It’s time to debunk the myth that white after Labor Day is a “fashion don’t,” because believe it or not, white in the Fall and Winter looks so dang good! You can wear white jeans just like you would regular blue jeans. If you’re still unsure as to how you should go about styling them for Winter, here are 8 ways you can style white jeans in Winter:
2. Get comfy in an oversized sweater.
Not only are such sweaters on-trend, they’re oh-so-comfy and will make your white jeans look they belong in the season. You can never go wrong if you throw in a cute pair of neutral booties to complete the outfit.
3. Wear with tall boots.
If you want to minimize the amount of white showing or just really love tall boots, they’re the perfect addition to a white jeans outfit in Winter.
4. Remember red.
Create striking contrast by adding pops of red to your white jeans look. A red and white outfit would be ideal for any holiday party.
5. Wear with blue and/or navy.
Blue and white are an excellent combo for that Wintery feel. A navy coat or blazer with white jeans creates a very classic look that can even have some nautical vibes.
6. Add some plaid.
This classic print is not just for blue and black denim. It can also be quite striking when paired with a pair of white jeans in Fall or Winter. You can add a lot of plaid, or be subtle about it.
7. Go sporty casual.
As mentioned before, white jeans can be worn like your basic blue jeans, so why not make them look relaxed and sporty with a pair of sneakers and a sweatshirt?
8. Aim for monochromatic.
You can never go wrong with the classic black and white look. Add in grey for various tints and shades.
Have you heard? Beija-Flor is having its annual Warehouse Sale at the Flagship Store in Downtown Greenville this weekend (June 1-3)! Warehouse sales are different from most other sales and they can often be a little intimidating—particularly if you're a warehouse sale rookie. But whether you're a newcomer or a seasoned veteran, you can easily have a fun and successful shopping experience by following these tips:
Get there early.
There will be a line.
Bring a friend.
It’s always more fun to shop with your peers!
Give yourself plenty of time to shop.
There are several racks and boxes to look through and time flies when you’re having fun, so keep that in mind as you plan your trip to the sale.
Make sure you are well hydrated.
Sometimes you get so caught up walking around shopping that you forget to take a water break. Remember, your health is more important than discount jeans.
Wear a dress/skirt.
There will be communal fitting rooms, but if you don’t want to wait in line or if you’re uncomfortable changing around a bunch of strangers, you can easily/quickly try on a pair of jeans by slipping them on under your skirt.
Wear comfortable shoes that easily slip on/off for changing.
Wear a camisole to try on blouses.
Try on a size up and a size down from your normal size.
These jeans may fit differently than other brands, so we recommend trying different sizes to ensure you find the best fit.
If you like it, buy it.
If you don’t get it now, someone else will, and you’ll miss out on something you love at a great price. Also, don’t rule out an item just because it’s out of season. If you find something you absolutely love but wouldn’t wear it till Fall/Winter, you should still buy it! You won’t be able to buy it for a cheaper price if you wait.

Skirts often feel like must-haves in the warmer seasons, but we often neglect them come late Fall because looking chic while staying warm can be a tough task once temperatures drop. Believe it or not, you don’t have to sacrifice warmth or style with a denim skirt, because there are many ways to make it suitable for the season. Below we have a few style tips on how to wear denim skirts in Fall and Winter.
Wear with tights or leggings.
Keep those legs from getting too chilly with a pair of tights, or really block the cold with a good pair of leggings. Complete the outfit with a pair of ankle boots and a cute fitted sweater or cardigan for a classy look.
Wear with a coat.
When the weather gets really frigid, you’ll want a nice pea coat or trench coat to block the wind and keep you looking chic. Tights, boots, and a scarf help complement the look and add to the warmth.
Wear with tall boots.
If you want some extra warmth on your legs with or without tights/leggings or just really like tall boots, they work great with denim skirts in Fall and Winter.
Wear with an oversized sweater.
Oversized sweaters are very much on trend and are extremely warm and comfortable. This outfit works great with a tall pair of boots, with tights/legging, shorter boots, or even a cute pair of sneakers.
