Agnes Baddoo’s Favorite White Jeans

I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Fifth up LA and NYC-based handbag designer, Agnes Baddoo:

“I love sailor pants for the flattering feminine fit in the waist and the breezy, wide but straight, leg. Worn grazing just below the ankle, hovering above the foot, they look great with flats like these Moroccan babou by my friend Mariko, a heeled espadrille, or sandals. My pants are vintage, a similar pair are the Jesse Kamm sailor pants in Salt.” Agnes

  • She looks so cool and great. On a side note, I’ve been carrying her natural Sac 1 all summer and have never received more compliments on a bag in my life. I’ve had her Sac 2 as a carry on and beach bag forever. Love her shoes too.

  • Fab photograph, fab style. White jeans are a staple, but it’s so tough to find the right ones. Love this series!

  • I love sailor pants, too, especially in the summer. Agnes is a great addition to your White jeans Series!

  • She looks extremely chic and I love her descriptions . All of the women featured have such smart reasoning behind their choices for white jeans. Such a good series, Preston!

  • Such a great photo. The subtle feminity of Ms Baddoo’s style is beyond chic. Also, just love those flats!
    This white jeans series has been fascinating – everyone featured has such an individual style. I can’t wait to see what you choose as your white jean style. No doubt it will be chic and ‘you’.

  • I have been wearing my white jeans (Levi’s 501s) loads recently – thank you London heatwave, Also Agnes’s name keeps popping up everywhere! One of our mutual readers sent me the loveliest email and recommended an Agnes Badoo bag. I need to investigate…

  • My 2017 “Gilligan inspired” purchase from Anthropologie earlier this season. But I’ll always keep my classic Levi 501s in rotation…

  • Great post!! I’m wondering if anyone has suggestions on where I could find a pair of white 501’s without rips/distressing? I’ve been on the hunt for month but no luck!
