Alyson Walsh’s Favorite White Jeans

Alyson Walsh White Jeans post

I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Eighth up, editor of the fab site That’s Not My Age and author of the soon-to-be released Know Your Style, Alyson Walsh:

“Engaging in a little DIY action over a long Bank Holiday weekend, I took a pair of scissors and lopped a couple of inches off a pair of old Gap flared jeans (the Long and Lean style). To be perfectly honest, I resisted the kick flare/boot crop/whatever trend for quite sometime; when you’re tall, it just looks like your trousers don’t fit. Which is all a bit too ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin,’ for my liking. Anyhow. I finally succumbed to ankle-flapping fashion last year and have been wearing these Gap jeans ever since – my Acne ‘Hep’ white jeans haven’t had a look in.  This cropped style looks good in summer with flat sandals and a shirt, swap for Gucci loafers and a sweater now that it’s cooler. This old APC knit belongs to my partner Paul (Mr TNMA)-  guess that makes it a proper boyfriend sweater.

P.S. after every few washes I give the frayed hems a trim, otherwise the DIY kick flare jeans get themselves into a bit of a tangle. ” Alyson

  • They look like the right length to me – but I’m not tall. I never wear my jeans longer than that!

  • She looks very chic. This feels both inspiring and attainable, though I envy her height! 🙂
    This series is great, thank you,

  • Also love the diy aspect and the length looks great on her but I would wear them a bit shorter. Thanks for reminding me about TNMA.

  • Love this post. I wear the same Gap jeans – they will now get a “trim”
