White Out

It was 80 degrees and sunny this weekend in New York.  It was also not raining for once which means many girls and guys took advantage of the opportunity to wear white jeans.  They've been around forever and will remain a classic that can be dressed up or down.  If you are a man and want to wear white jeans, it helps if you are Italian or play polo but you can't go wrong pairing them with a blue shirt and navy blazer.  If you're a woman, long legs like Emannuelle Alt don't hurt but as you can see, they look great on many heights and even a few little people. 

I shall call her Mini Me.  Gwyneth Paltrow and daughter Apple Martin.

Love white jeans, any time of year.

I think that is Gunther Sachs with Brigit Bardot, not Alain Delon.

I am more of a white pants person but the jeans look just as good! Nacho Figueras always has the same kind of annoyed expression in all of his photos. I don`t think I have seen him smiling not even once! ;-)

OK...I'll give you Polo players...maybe Italian men ( in Italy ). Otherwise, white jeans on men? No. Really.

Loved this post and love me some white jeans. BTW J Crew has great white jeans - I like the "matchsticks." (and I don't work for J Crew) But DANG you didn't say "You're welcome" after Nacho's picture. It always cracks me up when you do that.

Wore some white jeans last week, and maybe some over the weekend. I'm in Southern California. Very clean look.
