White Jeans: so hot right now, yet so intimidating to wear.
Sure, the white jean is chic. Sure, it's a staple you must have in your spring wardrobe. And sure, they look amazing with a pair of wooden wedges. But can we talk about the fact that whenever we wear a pair, we lose all self-control? We spill coffee all over ourselves; we somehow get pen all over our knees; and after one too many glasses of wine during girls night, we're left with a huge stain and a broken heart.
Moral of the story? White jeans are dangerous.
Well, not anymore! Old Navy is proving that white jeans don't have to be a thing of horror with their latest innovation: the stain-repellent skinny jean.
Called the Mid-Rise Stay-White Rockstar Super Skinny Jean, the retailer is claiming this new pant, "Repels stains and spills, so your jeans stay white, no matter how messy the day gets." Valued at $44.94, the medium-weight denim, with its tonal topstitching and added stretch, is said to withstand everything from coffee to ketchup.
Skeptical? This is Refinery29's fashion news writer Ana Colón testing the WOW-inducing denim out:
And when it comes to washing these magical pants, all you have to do is turn them inside-out, throw them into the washing machine in cold water, and dry on low heat. According to Melissa Morrin, Old Navy's senior designer for women's denim, "The technology will perform well through 20 home wash cycles, though the stain-resisting technology allows for more wears between washes."
So on behalf of clumsy fashion lovers everywhere: thank you, Old Navy. Your development of a jean that will make us all feel less embarrassed when we spill mustard on our pants at this summer's barbecue is truly a miracle.
