White jeans are bit of a risky proposition. But I’m an advocate of wearing them – no matter the season. Despite my love of coffee and red wine (and I’m also going to just throw in that I’ve got grubby young children which weirdly hasn’t deterred me from white denim), I’ve been reaching for these bad boys as the weather continues to cool here in Sydney.
And while white jeans are surprisingly versatile to style, you’ve got to be picky in choosing the right denim. Too thin and you risk your jeans being see-through and too thick and you risk having a pair of cardboard jeans that are too uncomfortable to wear.
I’m sporting the new Everlane Curvy Cheeky Straight Jean in Bone. The curvy version of their traditional high-rise straight leg jean is specifically designed for hourglass shapes. Since giving birth, my sons gifted me hips and a bigger bum. And while I’ve since come to terms with the fact that their gift couldn’t be returned (thanks kids), the biggest blow was that my pre-kids denim collection sadly became unflattering on my new body shape, particularly around my mid-section. With this in mind, I’m honing in on the silhouettes better suited to my new body shape.
The curvy version of Everlane’s classic straight leg style has adjusted the hip-to-waist ratio so there’s less bulge up top. But the highlight for me is the back pockets on the curvy version of the jeans that sit a little higher than their regular fit – a hugely flattering design feature that makes my bum look more lifted (see below!).
In terms of wearability, from the get-go they’ve been comfortable to wear with a touch of stretch thanks to the 2% elastane in the fabric. As to the denim itself, it passes the fabric test with flying colours – it’s not too thin or thick. All in all – these have been a real winner for me. And for $120 AUD / $78 USD a pair, they’re hard to pass up.
When it comes to sizing, I’m a true size AU 8 and I typically wear a size 26 in jeans. I’ve got this pair in the size 26 in the ankle length and they fit perfectly. In terms of working out whether you should go for the regular fit or the curvy fit, if you’re pear-shaped like me, I would recommend going for the curvy version. The tweaks that they’ve made are so flattering.

It’s been a busy week for me on the work front but I’m looking forward to relaxing with the family over the weekend.
Thanks again for stopping by. Hope you’re all staying safe x
