Back to Basics: White Denim

It is ironic how "cropped" pants are ankle length on me. 

I found out during a recent health checkup that I am apparently 5'3" rather than 5'4". I have shrunk an inch, when I can hardly afford to lose any!
Oh, the trauma to my poor delicate nerves!

And white jeans tend to make my bottom half shorter and dumpier than they usually do.
One would think that I would learn...

But I love the idea of white denim. So I shall just have to continue visualizing long, lean legs.
And avoid looking at reflective surfaces.

Turtleneck - Gap
Jeans - J.Crew cropped matchsticks
Wedges - DV for Target

I'm 5' 2" and I only started wearing white jeans in the past couple years. I find that wearing them full length looks better than capris. My favorite white skinny jeans are the Gap 1969 always skinny jeans in white in the petite sizes.

Thanks, Mei -- Gap pants/jeans that I've tried in the past has a kinda wonky fit on me -- but I shall try the ones you mentioned. Cross fingers!
