Hey friends! The other day Dan and I were watching TV and a Christmas commercial came on. It was for an artificial Christmas tree. I get the whole “Christmas in July” thing, but WOW. Was so not expecting to see a commercial. So not ready to think about the holidays. Instead, I want to talk about white jeans! I love them for Spring/Summer and even into the Autumn months and beyond. That whole “rule” of no wearing white after Labor Day – yeh, ignore that please. 🙂 They’re stylish and a nice substitute for those trusted, tired blue jeans. Below I’m sharing a few favorite ways to wear white jeans.
There are two jeans featured in this post, both from the Loft. The Modern Skinny Cropped Jean has a good bit of stretch, so I sized down one size to a 25. The Modern Skinny Jean (wearing size 26) are a true skinny jean with the length hitting right at the ankle area.
Paired with Stripes
One of the simplest ways to wear your white jeans – with a striped top. I grabbed a navy and white striped front-knot tee from my closet, added a few delicate accessories and boom – done. It has a bit of a nautical vibe, but it’s a timeless look overall and perfect for summer. Also, side note: I love navy and white paired with cognac (my bangle and shoes). You can’t go wrong with that combination.
Paired with a Blazer
If you are permitted to wear jeans to work or maybe on casual Fridays, try pairing a blazer with your white jeans. It’s a really smart, casual yet pulled-together look.
Paired with a Chambray Shirt
There is something classic about a chambray shirt and white jeans. It’s a shirt that we all most likely have in our closets and works so well with white jeans for Spring and Summer. The look also transitions well into fall simply by adding a blazer or cardigan and animal print booties. Speaking of fall, I also love wearing chambray and white jeans with cognac colored riding boots.
Paired with a Bold Top
White jeans are a blank canvas, so I can’t think of a better way to dress them up than with a bold colored top/blouse. So vibrant and fun – the perfect way to brighten up your day. 🙂
Tonal with Fun Bold Accessories
Got a favorite pair of statement earrings, necklace or maybe handbag? By keeping the look tonal (monochromatic), it becomes a nice backdrop to your eye-catching pieces. I feel like it makes the accessories stand out. I should also mention that neutrals (creams, blushes, and other off-white tones) look very chic with white jeans.
Paired with Black
Another way to wear your white jeans is with black. This photo was taken from a recent Express trip (my animal print post) and I just love the contrasting between the black blouse and the white jeans. So stylish, yet so easy to put together.
Add a Denim Jacket
Love the look of a denim jacket paired with white jeans. It’s classic, effortless and the perfect weekend look. I love this look for grocery shopping. It’s always so dang cold in the store, so having an extra layer helps to keep me warm, yet stylish!
What I love about wearing white jeans is that your options are limitless. The trick is to find a pair of white jeans that works with your beautiful figure. No two jeans are cut the same way. I know it’s not always fun trying on a bunch of jeans, but once you’ve found that perfect pair, the style possibilities will be endless. Also, don’t forget to check the rear view. Even the best quality jeans can have some see-thru, especially white jeans, which tend to be fabricated with lighter material. When you sport your white jeans, be cognizant of your choice of underwear color/pattern.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day! See you next time. XO ~ Michelle
