Which White Jeans Are Best For Your Body Type

White jeans have been getting a bum rap for way too long. Not only have they been unjustly exiled to certain seasons with that ridiculous post-Labor Day rule, but a lot of people are too scared to wear them simply because they are, well…white. Which, as I hope to convince you of today, is not synonymous with unflattering.

Yes, if something happens, "they can get really dirty"—but that can be avoided by....using napkins. And/or OxiClean. And just because they're light doesn't mean they're going to make you look big. White jeans should be approached just like any other piece of denim: by fit.

In the slideshow below, I've shopped the best white denim for three height categories—tall, medium and petite—divided in two sections: slim and curvy. Click through to find out which pair works for your body type.

Tall/Slim

With your long, lean, model-like proportions, you'll probably look amazing in any silhouette. However, why waste a super-human physique on the mundane? Go for the tailored bell bottoms and let us live vicariously through you.

Tall/Curvy

All that extra white fabric would overwhelm someone of smaller stature. On you however, this trouser style is effortless and elegant.

Medium/Slim

You are already build very narrowly, so choose a slightly cropped skinny pair. It will help create curves and make your legs look longer.

Medium/Curvy

A subtle boot cut, especially with pumps (or for summer, a wedge), will play up your hourglass figure.

Petite/Slim

Congratulations lady. You are one of the five people in the world who looks good in white jeggings. Own it.

Petite/Curvy

Your best fit is about creating balance: a slim—but not tapered—leg will minimize your hips and create the illusion of height.