Wear with flannel.
If flannel doesn’t scream “FALL,” we don’t know what does. You can make this outfit very warm and buttoned up with a vest and tall boots, or more relaxed with a tee when it’s not too cold out.

As co-founder and CEO of Beija-Flor Jeans, Emilie Whitaker has harnessed her entrepreneurial savvy and innate awareness of what consumers want and need to turn legions of women into “Beija-Believers.” Emilie’s innovative, passionate and thoughtful approach to fashion has landed her in countless profiles including a recent Women in Biz feature by Google. In this Spotlight, this designing woman, wife and mother shares a little insight about her life behind the seams.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START BEIJA-FLOR?I never understood why it was so hard to find the perfect fitting jean. I always seemed to be trying to fit into something that clearly wasn’t designed with me in mind. It made me realize that most designers weren’t designing for the women that actually wore their clothing. On one of our trips to visit my father’s family in Brazil, my mother and I noticed how local designs seemed to embrace a woman’s curves in ways American styles did not. The proverbial light bulb went off and Beija-Flor Jeans was born. And ever since, we’ve focused on making women feel as amazing as possible in every piece of clothing we produce. YOUR CAREER MILESTONE:Getting over the fear of failure. I remember the moment I realized we had created something special. I had a buyer challenge something about the line and without fear of losing the sale, I confidently answered him back. He ended up buying the line for his stores. I realized then we had earned the right to be confident in our product and brand. YOUR FIRST JOB:Working in our family business, a women’s clothing store that my grandmother bought in 1979 when she was 66 years old. I probably learned more in that job than any other. ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE YOUR 22-YEAR-OLD SELF:Listen to advice and even if you don't take it, be open to hearing it. YOUR HERO:My mom. She was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 39 years old. After beating it, she participated in an outward bound program where she camped out overnight and carried her own canoe. Those experiences allowed her to approach life with no fear. Her courage and determination in her personal life have made her an incredibly hard worker who's always up for any challenge. She has brought that to Beija-Flor and continues to inspire me and our team. BEST CAREER ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED:My dad has always given all of his children great career advice. One of his go-to phrases is "work smart." When overwhelmed with projects and timelines, I always remember those simple words. YOUR FASHION ICON:My sister, Anna, is one of the most fashionable people I know. I wish she would do all of my shopping. YOUR MOST OVERUSED PHRASE:It's a win-win! WHAT EXCITES YOU CAREER-WISE?I love innovation - from the cutting-edge fabrics that we continue to source to new methods of reducing our carbon footprint. I love to seek new and better ways to do business and create our collections. FIRST THING YOU DO IN THE MORNING AND LAST THING YOU DO BEFORE BED:Listen to my little girl tell me about her "crazy dreams." YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT:My marriage. I got lucky and found the love of my life, but we both work at creating a relationship our daughter can learn from. WHEN YOU WERE A KID, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?At five - a fire woman. At 12 - Crazily enough I wanted to be the owner of a fashion company. WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BEAUTIFUL?Being surrounded by people I love and making them laugh. WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR WORK?Our team works so hard to make every jean perfect - from choosing the most innovative fabric to obsessing over even the tiniest of details. There's nothing better than hearing a customer say how much she loves our work. It reminds me why we started the brand in the first place and makes all of this worth it. WORDS OF WISDOM FOR OTHER BUDDING FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS:I think all entrepreneurs need to develop a thick skin, especially women. When you put an idea or a business plan out into the world you will get tons of opinions and criticism. While it’s good to get feedback, I think women need to shelter themselves from all the people trying to tell them how to do something. My advice to female entrepreneurs can be summed up like this: Prepare for the situation. Empower yourself. Believe you can do it. WHAT’S NEXT FOR BEIJA-FLOR?So much! We’re expanding our core collection, adding amazing new washes and branching out into new textures. We are growing in ways that are beyond my wildest dreams and I love every second of it.
