appear to be chalk white here they have just a tinge of winter white in them so that these can be worn year round! Amazing, right?

Consider me officially converted to a white pants wearer!
