White Jeans? The Search is OVER! Thanks J. Crew!

I have been looking for a good pair of white jeans for who knows how long, maybe 2-3 years now? I am not kidding when I say that I have tried at least 20 brands both low and high end. I've tried 7FAM, Adriana Goldschmied, Joe's, Citizens, Gap, Old Navy, F21, H&M, True Religion, Hudson, Siwy, J Brand, Current/Elliot and the list goes on and on and on. I actually gave up late last year as it seemed that the universe was conspiring against the pairing of white jeans and myself. White jeans are more difficult since they highlight your legs rather than slim them. Almost every pair I tried on was unflattering on the thighs and made my legs look too short. Just thinking about it makes me frustrated.

BUT...finally my time came and while at J Crew checking out the sale section, I saw a whole wall of Toothpick Jeans in white. I'm not really sure why they had so many racks of it right in front, but it certainly got my attention. With a reliquishing sigh, I picked up a size 26 pair (my normal J Crew jean size) knowing I was just setting myself up for disappointment...until I tried them on. 

J Crew Ankle Stretch Toothpick Jean in White Denim: Here is a stock image followed by the jeans on me:

Not bad, not bad at all! I really liked the fit of the jeans! They were tight, but not suffocatingly so and looked great on the hips and thighs! The length was perfect on me as it hit right on the ankle! I was ECSTATIC! My search for the perfect white jean was OVER! Summer here I come! I loved it so much, I purchased 2 pairs, just in case something happens to one of them. Each pair was pricey at $125, but after 3 years of searching, it was well worth it.

If you are looking for well-fitting white jeans and have had good experiences with the Toothpick, try 'em on! 

Thank you for reading!

Love, 

Kim

They are a perfect fit on you, I have pair from a few years back which I love although they are a bit snug at the waist just now - ugh time to cut back!

Congrats on your find! I have the same pair but in the matchstick style, and love them. I sucked it up and paid full price too, in April, $98.00. Then a few weeks ago they raised the price to $115!

Thanks again for the net-a-porter sale news. I was able to order the Director dress now instead of waiting for JCrew to put it on sale. :)

I know exactly how you feel. Finding a great pair of whie jeans is exhausting. Do the ankle toothpick fit tighter than the toothpick matchstick? They look so good on you, congrats on finding your perfect pair!

Thank you Tabitha! I'm glad you have your pair, even if it is a bit snug, but is great motivation for the summer!

Thanks JustVisiting! I'm glad you got that dress, it is gorgeous! I heard NAP will add and lower prices of sale items over the next 2 weeks so I hope more J Crew is on the way!

Welcome and thank you for following Patti! I will put up many more J Crew reviews so stay tuned!

Dear SmallTownGal, the matchsticks are definitely looser in the calf and ankle area and are more akin to straight leg jeans while the toothpicks are more skinny jeans. Best of luck in your hunt! Everyone has a perfect white pair out there!

Thank you Mica! I'm so relieved that the search is over! I hope they never take away that white pair from their stock haha!

Thought I'd reply to you here in case you miss the response on my blog :)

My Hermes bangle is quite loose on me, but I like that style. My wrist is 14cm around and I wear the PM Hermes bracelets, the smallest they make. The clic clac is an oval shape, the 5.5cm wide at the largest point. Hope that helps Kim :) If you go to Hermes.com they have measurements, plus the SAs in stores are so helpful they will let you try them on.
