Stylish Simplicity – White Jeans

Today is Festa della Repubblica in Italy.  It’s similar to July 14th in France or the 4th of July in the United States of America.   It’s a three day weekend.  While most of my friends went out of town, I stayed behind in the city.

I’ve just returned from checking in on my Anguilla project.  Before I left, the weather in Rome was awful… constant rain and chilly.

Now, summer is here.  The days are getting longer and folks have busted out their white jeans.

I used to avoid white jeans because I thought my thighs were too “thick” for them.  I now know it’s all about the cut and what I’m wearing as a top.

I love this summer look.  It’s so stylish and simple.  Below are five favorites:

The one, the only, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.


The lovely Garance Doré photographed by her man, Scott Schuman (aka The Satorialist).


Zoe Saldana.  Really like the color of her blazer.



Geraldine Saglio from FRENCH VOGUE.  Those shoes!

    Arlene, that’s a really great point, “’s all about the cut and what [you’re] wearing as a top”. White pants don’t have to be the enemy for thick-thighed women. :)

    • Yes, there are other items that are NOT flattering for my thighs. Other than the tennis skorts (they are the most comfortable items to play in) I avoid them!
