The Best White Jeans In Every Style
From flare to boyfriend to skinny
We're proponents of wearing white jeans year-round. And this spring, any style goes. We’ve found flattering looks in every silhouette--from flare to boyfriend to skinny--along with some suggestions on styling. Just remember to avoid those big rainstorm puddles and you’re golden.
Make sure your white skinnies have a longer rise in back than front for coverage and that the fabric is lightweight enough to be comfy in warm weather without being see-through. The stretchy skinnies from American Eagle ($40) are exactly right. Throw them on with a striped top and leather belt and you?re out the door.
The secret to making this relaxed-fit style look soigné and not sloppy is rolling it up--that way, a bit of slender calf and ankle peek out. Pair these G by Guess ($50) jeans with a simple tee and tailored jacket in contrasting hues, lest you look like a house painter.
The secrets to making torn white denim like these Gap skimmers ($69) look good: Don’t go crazy on the rips and match them with preppy elements like a dark T-shirt and a trench.
Cut with straight lines and only a hint of stretch so that they?re soft when you sit down, the J. Crew stretch matchstick ($105) is the new classic wear-with-anything summer jean. The way to wear this style is to cut it off at the ankle, leaving a raw hem.
A crop top balances out the proportions when you’re opting for a wide leg. Just make sure to get a pair, like these 7 For All Mankind trouser jeans ($198), that are fitted through the waist and rear.
You’ll want to keep the rest of your outfit neat when you’re rocking patched white jeans like this stretch boyfriend pair by Paige ($249).
An homage to '70s cool, this pair by Stella McCartney ($325) has a 36-inch inseam. Wear them with heels to lengthen your legs.
