30 Ways to Wear White Jeans This Summer
Like eating watermelon, drinking rosé and looking permanently sweaty dewy, white jeans are an integral part of any summer. But how to style them so they look like they belong to this summer? We’ve got 30 great ideas, courtesy of the following 30 majorly stylish ladies.
With a Vertically Striped Blazer and Ankle-Strap Heels
Notice how PureWow Coterie member Monroe Steele cuffs her jeans to show off her shoes (and slim ankles), tucks in her shirt to highlight her small waist and tops everything off with a vertical striped blazer? Yeah, you’re gonna want to copy that.
With a Wrap Jacket and Pointy Heels
Date night anyone? We love how Katie Sturino’s light wrap jacket cinches in at the waist while a pair of low heels dresses the whole look up.
With a White Tee and Heeled Sandals
See how her T-shirt and jeans aren't quite the same color? That's OK. When you're wearing white on white, you can totally get away with mixing a couple different shades.
With an Off-the-Shoulder Dress and Neck Scarf
We love the idea of tossing a casual dress over a pair of white skinnies. (Just make sure the dress isn’t too form-fitting.) Top it all off with a Frenchie-inspired neck scarf.
With a Button-Down and Jean Jacket
A classic look, for a reason. (Side note: Pay no mind to the pieces of fabric hanging around her hips; they're part of her top but don't have to be part of yours.)
With a Printed Jacket and Slip-On Sneakers
The lesson here (courtesy of Monroe Steele) is that white jeans can be worn interchangeably with darker denim. Just add your favorite jacket, those slip-ons you can’t get enough of and you’re good to go.
With a Trapeze Top and Lace-Up Sandals
Take a page from Melis Lin’s playbook and trick your friends into thinking you're wearing linen. The flared shell top and cool sandals read work-appropriate, even if they’re secretly cool and comfortable.
With a Button-Down and Colorful Shoes
A couple keys to pulling off this look: 1) Keep everything loose. 2) Make sure your pants hit right at the ankle…to help you from looking frumpy and to show off those fun kicks.
With an Off-the-Shoulder Top and Statement Necklace
Holy elegance. The Coterie’s Taye Hansberry pairs a loose frayed-hem silhouette with an un-tucked off-the-shoulder top, collarbone-highlighting necklace and statement-making metallic sandals.
With an Oversize Button-Down and Ankle Boots
Who says you can’t wear ankle boots in the summer? Paired with season-appropriate white jeans they look cool, unexpected and effortless (especially with a loose, I-just-tossed-this-on top).
With a Long Blazer and Pumps
Consider this the most slimming outfit of all time: The long blazer adds length while the cuffed sleeves and pants highlight your tiny wrists and ankles. (We’ll give a pass on the horizontal stripes.)
With a Half-Tucked Top and Mini Bag
In theory, this should be sloppy. But the bright printed shirt, polished bag and bold makeup make it look put-together.
