Ask Belle: Quality White Denim
Apr 27, 2015
I’m on a never-ending search for the perfect white skinny jeans. Namely, I’m looking for some that aren’t see-through and are soft (for some reason, I’ve come across a number of pairs that are very stiff). I’d prefer if their price point was $100 or less, but I’m willing to spend up to $150’ish for the perfect pair. Do you have any recommendations?
A word of advice on white jeans: If you plan to wear them frequently, you should buy the best quality jean that you can afford. Less expensive jeans will often be thin, and get thinner when washed. If you’re looking for higher quality jeans for less, try stores like 6pm.com, Nordstrom Rack, etc.
These jeans from AG are my favorite. They have a high Lycra content, so they stretch to fit. I also like the higher waist for holding me in. If the high-rise isn’t your bag, Nordstrom has the AG legging jean sale-priced at $117. I also recommend their Angel bootcut jeans.
AG has the softest denim that I’ve ever encountered. They’re aged to mimic vintage jeans.
Looking for an under-$100 jean that isn’t paper-thin? There are two brands I would look into: Kut from the Kloth and NYDJ. I’ve tried on their jeans and they’re made from a heavier material than most inexpensive jeans.
Have a pair of white jeans to recommend? Leave them in the comments.
