Now is the time to re-embrace the ever notorious white jean. This iconic denim wash has come a long way since the eighties, and when worn right can make the ultimate subtle statement.

Ever since white denim officially broke out onto the scene in the mid-80s, it has become synonymous with Wham! styling and it’s tan enhancing properties. Here at Whistles we are championing a more chic approach to white denim dressing, due to it’s laidback luxe qualities and cool crisp hue. With a range of brand new styles, including a high rise wide leg and cropped culottes that suit any shape or occasion.

Make like Moss and opt for a loose boyfriend fit, paired with a nineties inspired crop and sliders for effortless weekend style. Take your denim on holiday, think Farah Fawcett’s tousled beach hair and loose fitting shirt, or smarten the look for work with a contrast heel, in the same vein as French Vogue editor Emmanuelle Alt.
