Are white jeans unflattering in general?

Just that really... want to replace my Next denim leggings (basically jeans but stretchy - they're great). Getting dark blue and black but they've also got a white option... I've never worn white jeans/trousers and so I don't really know if they're considered to be flattering/unflattering?

I've got quite a nice hourglass shape, my thighs are on the larger side, slim calves.

Please share your wisdom MN!

I always avoided white jeans (and trousers) like the plague, because I'm an hourglass with a curvy bum and thighs, and they're not flattering. BUT this summer I got a lovely long top (ie that covers my bum) and the colours meant that I had to get white jeans to go with it. I got a pair from New Look and while they're not the most flattering jeans I have, they do look quite nice. Having said that, I would only wear them in summer, and have already managed to spill various food on them. They're also grubby around the ankles. So not the most practical!

No, they are nice for the party season especially with a glittery/sequin top

They're a bit Liz Hurley.

No they're not unflattering but to me they look like Summer clothes.

Great if you have the figure but I have struggled to find any at all that are heavy duty enough not to show your vpl or pocket linings & seams! White & opaque seems to be impossible.

Thanks all...think I'll leave them. Yes can see the Liz Hurley thing squoosh grin

Blue and black it is then!
