I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Second up, Navaz Batliwalla, editor of Disneyrollergirl and author of the best style guide, ever, “The New Garconne- How to be a Modern Gentlewoman.”
“I only have one pair – white Levi’s 501s from a couple of years ago. They’re still white though as they only come out in summer and we rarely get proper summers in London. (We’re having an amazing heatwave right now though…)
I had mine tailored to above the ankle so I wear them with my oxblood Bass Weejuns or battered tan Church’s lace-ups. (No socks; if I’m feeling pasty I use the amazing Nars Monoi Body Glow bronzing oil but keep it well away from the white denim.)
They look great with anything tan or blue. And very simple jewellery – I wear my dad’s rings on a chain.
White 501s aren’t that widely available any more but I also like the look of these cropped cigarette jeans from Madewell.” Navazwhite jeans series
