With temperatures topping the high 40 degrees Celsius in Australia it’s natural that we would gravitate to wearing lighter colours to stay cooler. Wearing heavy or darker colours seem to entice the heat to cuddle you close and make you so sweaty that it looks like you just showered fully clothed. Well, in this blog post we will discuss how to keep cool and stylish with the unofficial uniform of Queensland in summer, white jeans. Keep reading to find out more.
Finding the right jeans
The style of jeans you like might depend on trends or personal taste. Whether it be boyfriend jeans, mum jeans, straight leg jeans, ¾ jeans or distressed jeans there is a multitude of styles at different price points available. My personal favourites have been super stretch straight leg, high-waisted straight leg jeans and cropped jeans which are all available at K-mart. The reason I choose these is in part due to my size, size 14, but also due to my height, 1m60cm (5’2’’). So many styles of jeans and pants, in fact, are simply too long and make me look like I’ve pinched a grown-up’s jeans for dress-ups. Often the waistband is far too wide leaving a gap around the waist so big you could fit a Pomeranian in the back of my jeans! The added plus of this brand is that they are affordably priced.
Jeans + ? = ?
White jeans are versatile summer wardrobe pieces for both formal and informal occasions day or night. Paired with a tank top, flat sandals, sunglasses, and a bucket bag they are casual chic. Paired with a buttoned-down blouse, blazer, strappy sandals, sunglasses, and an embellished bag they are formal sophistication. With a designer blouse, embellished heels, and a clutch they are perfect for evening. Below you’ll find some options for each category.
