White jeans — the fresh, some may say…daring or unexpected jeans we’ve come to love for our closets. Really, they can be a closet staple. Yes…you heard that right. Stay for a bit, check out our White Jeans Hub below and we’ll show you just how we rock this classic denim style year-round. Here you’ll find our editors’ favorite pairs of white jeans, which brands seem to do white denim well year after year (no see-through white jeans here), and tips on how to style them. If you’re just looking for white jean outfit ideas, scroll down. We collected all of the articles we’ve ever written featuring these timeless jeans.

Our bottom line? White jeans have a special place in our closets — long after summer has ended. Erase the conventional no-white-after-Labor-Day rule from your mind. And while they can skew preppy, they certainly don’t have to. The key is to stop treating white denim like a summer-only staple…and start rocking them as the season-less neutral they are.

Tips For Styling White Jeans

Tip 1: Rock The Monochromatic Look

One of the easiest ways to make white jeans work in any season? A monochromatic outfit. Wear a white top or even a cream-colored top like Shana. (It also works great for holidays.)

Tip 2: Warm It Up With Autumn Shades

Warm, autumnal shades, like Julieta's gorgeous coat and top, work so well with white jeans. It helps make white denim appropriate for all of fall and winter.

Tip 3: Make It Less Preppy With Graphic Tees

Graphic tees are such an easy way to make any outfit a little bit edgy. Since white jeans tend to skew preppy, adding a graphic tee will help offset it and give a completely different look.

Tip 4: Try Leopard Print

Leopard print works SO well with white jeans. Add a black sweater and brown bag like Julieta to keep the leopard print the main focus. Ultra chic.

Tip 5: Spoof A Suit

Pair your white jeans with a white denim jacket like Shana for a look that’s surprisingly chic. Contrast with some pretty black shoes and a chunky gray scarf. Casual Fridays or a winter date night never looked better.

Tip 6: Wear A Black Top

Black and white are always a classic pairing, but adding white jeans into the mix can create some unexpected contrast and give that Jackie O. look we love. Offset the visual heaviness with a matching black bag and booties.

Our Editors’ Go-To Brands For White Jeans


Not only are most Levi’s sustainably made, but their white jeans come in all of our go-to Levi's styles: 501s, the Wedgie, the 724 straight legs, and 721 skinnies. The white denim is thick, not see-through, and we’ve found it’s best to size up one size, especially in the white.


All DL1961 denim is sustainably made, but we especially LOVE their white jeans. It's both thick (never see-through) and very, very soft. The Hepburn or Rachel styles are two of our favorite styles: both super-chic flares, and some of the most flattering silhouettes we've found. DL1961 also has a line of inclusive sizing that ranges from size 14-24. Look for the "Inclusive" category under the Women's drop-down menu.


Everlane's white jeans are nice and thick — never see through — and come in several beloved styles. The classic skinnies are hard to beat, and they also come in a curvier cut that goes up to size 35. Also check out the Original Cheeky Jean - another team fav.
