How To Style White Jeans 5 Ways For Summer

how to style white jeans for summer

Every closet should have a good pair of white jeans that you feel good in. It may take a while to find them, but once you do, you can create so many summer outfits with them. They’re a nice departure from your standard blue jeans too. They feel light, airy, and compliment the season perfectly.

There are so many ways to wear white jeans. And so many white jean options too! Just take your go-to denim silhouette and try it in white denim. I love a good wide leg crop like the Old Navy ones above (these are similar). But also am always a fan of a high waist wide leg jean too. And then you can’t go wrong with skinny jeans. My recommendation is always to find white denim that isn’t too thin. It can not be super forgiving and may show some imperfections. And hey, we all got them! It’s just a matter of if you want them to be showcased in a see-through white jean or not. And personally, I do not!

How To Style White Jeans 5 Ways

Simple In Black And White

One of the most classic combinations is to go black and white. It’s a no brainer, super easy and looks great no matter what. Top your favorite white jeans with a black tee, tank or blouse. And then pair with black espadrilles or sandals. It’s a simple way to put together white jeans.

A Favorite Tee & Denim Jacket

One of the easiest ways to style your white jeans is by pairing it with your favorite tee and a denim jacket. It’s my no fail combo and one I always gravitate towards. Chambray or denim works so well with a white jean that it makes for a great third piece to complete a look.

Bold Color + Prints

White jeans are a perfect neutral backdrop for bold colors and prints. Top your go to white jeans whether they’re high waisted, shorts, or a white mini, with a bold color. When thinking of what shoes to wear with white jeans and a bold top, go neutral! A brown leather sandal or neutral espadrille works perfectly.

Classic Stripes With White Jeans

When in doubt, just add stripes. It’s an effortless combination that looks a little preppy and classic. Go for blue and white stripes for a nautical feel. Or go for color! This is also one of my favorite outfits I’ve done. A simple red and white striped tee with white jeans.

All White Monochromatic Outfit

When all else fails, just go all white! It’s so easy to do. Add a white linen shirt to your favorite white denim jeans. Or choose a white eyelet blouse. So many ways to do this. Easily add in a bit of color with a brown leather belt and sandals. Or just go head to toe white with whi sandals instead. Either way it always looks put together when you go monochromatic.

    Hi Jessica,

    I am a new subscriber to your blog and have not received your last 2 posts. The last one I received was on wearing espadrilles. Should I resubscribe? Thanks for any help.

    You always look so great. I love white jeans and I agree that if they’re too thin they not only look cheap but the sheerness can cause them to look not so crisp and truly white. Love the ones you’re wearing in the top photo!

      Yeah sometimes it’s worth spending a little more on them. But the ones I’m wearing are actually from Old Navy (super old). Just gotta keep hunting for the good ones!
