White jeans for summer? OK, maybe it's not the most groundbreaking. But if you want to give the seasonal staple an up-to-date upgrade, follow the example of Katie Holmes and Jennifer Lopez and opt for a wide-leg version of the style to add to your summer capsule wardrobe.

Holmes was recently spotted in a wide-leg pair in New York City, switching up her go-to slouchy slacks for the more structured bottoms—and looking effortlessly cool in the process. Lopez, meanwhile, couldn't stop wearing the style last summer, and even broke a few fashion rules to rock a pair of white jeans in Paris this past January.

Safe to say, white jeans aren't going anywhere this season, so you might as well invest in the more modern version à la some of our favorite celebs. To make your closet refresh that much easier, I've rounded up three of the best pairs of white wide-leg jeans to shop right this second. (You may or may not thank me when the paparazzi starts following you around.)

Made with a high fitted waist and a touch of elastane for some comfy give, this style from Madewell is a best seller for a reason. "These jeans are so flattering, and make my legs look long and hips [look] slim," says one shopper, who adds that they're "perfect in every way." Considering their retro front and back patch pockets that make them look even sleeker, I'd have to agree. (Psst: They're available in petite, standard *and* tall sizes to boot!)

Featuring classic five-pocket styling, these jeans stand out for their slightly cropped cut that flares out at the ankle, as well as their curve-hugging stretch. Per the brand, the denim is meant to have a vintage feel, constructed of a blend of cotton, modal and elastane spandex. Buyers say they're seriously cute, and rave about the fit, which one says is perfect on the waist and hips. Better yet, the pants are currently on sale for *half off,* so there's no excuse not to snag them.

PureWow editors *love* Agolde jeans, so you can bet they're worth the investment. This crisp white pick from the brand nails the A-list look, with its high waist and straight wide-leg silhouette. If you're looking for a more rigid-feeling denim, you'll love these—they're made with 100 percent organic cotton, so they should have no trouble holding their shape, even after you inevitably wear 'em on repeat this summer (and maybe even winter). J.Lo would approve.
