Anyone who’s tried pulling on dark skinny jeans in the summer knows what sartorial torture it can amount to. That’s probably why these stylish celebs, from Malaika Arora Khan to Gauhar Khan and Sarah Jane Dias choose white denims instead.
According to designer Anita Dongre, white jeans are imperative for the season. “Since big floral prints are a big summer trend, they look the best when paired with white bottoms. You can also wear an entirely white look by pairing it with a white T-shirt or white chikankari kurta,” she advises. Designer Narendra Kumar, who created his own line of denims with Killer, adds, “Try wearing white with a light pastel shade so that it looks almost monochromatic. Pair that with brightly coloured shoes. For a more mature look, you can pair white denims with a light mal or khaki linen shirt.” For those worried about white making them look bulkier, as popular convention goes, Dongre says, “It’s a myth that white makes you look larger. If the jeans are well-cut and fit properly, they can look just as slimming as a darker-hued version.”
