I haven’t worn my white jeans since last summer, and when I got them out of storage a few weeks ago I was trying to remember how I styled them last year. I seem to recall wearing them to death, and I wasn’t wrong when I checked back over my Outfits page to see just how many times they appeared on the blog…!
Here’s six ways to wear white jeans in the summer – they can be worn all year round but I always feel they work best when the sun’s out and the layers are lighter.
Are you wearing white jeans this summer – and if so how are you styling them? Do you favour skinnies still or are you rocking another style… let us know in the comments!
1. With other neutrals to create a monochrome look
I love white jeans with a white top to create a head-to-toe white look, but if you’re hesitant about looking too white then try a whole bunch of neutrals instead. I teamed my white skinnies with tan, marl grey and silver (jewellery) to keep it looking soft and light.
2. With brights and a hint of black
White is, of course, the perfect neutral – so what’s better than adding a load of brights? Here I added my striped neon pink blazer with a bright blue scarf and aviators, and topped it off with a sunshine yellow tote. The touch of black in the heels and tank was the perfect way to make the colours (and the white) “zing” even more.
3. With more denim in a different colour – and coloured brogues
There’s no reason you can’t do double denim when wearing white jeans – and you’re more than likely to have denim jackets or shirts in various shades of blue to add. Extra shades of blue from scarves or a top and the brightest brogues or flats will tie everything in to create a cohesive and fresh look.
4. With a patterned or graphic tee and biker jacket
A simple outfit of a bright t-shirt and white jeans is a great combination for the summer. The addition of Sperry Top Siders and a biker jacket thrown over the shoulders for chilly evenings add a nice contrast.
5. With a patterned blazer or pyjama jacket
Instead of a patterned t-shirt wear a patterned blazer instead. Here I wore a pretty pyjama jacket and some fierce heels – the great thing about white jeans is that they look as great with brights as they do with neutrals.
6. With a dress layered over the top
And finally – something completely different! I layered a vintage dress (it’s actually a 1930s robe) over my white skinnies. A massive statement belt, choker necklace and skyscraper heels make a perfect evening outfit for the summer.
Here’s the best white jeans I could find on the interwebs (the ones I’m wearing in the pictures above are the Asos Ridley white skinnies):
