I love jeans, specifically my pair of white barrel jeans. Don’t be put off by the name; they’re much more versatile than they sound. The Arket pair that I own are brilliant because the denim is thick and sturdy, and they have a high-rise fit, so they are really comfortable to wear. The wide barrel shape is surprisingly flattering, as it creates a beautiful silhouette when you tuck in tops. As it has a clean hem, I also find this pair easy to dress up and down, maximising its wearability.
White jeans are a balance of risk and reward. They are a risky choice if, like me, you’re clumsy. But if you can avoid any coffee or red wine spillages, you’ll be rewarded with lots of styling options—and chic ones at that. To prove my point, I’ve assembled five different looks centred around Arket’s barrel jeans that I know will last me the entire winter and beyond.
