The best white jeans – and they’re not see-through!

With spring just around the corner, I was on the hunt for a pair of inexpensive white jeans.  If you’re like me, you tend to admire white jeans from afar, but are too afraid to wear them in fear of getting them dirty in about two seconds – especially if you forked over a lot of cash for them.  

I looked all over, and then I came across this pair from J. Crew Factory.  The price is low and the reviews are great (especially for the petite version), so of course I had to try them for myself.

These definitely go beyond my expectations!  They are stretchy and comfortable, but also form-fitting and flattering.  Best of all, they aren’t see-through, which is always a concern with lighter-colored pants. TMI alert: I wore dark underwear under these, and I couldn’t see them through the jeans at all.

These white jeans aren’t see-through at all!

The color is called ‘Frost Wash’, and it isn’t a super bright, White-Out white, but it’s close.  They’re still a true white, which is exactly what I was hoping for.  

I paired them with a black scalloped top and jeweled ballet flats (more about both below), so the look is more dressy than if I had chosen a brightly colored shirt and sandals, for example.  Happily, white jeans are very versatile and look great both ways!

Honestly, as a stay-at-home mommy, most of my daily outfits are low-key, so I don’t buy many clothes that can only be worn for formal occasions.  It sure does feel good to wear a couple of slightly dressier pieces every now and then, though.

White jeans + black scalloped top + blush pink ballet flats + pink tassel earrings

These come in petite, regular, and tall inseam versions.  They run true-to-size: I got size 26/26, which is equal to my usual size 2 petite.  The inseam on the petite sizes is 25.5″.  My legs are really short, so I tucked the jeans under a bit for the ankle-length look.

The low price is what drew me to these the most.  I’m not too concerned about getting them dirty since they didn’t cost a huge amount.  That means they’ll get a lot of wear instead of hanging up looking pretty in my closet!

The bottom line: if you’re looking for a pair of inexpensive white jeans, I highly recommend these!

I also considered this pair from J. Crew retail, although they are more expensive. They look very similar with a slightly higher rise, and they also have good reviews.

Scalloped Tee

While I was placing my order at J. Crew Factory, I also grabbed this scalloped tee. It’s the top I’m wearing in all the pictures in this post. I had my eye on it since it was released, and it’s getting good reviews.  I’m really impressed: the material is thicker than a typical tee and it feels really well-made.  Of course, I’m in love with the gorgeous scalloped neckline, too!  I’m hoping to get more in a couple of other colors.

Ballet Flats & Earrings

I also have to quickly rave about the ballet flats and tassel earrings I’m wearing.  The blush pink color of the flats is perfect and right on trend, and the jeweled brooches can quickly dress up any outfit.  One word of warning: they do have a break-in period, so I’ve been wearing band-aids on my heels to prevent blisters.

The earrings are from the Sugarfix by BaubleBar line, which is BaubleBar’s more affordable line for Target.  As far as I can tell, the quality is the same as the items you see with their main line, and the price is much lower!  I love these so much I bought them in mint green and white as well.
