Summer is the “season for white jeans,” as they say — even if we have thrown all silly fashion rules out the window and continue to wear them through fall and winter. Still, there’s something about sunny, warm weather that makes us want to dig out our lighter shades of denim.
Romantic monochrome looks (think: white jeans and a white eyelet blouse) are fair game for a dinner date — even when you’re shoe-less, sipping wine on the balcony of your apartment. Or how about styling them with a matching white denim jacket for a more elevated take on the Canadian tuxedo? There’s certainly no denying the sophistication or polish that a well-fitted pair of white jeans brings to your wardrobe — we’re even into the idea of super-baggy styles as of late, which may be roomy and forgiving, but still chic as ever.
Even though I’ve personally put off shopping for the basic for the fear of certain silhouettes appearing too unstructured or too see-through, I’ve found with time that the appeal of the pants wins in the end, and there really is an option for everyone out there. Ahead, I’ve gathered 12 outfits with white jeans that make me realize the truth about these puppies: they do seem to go with everything and they allow us to switch up our look on our old true blues, keeping the classic denim in our closets guessing.
