18 Ways to Wear White Jeans for Spring and Summer

Greetings, and happy Monday! The sun is shining, it’s warm outside, and it’s a good day to have a good day!

White jeans are one of my go-to spring and summer wardrobe staples, but I’m always amazed by how many women don’t wear them. When I inquire, I usually find that it’s because they’re are afraid of getting dirty.

Friends, white jeans wash!!!

Please, don’t fear the white jeans. They make such a crisp statement this time of year, and you can wear them with pretty much everything.

To illustrate my point, I’ve rounded up 18 ways to wear white jeans for spring and summer.

Also, don’t miss my White Jeans Review & Comparison, where I review a bunch of different pairs of white jeans at a wide range of price points.

I’ll save you some time, though, and tell you my favorites are the Paige Verdugo Ankle Skinny Jeans (splurge) and the Old Navy Mid-Rise Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans (save). I also love the J.Brand Low Rise Crop Skinny Jeans for my more casual white denim outfits.

In these pictures, I’m usually wearing the Paige Verdugo ankle skinnies or the J.Brand cropped jeans.

If you don’t wear skinny jeans, you can sub straight leg or bootcut white jeans for any of these looks, and white pants will usually work as well.

18 Ways to Wear White Jeans for Spring and Summer

In the interest of space and time, I’m not going to link everything I’m wearing in these pictures, but I will provide links to the original posts where you can see all the outfit details. Some are older so not everything is in stock, but the idea here is to recreate these looks by shopping your closet.

#1. Black & White Print Blouse with Turquoise Pumps // A simple date night outfit, or this could even be work wear for some situations. Any colored shoe will do — and even white or nude would work, but I love the unexpected pop of color.

#2. White on White with Serenity Blue // For some reason, I often forget about white on white, but it’s such a chic combination.

#3. Blue & White Stripes // A blue-and-white striped top will always look fresh and classic when paired with white jeans. I like how the navy blue shoes bookend the outfit, but you could also wear nude or white.

#4. Black & White with Pink Sandals // Again, black and white with a pop of color always works. This time I echoed the pink from the shoes in a pair of bold pink earrings.

#5. Red, White & Blue // A classic combination that is a little bit preppy, I especially like to wear these colors in the springtime.

#6. Blush Tee with Floral Neck Scarf // This outfit is super simple, but the silk scarf elevates the look. I like the pastel color palette, but you can certainly do this with brights or jewel tones as well.

#7. Olive Utility Jacket with Grey Tee // You can never go wrong with an olive utility jacket over a grey tee — I often wear this combo with blue jeans, but I love how it works with the white. I wore booties because it was early spring, but Converse or sandals would also work with this look.

#8. Varsity Tee & Converse // This sporty look is great for sporting events, your kid’s soccer game, or just running errands on a Saturday.

#9. Orange & White // This bold combo is super summery; in this case I wore pink and orange sandals, but a neutral shoe would be fine too. I also like how the monogram necklace dresses up the look a bit. (I’m wearing the 3XL with a 16″ chain in gold dipped.)

#10. Grey & White with White Loafers // Love ’em or hate ’em, white loafers are the easiest way to update your wardrobe this spring! If you hate ’em, feel free to wear ballet flats, sandals, or even Converse with this look. The twist front top is a nice alternative to a plain t-shirt.

#11. Blue & White Polka Dots // Another classic blue-and-white combination, this time I wore nude sandals for a dressier look.

#12. Olive & White with Leopard // I usually pair olive with black, but I love how it looks with white this time of year. The leopard shoes are a fun touch, and if you don’t have leopard loafers, ballet flats, pumps, or sandals would work just as well.

#13. Pastel Floral Blouse & Peep Toe Booties // This blouse is long gone, but the idea here is to find a pastel floral print to pair with your white jeans. Florals are trending this season, but choose wisely; they can be aging if they’re too reminiscent of the 1980s. Lucky Brand is doing a good job with florals right now. Search “floral blouse” on their site — direct links aren’t working, for some reason.

#14. White with Chambray // Always a classic combo; I love the gold sandals and accessories with this look.

#15. Grey & White with Espadrille Wedge Sandals // Another grey-and-white combo, I love the monochromatic look. A ruffle sleeve tee is a fun variation on a basic t-shirt, and the espadrille wedge sandals keep it modern.

#16. Black & White with Floral Scarf // In yet another fun black-and-white outfit combo, this time I introduce a pop of color with the scarf and echo it in the pumps.

#17. White on White with a Denim Jacket // One of the easiest ways to do white jeans with items I’m sure you already have in your closet — white tee with white jeans, and top it off with a denim jacket. Add a pair of whimsical shoes for fun!

#18. White and Teal // I think this post illustrates that any color top paired with white jeans works — the key is proper fit, and then choosing accessories and shoes that level up the look and keep it modern. Also, look for tops with little added details such as the lace insets on this one. Unfortunately it’s from a few seasons ago, but you get the idea!

Whew! I hope that gives you some spring style inspiration for ways to wear white jeans. Believe it or not, I have even more white jeans outfits in my blog archives, but these are my favorites and the ones most easily recreated by shopping your closet.
