How to Wear White Jeans Now And Later
Admittedly, I live in a mild climate, but even if I didn’t, I would wear white jeans year-round. No white after labor day is a fashion rule I’ve long since abandoned. White jeans keep you as warm as blue or black denim and are just as neutral so why save them? I know there are folks who never wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day, but if you do, here’s how to wear white jeans now and later. There’s no need to allow great pieces to languish in your wardrobe between seasons because a great pair of white jeans is hard to find.
For mild spring days, a simple sweater with white jeans and slip-on sneakers is perfect. A fuller-leg jean style would allow for ankle socks, but I’m staying warm enough with these no-show Sheec socks. Here I added a scarf for a level of warmth and I love how it dresses up a simple outfit. I promise I don’t wear these sneakers every day, but it seems that way in pictures 🙂
For chilly spring days, a parka and booties do the trick. Opt for neutral-colored booties like taupe, pale gray, or camel for a lower contrast than black. I made the assumption that a pair of flats and a sweater would work on this day, but it turned out to be freezing! I was racing out to get a haircut (hence no earrings) and had to switch to ankle boots with a parka to stay warm.
I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of off-white jeans that don’t cost a fortune and don’t have a warm undertone. I was thrilled to find this pair at a great price. These Madewell High-Rise Perfect Vintage jeans have a tapered leg, the perfect amount of stretch, and are totally opaque.
Animal print pairs beautifully with white jeans, no matter the shade. This animal print blouse is in shades of aqua and blue and is very lightweight. It’ll be fabulous when the temperatures heat up, but for now, it needs some extra coverage so this denim jacket works perfectly.
When the weather warms up, I pair mine with sandals and sneakers alike because nothing says summer like a great pair of white jeans.
Do you wear white jeans all year round?
