Going up? If you want to look sky-high with legs that go on for miles, check out these new summer pants. I’m partnering with @Spanx to share their new high-waisted, white flare jeans and two ways to style them (one which may surprise you!)
Summer wouldn’t be summer without a pair of gorgeous white jeans, and this year high waisted flare jeans are trending. Spanx has new flare jeans that take the stress out of white pants by making your legs look long and tummy look flat!

These white, high-waisted flare jeans feel right out of the 70s and ’70s with a thigh-skimming fit that widens out to big boho flares! But what makes them modern is plenty of built-in stretch and a pull-on style, so they feel more like leggings.
With a high rise there’s no worry about a muffin top, and there’s also a hidden tummy panel that magically pulls you in and helps you look flat. We all know that wearing white pants can make you a little self-conscious, but the slimming technology removes those worries. With these jeans, it’s like having built-in shapewear!
I styled my flares with this navy draped blouse, which also takes the emphasis off my waist. I love how this cross front blouse gives these sailor white pants a nautical vibe.
Still not comfy in white pants if you have a bit of a midlife middle? Try this. Wear a shirt dress over these white high waist flare jeans. You heard me. Dresses over pants is a big trend that even I was having a hard time getting my head around until I experimented and tried this look. Because a shirt dress is like a long shirt, this looks fabulous. Belt it and leave the last button or two undone.
These pants are long so you will need heels. Flats are not going to work with these pants! I suggested a chunky block heel or a thick wedge like a cork or rope wedge sandal.

I love the crisp white, but these also come in a pretty pale blue denim shade—one note about size. I love Spanx, but they have odd sizing. I’m usually small in pants ( size 6), but in Spanx, I am medium. It would be best to size up with any Spanx pants and leggings.
Which of the two white, straight leg, flare jeans looks do you like best, and can you see yourself wearing these this summer? Comment below and let me know!
