Here’s How to Wear Your White Jeans This Winter

As has been discussed around here, I’m pretty much the Ambassador for Wearing White Jeans in the winter.

It’s amazingly fresh and modern-looking, and there’s no better budget-friendly style strategy than taking the pieces you already have and wearing them in a new way. You know?

… And as promised, I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite ways to style your white jeans for some end-of-the-season inspiration.

Looks I love

Nothing looks fresher than a sleek pair of white jeans worn with an oversized sweater. Pair your winter whites with blush and soft grey tones for a feminine, dreamy palette.

Go super casual in a pair of white skinny jeans and an everyday white t-shirt. An all-white foundation gives you the freedom to experiment with accessories, but stick to a few complementary colors.

Tie the look together with a bold scarf and matching pair of pumps (or flats), as originally styled here.

Texture, texture, texture: This is the key to wearing white jeans in the winter. Keep your lighter fabrics (like chambray and linen) relegated to spring months.

Any blazer-based outfit is perfect for the office, but with flared white denim, this look is great for the weekend, too. Make sure your shoes are round-toe and neutral (or that your toes can peek out from under your pants).

Lots of layers, period. I’ve been gravitating toward soft color palettes this season — makes for a very refreshing palette cleanse.

White skinny jeans play well with cozy, extra-voluminous knits. Style a slouchy sweater for the perfect weekend ensemble — and add polish to the look by slightly tucking in the front of your shirt.

I love to wear head-to-toe white in the winter, but a pop of red is a good measure. (A healthy dose of texture a la a wool vest, too!)

Stick to a palette of neutrals. Camel-colored accessories are always chic — even if they’re of the casual variety.

Style tips:

Lastly, here are a few general styling tips on wearing your white jeans:

  • If you’re clumsy (like I am) or tend to get your garments dirty, go with Joe’s Jeans stain-resistant denim. They’re amazing!
  • Generally speaking, if you’re going volume on the bottom (with, say, a pair of flared white denim), stick to something structured or fitted up top.
  • When in doubt, tuck it in. Whether it’s a t-shirt or a blouse, this will make your look appear more pulled-together.
  • If you’re trying to hide your tummy, go for a mid- or high-rise jean. I like J.Crew’s toothpick style, which ranges in size from petite to tall.
  • Personally, I don’t generally like to pair calf- or knee-high boots over my white jeans (I feel like it cuts my leg in half), but I love how Luella & June tucked ’em into chestnut-hued riding boots (below).
