When White Jeans Are Too White

Good morning, I hope you’re having a good weekend! The sweater in today’s post was low inventory, but it has just been restocked in all sizes, yay!!!

LOFT shimmer striped 3/4 sleeve sweater with Everlane The Skinny Jeans in Bone

This shimmer striped 3/4 sleeve sweater from LOFT has a pleasing combination of gold, silver, aqua, peach, and ivory.

I love the sparkle in the silver and gold stripes, and it’s super lightweight so you can wear it all summer long. It’s perfect for when you’ll be indoors in the a/c.

This sweater is 40% off with code SUMMER.

I first tried to pair it with these pure white jeans, and they just looked off with the softer tones in the sweater.

I mean, it works and all, but I happened to have these Everlane jeans hanging in my closet, so I switched, and they’re the perfect pairing.

These are the Everlane high-rise skinny jeans in Bone, and they’re the perfect alternative to stark white jeans when your top has more muted tones.

If you wear a lot of muted tones, and you feel like white jeans sometimes look too stark, you may want to try an off-white.

They call these Bone, which is accurate. They’re not a warm white, but they’re softer than the pure white denim that we typically see this time of year.

These jeans run small, so I recommend sizing up if you are in between sizes. I have them in the 29. They’re also very affordable at $68.

They come in 3 inseam lengths, and I purchased the ankle so they would be more cropped for summer. (The regular is 28.5”, the ankle is 26.5″, and the tall is 30.5″.)

I kept the look casual with flat gold sandals. These are sold out, I believe, but there are tons of other options for gold sandals available right now.

Silver would work too, as would nude or beige, but I’d keep them light.

My bag is also an off-white, and it has gold hardware, so it works perfectly with this soft pastel outfit. I completed the look with a mixed metal bangle and oversized pearl studs.
