White jeans — you know ’em, you love ’em, you wear them all year. They’re slimming, they’re stylish, and they replace your basic, boring blue jeans when you need to hit refresh on your wardrobe. Below, we share our seven favorite items to wear with our beloved white jeans:
- With a Chambray Shirt
White jeans and chambray tops just scream summer as much as ice cream or lime margaritas. Make the classic look your go-to for all summer barbecues or dress up for a night out with killer heels. The look can also transition into fall with a simple jacket or blazer thrown over the outfit to make it more apple-picking than barbecue.
2. With Bold Accessories
Do you have an of-the-moment bag or totally crazy pair of earrings you adore but have no clue what to wear them with? Look no further than your faithful old pair of white jeans. They won’t dress down the outfit like a pair of blue jeans would, but they are an easy, neutral backdrop to a statement bag or eye-catching jewelry. Keep the rest of the look neutral so the accessories really stand out.
3. With All White
All-black is a tried and true slimming secret (that’s no longer a secret), but I bet you haven’t heard the slimming benefits of all-white. It’s basically just as slimming as all-black, but can be worn in the summer months (without people thinking you’re a vampire), and looks extra refreshing and stylish. Plus, you’ll be showing off your great curves rather than hiding behind dark colors.
4. Under a Blazer
Tired of the same old pantsuit you wear to work every day? Swap your matching navy or black trousers for a pair of white jeans (or trousers) for a look that’s instantly trendy and appropriate to wear to work. Not to mention, white under a darker color blazer will lengthen your legs and might give you the confidence to rock that 9 am meeting or presentation (not that you need any help with confidence, but a good outfit can’t hurt!).
5. With A Checkered Shirt
Lumberjack-chic more your style? Give your white jeans a relaxed and casual feel with a checkered shirt. Any color of checkers would work because it’ll offset the bright freshness of crisp white jeans, looking a whole lot chicer than your typical checkered shirt and blue jeans. Wear with heels for a more sophisticated occasion, or dress down with ballet flats or booties.
6. With All-Black
Name a more iconic duo than black and white — I’ll wait. An easy go-to that is not typically thought of is pairing a simple black shirt and black heels with your white jeans (because we know you have all three of these staples in your closet). It’s the easiest outfit ever for a great night out, and everyone at the bar with the same old blue jeans and white top will be so endlessly envious of your stylish combo, they’ll never know how easy it was to throw together.
7. Under a Denim Jacket
When summer starts to transition to fall or spring starts to transition to summer (or that office AC is brutal), you want to live in your denim jacket. So why not throw it on over a denim staple like your white jeans? It’s the easiest outfit ever, especially if you’re not partial to the Canadian tuxedo (blue denim, head to toe), but love the easiness of both jeans and a denim jacket. Say hello to your summer uniform.
