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 white jeans easy to mix and match with your current wardrobe and can be paired with classic tees, chunky knits and 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 of white jeans should I go for?
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 best white jeans to shop now
The high street is jam-packed full of white jeans to help elevate your 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!
1. Topshop Editor Straight Leg Jeans
Best white jeans for fashion-forward shoppers
The fashion set cast aside their skinnies a few seasons ago, opting instead for a straighter cut. Slightly wider in the leg without swamping your frame, they're a little more forgiving.
2. Boden Cropped Turn-Up Jeans
Best cropped white jeans
Petites, listen up! Investing in cropped jeans is a wise move, saving you money on potentially costly alterations. They'll make your legs look longer and slimmer too.
3. The White Company Organic Cotton Brompton Boyfriend Jeans
Best white boyfriend jeans
Say hello to your new weekend wardrobe staple. A smarter alternative to your trusty leggings that doesn't force you to compromise on comfort, boyfriend jeans boast soft fabrics and a suitably relaxed fit.
4. M&S Mom High Waisted Jeans with Stretch
Best white mom jeans
Mom jeans aren't for everyone, but we happen to love this retro-inspired shape. It's the tapered ankle that sets them apart from straight jeans, and makes them perfectly suited to taller frames.
5. Levi's 724 High Rise Straight Jeans
Best classic straight white jeans
Denim trends come and go, but a straight leg is always a classic choice. The high-waist is super flattering too.
6. Mother of Pearl Wide Leg Organic Cotton Jeans
Best wide leg white jeans
Wide leg jeans are a huge trend, and the perfect way to wear this light, easy-breezy shade. Wear with chunky sandals on warmer days or layered over lace-up boots in the colder months.
