7 flattering pairs of white jeans picked by a fashion stylist – because they’re easier to wear than you think

The right white jeans are fail-safe and will see you through all seasons and occasions...

It’s the coolest way to wear denim.

We know the thought of wearing white jeans sounds pretty terrifying, but we’re here to tell you they are a lot easier to wear than you think and the right pair will soon become your new best jeans.

Just like their blue counterpart, white jeans are super versatile. Not just a summer staple, they’re easily adaptable to autumn, too, and help keep your wardrobe looking fresh and interesting.

How do you wear white jeans?

Their neutral hue makes them easy to mix and match with your current wardrobe and can be paired with classic tees, chunky knits and your winter coats. Just be careful with your blue stripy T-shirts, which can be stepping into sailor territory when teamed with white jeans.

Tonal dressing is also bang on trend, so try teaming white jeans with similar hues – beige boots, camel sweaters, cream shirts – for a fashion-forward take that will give you some serious style points.

What style to go for?

From mom jeans to straight cuts, there are many variations on the market. As a general rule, we would advise going for a looser or wider fit with a high-rise waist.

Relaxed fits are more flattering than a figure-hugging pair and high waisted jeans will show off your shape, cinching in at your middle for an hourglass silhouette.

What’s more, there’s not just white to consider – shades of ecru and off-white fall into this category, too. They are just as chic and easier on the eye than stark white.

The 7 best white jeans to buy now

The high street is jam-packed full of white jeans to help elevate your autumn wardrobe and we’ve scoured the shops to find the best ones for all shapes, sizes and budgets.

Just be extra careful with your morning coffee and, whatever you do, don’t sit down on the grass. Happy shopping!
