top 5 ways to wear white denim

over the years, i’ve spent a lot of time writing about how to wear white denim.  it’s one of my favorite pieces in my closet, and one in which i’m not afraid to break all the rules with.  yup. you guessed it:  i wear white jeans year round.  guilty as charged.  and if you’re a fashion rule-breaker like me, then today’s post is for you.  we’re going to walk through 5 ways to wear white denim. i’ve even got an accompanying YouTube video for you, so make sure to check that out.

with a jean jacket 

jean jacket is something we most likely have in our closet.  and no matter the color or fit of that jacket, it will always work with white denim.  want to mix things up?  throws a patterned shirt underneath.  want a pop of color?  how about a pair of red shoes.  just have fun.

with a white tee & duster

when the temps start to get mild, i love to have a monochromatic outfit.   white-on-white is very elongating and looks good on all of us.  pro tip:  add a brown belt to break up the white—just a bit.

with a safari jacket 

next up is the classic safari/utility jacket.  when i’m wearing white denim, i love to have a brown accent piece.  and there’s nothing better—nothing more classic—than a safari jacket.  but don’t think you have to stick with brown.  this style will work with any muted color.  an olive utility jacket would go just as great with a pair of white jeans.

with a black moto jacket 

black moto jackets never go out of style.  in fact, they made my top 10 classic items that transition well to spring.  a black moto jacket is featured here again in this classic look.  i mean, can you really go wrong with this pairing?

with gingham 

rounding out the list today is a gingham shirt.  such a classic.  so preppy.  one of my favorites.  just like many of the above looks, i’ve brought in a brown belt as a cute little accent piece.  notice the block-heeled sandals i’m wearing.  they give this outfit just a bit more sophisticated elegance than it normally would have.  love.

    I’m with you on white denim! I wear it year round. Of course, I do live in southwest Florida, where we have perpetual summer! White denim does get dirty easily, but the problem is solved with having several pair! Lol!

    Love all those looks. My favorite way to wear white denim is with a black tee/sweater and leopard ballet flats. Channeling Jackie O. Now, if this Indiana weather would cooperate!

    I love white denim pants, and wear them year-round as well. It depends on how things are styled, and when done right, they look great in every season. You gave some good looking examples.

    Another post that speaks my language! Love the look of white jeans and capris. Am noting the need for a black & white gingham shirt for my wardrobe & hope it works with my gray hair as it does yours. Also noted Rhonda’s fix for white jeans that dirty easily…have several pair. Check! Love Patricia’s Channeling Jackie O tip, too. Beth, your work is reaching out far and wide. Thanks, again for sharing your gift with us!~

    We wear white denim pants year round here on the Coast & since it can be warm even in December, they don’t look out of time. . I prefer lighter shoes when I wear white pants. I love a nude color with white. . I also like tropical colors in the summer for my shoes & the new gingham covered shoes are going to end up in my closet for sure. Can you tell I love shoes? : )

    Love all your posts – you always look so beautiful! I just ordered a pair of white jeans and am looking forward to trying out some of these looks. I think the denim jacket with striped shirt and black tee/moto jacket are my favorites. I’m also thinking of trying with a chambray shirt, too.
