Oh, white jeans. I’ve loved you on others for years but my picky picky self and I struggle to style you in a way that’s flattering and interesting. You are a trickster of a pant color and you draw too much attention to yourself. You’re SO bright! Well, I’ve finally found something to compete with you that completes you well, in my opinion.
The Formula: Bright Top + White Jeans + Neutral Shoe
I’m quite sure I’m pickier than most when it comes to what to wear with white jeans…I mean, they’re white. Like EVERY color pretty much goes with them, right? Well, apparently not to my brain. I am loving how the brightness of these tops matches the intensity that is white denim. I’m finally happy. Haha.
I’ve honestly slugged through so many different combos for my white jeans and this is what I’m loving best right now. I love that the bright top balances well with the bright white jeans and the neutral shoe makes legs look longer since it blends in and doesn’t cut off your legs at the ankle.
The straight cut of these white jeans also helps them flatter more than skinnies. I’m finding that was part of my previous issue, too. Whew. Many of the jeans I tried just. showed. every. bump. These balance out the top of my legs and the calves a bit more = more flattering.
I like a little distressing on my white jeans, too, so they’re not TOO crisp and preppy, but that’s just me. I’m so excited to have found a little formula that works for me and I think it’s a fun combo for spring. It would be easy to translate into summer with a bright tank or tee and neutral sandals.
Red Tee – We The Free Cleo Tee – Super cute in bright colors. So soft and love the distressing paired with the white jeans here especially. Runs a little big but cute with a pretty bra peeking out. Wearing Medium.
Jean Jacket – Madison Kane Denim Jacket – This has become my favorite jacket right now. I wear it with just about every outfit, even my workout wear to add a little more street vibe. It’s perfectly oversized but not too much. Wearing a Small.
Taupe Boots (similar) – Naturalizer Westing Bootie – These have been SO versatile and my go-to shoe for wearing with a cropped straight leg jean.
White Jeans – Gap High Rise Slim Straight – I never found the miracle white skinny jean so I think I’ll just stick with the more-flattering straight leg for my white denim. Love the bit of distressing here, too. Fit about a half size small so possibly size up since they’re white. Wearing size 27.
Blue Sweatshirt – H&M Oversized Sweatshirt
Cheetah Boots – Matisse Nelson Bootie – My spring favs. The heel height is just so perfect but they’re still fun and dressy.
Pink Clutch (similar) Michael Kors Pink Clutch – on major markdown!
