While we hardly advocate for stowing them away for the rest of the year, few things are as summery as a crisp pair of white jeans. And with Memorial Day finally upon us, there’s no better time to embrace the season and give your darker denim a break.
For the less spill-prone (or more adventuresome), white-on-white is almost always a winning combination; try yours with a plain tee, an off-the-shoulder top, or a loose, breezy blouse. For a less buttoned-up look, pairing black Chelsea boots with distressed white boyfriend jeans adds an easy bit of edge. Or, you could always go full Françoise Hardy in a pair of high-waist flares, a striped top, and a scarf tied around your neck. They’re jeans: How can you go wrong?
Ahead, you’ll find 15 outfit ideas to inspire your white denim outfits all summer long, plus shopping picks in case you haven’t picked yourself up a pair quite yet. Keeping them clean, however, is all up to you.
