I have to admit that I am a big fan of Cameron Diaz’ style. The girl knows how to rock casual looks like almost no other and she always nails it on the red carpet (thanks to Rachel Zoe, of course.) This photo is a perfect example of how to rock the all-too-terrifying white skinnies.
NOW, I know you’re saying, well, if I had Cameron Diaz’ body, I could make a paper sack look cute, much less white skinny jeans. Ok, I hear you, but let’s talk proportion and why this total look works for her, then we’ll talk about some alternatives for the rest of us mere mortals.
In addition to the perfect pair of jeans and her rockin’ body, the look works because…
- The 3/4 sleeve sweater she has on is a great fit and there is nothing more chic than black and white. This is classic American jetsetter style, very Jackie O. There’s a reason it’s withstood the test of time. The combo always works.
- Add the neutral bag and pumps and she creates one long, lean line that pretty much makes anyone look like a goddess.
So, if you decide to rock white skinnies like Cammy D just remember these optical tricks for classic denim appeal.
Curvy girl note: if you’ve got a little more to work with in the rear and thighs, J Brand makes a great option for you that will be seriously flattering: the 7014 Bombshell Cigarette Leg in Powder.
Purchasing note: It looks like these J Brand skinnies are no longer available, so I would go for their essential unadorned pair, the 912 Low-Rise Pencil Leg in Powder.
