Who Wears the Trousers? White Jeans (& Stripes)

Thank you so much for your expert opinion on your preferred trouser shape. Overall the skinny seems to be a big favourite of yours, and I totally understand why. Skinnies are versatile, can be worn with short or long tops (or dresses) and suit nearly every body shape. I didn’t manage to take 'skinny' pictures over the weekend; but I’ve got something else up for discussion: white jeans. I love them for summer worn with stripey t-shirts, but when it gets grey and cold I stop wearing them. (They seem to be a big hit for Italian men, at least the Sartorialist features a lot of flashy Italians wearing white jeans.)

What about you? Do you like white jeans or are they too 'Kensington housewife'?*
*For all non-UK readers: Kensington is a wealthy borough in London.

I am not a fan of white jeans as I am very clumsy and probably will drop coffee with in ten minutes of wearing them :)

SabinePsynopsis said...

Ha! Very valid point. Also the reason why I don't like wearing them in winter, they immediately get dirty.

Hallo liebe Sabine!
Oh, da habe ich ja einige posts vermisst! Habe das gesamte Wochenende mit Fieber und einem blöden Husten im Bett verbracht ... aber... heute geht es mir schon wieder ganz gut ;) Soo.... das war auf deutsch einfacher als auf english ;)

Woow, you look so slim in your white jeans!!! Lovely look Sabine!!! Also adore your little sweet bling bling crown top from your previous posts! Absolutely amazing!!!
And as all good things come in threes ... how fabulous are your "pictures in the tree"!!!

Wishing you a lovely day and week ahead. The holidays are coming closer. Thinking at the moment of doing a little break from blogging ;)

Hope you get better soon, Martina! So many people are ill (just had it in my family myself, but am fighting it!). Thanks for your (always) kind words. Gute Genesung und bleib nicht zu lange weg von der Bloggingwelt, please. xx

Maddy said...

I don't see myself sporting white trousers(because of my pear shape figure), but you look phenomenal! I love the red accents in your outfit, makes the white pop even more!

SR@MyStyle said...

Hi there-I will be wearing my cropped white jeans this summer! Yours look fab with red stripes and accessories!!

Vintage Vixen said...

I've never been a fan of white jeans on me, but you look spectacular in yours. Fresh and funky and not a bit "Kensington Housewife".

Sarah Elizabeth said...

I love love love this look! I so wish I could pull it off!

Sher said...

I think I love white jeans, but sometimes it does make one look a lil too innocent:)

I love the bared mid-riff stripes with the white jeans though!

I love white jeans for summer- so fresh! :)

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog & leaving the sweet comment :) I'm loving your blog and this outfit! I do love the look of white jeans. Some years more than others, I think it depends on if I'm in a pant mood, some years I just wear dresses and skirts.

You look absolutely wonderful in yours! Loving the red pops :)

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I have been in love with this look for years and years. Unfortunately I cannot pull off the horizontal stripe anymore, unless I live on salads the rest of my life. It looks stunning on you!

SabinePsynopsis said...

I'm starting to feel slightly self-conscious in the short t-shirt myself and normally I wear these trousers with the longer t-shirt dress. I also think I'd like a higher waisted version...

MissNeira said...

The white jeans and red stripes is a great combination..love the way its pulled of here

Dancing Branflake said...

I don't wear white jeans but I do wear white trousers. I find they are perfect for summer and I love how they flow against my skin. They don't look overdressed (unless you want them to).

Vintage Obsession said...

Couture Carrie said...

Love a white jean!

rossovelvet said...

I loooove the way you wear it, it made me think of my mom in the '90 (in the BEST way because she just is the epitome of elegance^^)

Plus you're giving me the envy to wear my white jeans again.... even if PANTS have become some kind of taboo in my world, I never wear them, tights are so comfy and make such perfect legs!!

But you look gorgeous !

OceanDreams said...

I love white jeans but I always manage to spill things on them, not good! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

drollgirl said...

i used to wear them years ago, but i don't think i could pull it off now. but you do it well! very well!

Jen said...

Aha, the illusive white jean. Illusive because I can never. ever find a pair that flatter me! i do just adore them on you though - paired with that nautical top and sharp blazer, they look wonderful.

K.M. said...

i think white jeans look great on some people- including you! but i dont feel comfortable enough with my figure, they can be quite unforgiving!

linda said...

very fantastic white troussers!!!

Vint Junky said...

Really love the red stripe and white skinny combo on you, it's perfect!

Melissa~ said...

perfect colors.
Love the outfit.

Lenka James said...

I love white jeans especially skinny white jeans, they make such gorgeous legs like yours :) But I am so clumsy that I am afraid I am going to spill coffee on them.. I can't wait for summer to wear mine too. Anyway you look great in it, and I see you already have the flat tummy ready for the summer ;)

Taj Acosta said...

White jeans are one of my staples this spring/summer. I found some with frays on them. Not too many just a few on the thighs and it looks so chic and fresh. Love it! xoxo

pixelhazard said...

I'm not a fan of white jeans either but I know some of my cute asian friends totally rock them...so i'm just against them on me. Give me the polar opposite of black jeans or dark blue

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Loving the graphic stripes Sabine!
I have white jeans but seldom wearing them outside...perhaps on my next summer vacation!
xo*

Leah said...

I love how you styled your white jeans... I would style it the same way as you did. Love the striped top and all the other reds. xoxo

Cindy Whitehead said...

Love the white jeans and the striped tee - very fresh!

mom & son said...

Wow, all I can say is you're gorgeous!
This outfit is simple but you pulled it off
so well with touch of sophistication.

My dear, wish my abs is as flat as your, huh!

Martwa Marta said...

i don't remeber when i had trosers for the last time on my butt. they're comfy, that's true, but i prefer leggins! lovely photos!

Roo Paprika said...

Never never never, they'd make my thighs look huge and they'd be grey within nanoseconds of coming out of the wardrobe. It's a lovely look though

Audrey Allure said...

Wonderful outfit, love the red & white put together. I like white jeans and I've been actually looking for a pair for myself :)

mariel elisa said...

marian said...

Faux Naif said...

these are amazing!!!

the colours and the setting... whoa, these look like they're from a magazine.

Anika said...

Ahh, a topic that I have discussed with my boyfriend on many an occasion (poor guy!).

I like the idea of wearing a pair of white pants, yet think you have to be so fussy because of the colour. Too skinny? Not unless you're a supermodel. Or super confident I guess. Too loose? Are you wearing pyjamas then? Haha, and so I've refrained.

But I am tempted. Any brand recommendations for a decent white/even cream pair?

Couture Millinery Atelier. said...

Sabine, you look great in this outfit! I love color combination and this white trousers are something out of this world! When it comes to me I love wearing white trousers! I have several pairs of them in my wardrobe. Come to think of it - white is one of my favorite colors. You have such a unique style - I enjoy every single post in your Blog.
P.S. Well, YES! the outfit from last week will absolutely go with my pink scooter. :-)))

Trishna said...

I loved this outfit. Every single element of it, the pristine whites, to the striped t to the sandals and the bag screams Perfection!!!
