Day Three, dressing up with my Citizens of Humanity dark-wash jeans – top styled by Kim Naci
Dark-wash jeans are a perfect staple for your wardrobe; they are dressy without trying too hard. These Citizens of Humanity jeans are favorites not only because they are dressy but the wide-leg style elongates my leg, making me feel taller than I actually am. The key is wearing them with a slight heel. They, too, have a little lycra giving them just the right stretch.

My summer ensemble: white jeans/Citizens of Humanity paired with blue halter top/Old Navy
We were three women in white. My cousin Michelle, my mother and me. We had met this week for a mini-family reunion and little did we know that all three of us had chosen to wear white pants with colorful tops. When we showed up for lunch we smiled, through our dark sunglasses of course. Summer arrives and the white pants come out. But it makes sense: it’s fun to go lighter after a season of black and brown and gray. And white pants go with everything and can be dressed up or down. Michelle lives in Florida: like many of us, she saves her white pants for the summer months. But Michelle can always tell a non-native because she can be found wearing white pants in the non-summer months as well. That gives her away!
Bring out your white pants! They say you can now wear white all-year round, but really … there’s nothing like wearing crisp white pants in the summer.
