As we get into the warmer months I’m adding a few key pieces to my list of must-haves and a pair of white jeans are at the top of the list.
If you’ve been waiting to add wear-forever white jeans to your wardrobe, there is no better time than now. High-street denim options are the best they have ever been; good value, chic and versatile; and now there is even a selection of sustainable styles created from recycled denim that feels every bit as luxurious as regular ones. The most popular style this season? Straight-leg jeans.
My new found devotion to the white straight leg jeans the last few seasons is not a secret. They’re classic, cool and significantly more flattering than the tighter alternative. I’m wearing mine with everything from oversized blazers and heeled mules to statement tops and flip flops.
How to wear white jeans this spring and summer
The perfect cut is the piece that will see you through almost every occasion in your calendar. Style with squared-toed heels and plaid blazer for a chic non-fussy 9-to-5 look or wear with chunky-soled dad sandals and an oversized print shirt for a laidback weekend style.
Dressy white jeans outfits
If you’re looking ways to dress up your white jeans you can’t go wrong with a silk blouse. A well-cut silk blouse is an essential item that will always elevate an outfit no matter how casual it is and it can be flirty or professional depending on how you wear it. For professional setting team your white jeans and silk blouse with a smart blazer and chic ankle boots; for all of your evening events make it look more refined by pairing it with simple slingback shoes, dressy bag and a lot of jewelry to polish things off.
How to make your white jeans office-appropriate
Striking the balance between smart and nonchalant, white jeans will effortlessly see you through from your 9 am meeting to 9 pm drinks. Pair with a classic white tee and an oversized blazer for an instant office-appropriate look and simply add a pair of low heel sandals to make them work just as hard off-duty too.
When it comes to power dressing, oversized tailoring is the freshest way to make things work this spring/summer.
Consider pairing your white jeans with a white classic button-down collared shirt. Since the button down it’s associated with business-casual attire, it’ll instantly introduce office-appropriate vibes to your look.
You can never go wrong with a black and white outfit for any season. When you want a look that’s crisp and classic, there’s nothing like jeans and a simple sweater. This spring pair your white jeans with black sweater for a look that’s equal parts chic and classic. Team with dressier shoes, a ladylike bag, and cool sunnies for extra style points.
