This feature is for all denim lovers looking for white jeans – guys and ladies – and how to avoid a see-through drama!
As we had mentioned in our feature about Courteney Cox – white jeans are quite tricky. The can be embarrassingly see-through if you don’t watch out. In order to avoid see-through we suggest you go for a heavier weight denim and with as little stretch as possible. The ideal composition would be no more than 2% stretch. The thinner the denim and the more stretch they contain, the more see-through the jeans will be.
Another thing is that the tighter the jeans, the more visible your “imperfections” will be. You need to avoid white jeans that are too fitted because white is an unforgiving and relentless color. White amplifies every little mark you may have on your legs or butt, so be careful. Skinny white jean can be ok as long as they are thicker and sturdier, as mentioned above. But we suggest you avoid super-skinny and go for a more relaxed fi made of rigid, or almost 1005 cotton denim.
