Will these jeans make me look like a castaway?

Ok, going on holiday on Sunday to L.A and I decided to ditch the skinny jeans, move with the times and go with looser, more relaxed jeans. I bought these white jeans to wear on holiday
and liked then till I showed them to DH. He suggested they look a bit like 'castaway' chic with the frayed bottoms blush
I suspect he's right now I think about it! What do the stylish folk here think? Keep or return? They are actually much wider than they look in the photo.

I'm really sorry but they are not very nice! Even styled on the model like look horrible!

I'm not stylish in the slightest but I don't think they are at all flattering on the model. I generally think that if it makes the model look frumpy, the rest of us have no chance. Sorry sad

I wouldn't myself. I like ankle grazers but only if they're tapered. I'd look about 4'10" in those. Actually if you are 6'1" and want to look half a foot shorter go for it!

Right colour though for la.

Oh dear, no. As said above if they don't look good on the model, ordinary folk stand no chance of looking good in them.

I could well be getting old, but I really don't get this ragged round the bottom look at all!

Oh no! Please don't!
I do like a bit of white jeans but the shape is horrible.
Loose white linen or tight white jeans.

They look like the hem's come down.

They make the models ankles look fat, they are just totally the wrong length. Send them back or cut about 3 ft off the legs and you will be good to go

I like them!

It kind of depends on your style and your overall look. It's very on trend to have ragged hems, and cropped wide leg/kick flare jeans are very on trend too.

I agree it's not a hugely flattering look but I think it depends on your goal. Lots of "fashionable" stuff doesn't necessarily make a person look tall/thin/long legged/whatever but that's ok.

Bootcut jeans worn over a smallish heel- very flattering but totally unfashionable nowadays. Wide leg cropped jeans with flats - very fashionable but not that flattering. Just depends on what you like.

Personally, is keep them (as long as they are cropped enough. I'd say you'd need at least an inch above your ankle on display. I think they're quite LA friendly smile

I'm more drawn to the top-small sandals. Tut.

You'll need a bandana, some tattoos and a pistol for the full Israel Hands look.

He he. Looks pretty unanimous except for plimsolls I think I may be letting fashion get in the way of being flattering. I like them too but I feel I may look back at photos of me in them in years to come and think WTF was I thinking? smile

Look! They were even in the Sunday Times style supplement this weekend
I'm returning them tomorrow sadly....
