I’m posting this morning from our family vaca in Arizona. I thought I’d update this post on how to wear white jeans for spring. White jeans are my very favorite summer staple. I think everyone should have at least one pair in their wardrobe. They’re so fresh and crisp, and they truly go with everything.
I’m going to share what to look for in a pair of white jeans and some of my best product recommendations. Then I’ll show my favorite ways to style white jeans for spring.
Finding the Perfect White Jeans
Consider the cut. I vote for a cigarette style — skinny but not so that they hug the ankle. You can also try boyfriend jeans in white, if you don’t like the idea of a skinny.
Consider the fabric. It is never more important that a pant is thick enough than with a white jean. The last thing you want is for people to see through the jeans to all the imperfections underneath. Generally, you get what you pay for, but you can find some decent white jeans at the lower price points.
I personally love my DL1961 Angel in Milk. They are nice and thick, they wear well and don’t stretch out, and they have a comfortable rise. For a lower price point, LOFT makes a nice, thick white jean. Other designer options I’m loving are the Florence Instasculpt and the DL1961 Emma Legging. I have both in other colors, and the fit is amazing. Joe’s Spotless Skinnies and the Paige Skyline Skinnies are other good choices.
Finally, make sure you have the proper undergarments. Do not wear white undies, and for the love of all that’s decent, don’t wear a bright color! Go for a neutral panty that is close to your skin tone in a seamless style that doesn’t create any unnecessary creases. Trust me, no one wants to see that!
How to Wear White Jeans
There are soooo many ways to wear white jeans. Here are a few of my favorite white jeans outfits from past years. You can see that the possibilities are limitless.
Of course I’m always looking for new ways to style the clothes I have in my closet so I went to Pinterest to get some inspiration for how to wear white jeans this summer season! Click on the images to get to the original source (if I could find them; so many pins are linked incorrectly.)
1. White jeans with chambray. Brown accessories or silver or a pop of yellow or pink can all work well with this combination.
2. White jeans with white. Either gold or silver accessories work well with this classy look.
3. White Jeans with Coral. Love the turquoise necklace and tan/gold accessories in this outfit.
4. White with pastels… super on trend this spring. The nude accessories are perfection with this outfit.
5. White jeans with warm neutrals. How classy is this!?
6. White and gray is always a classic combo. Love the pop of coral too!
7. White and black. You simply can’t go wrong with this combination.
You really can’t do white jeans wrong! For tons more ways to style white jeans, check out my Summer Style Pinterest Board! (And follow me on Pinterest, yo!)

We are having family photos taken in a few weeks and I’ve been debating what bottoms I should wear, knowing that white jeans would coordinate well with the top I have in mind and with what the rest of my family is wearing. But, I’ve been really nervous that they won’t photograph well or won’t be flattering. I think this post may push me over to the go for it side!
I love white jeans with nude! That first look is my favorite!
I LOVE white pants for spring. Now, to fit into my pair from last year!
Such great ideas! I wore mine yesterday for the first time this year. Made me happy all day. 🙂
Excellent post and thanks so much for the shout out! You look awesome in your white jeans. So many great pairing options here. I’m pinning this post for my spring style challengers to get some inspiration!
Nice post and love how you styled the jeans. I was contemplating picking up white jeans at Target yesterday. I guess I should.

I seriously cannot get enough of white jeans this spring. (Okay, maybe this year because I have been wearing them year round.) They add such a crisp look to an outfit. Love all of your outfit options and inspiration pics, including some of my personal favorites like the coral blouse on With Love From Kat.

I love white pant’s!!! Have you check out polka dot white pant’s they make your legs more skinnier because of the print!! Love this post anyway’s, some white jean’s look funky on me, but on these people they look amazing! 🙂
I really need to find me a great pair of white jeans asap…..thanks for these inspirational images!
I was always afraid to where white jeans but finally got my first pair last fall. It’s been so cold so I’ve only worn them with sweaters so far. Love all of the styling options you posted today!
Is the 40% off at LOFT in stores as well? Haven’t bought any of their pants before so I want to try them on before I guess my size!
Love this post! I’m already wearing my white jeans today (Talbots & love them!!!). I’ve enjoyed wearing them this spring with light grey and a pop of bright pink. Today I’m wearing them with a navy tank and a light purple striped blouse that has some accenting navy dots. Wearing the blouse open and breezy. And finishing it all off with navy flats. I do love white jeans with pastels, so soft.
I’m terrified of white jeans but the more posts like this I see the more inclined I am to try and wear them at least once!
I love the different colors you can use with the white. Each person can find what top works best for them!
TJ Maxx and Marshall’s are a great option for white jeans too. I found some designer white jeans there last spring. Can’t wait to break them out!
I have a pair of white shorts but not jeans. I love the outfits you put together.
I’m currently participating in the April AtoZ Challenge writing “Things My Husband Has Broken”. It is a funny month at http://AMomsPointOfView.com so come by and check it out!
I have white jeans from Jones New York that I like. They run big, I think. The best price I was able to find was ordering from Bon-ton (which we don’t even have here in TN!) with coupon codes.
They are more of a bootcut, which I don’t love, but they are nice and thick and the only option I’ve ever really liked for my size.
This is such an awesome post, you look great in all those looks!! I’m in love with all the options you’ve showcased and styled here! I’m on the hunt for the perfect white skinnies for spring myself. Have a great weekend Jo-Lynne:)
I’m due for a new pair of white jeans! Love all of this inspiration, especially the white on white look!

White jeans are definitely a year-round favorite for me! (Ironically I wear them the least in the summer because it’s usually too hot, so I opt for shorts instead.) Love all of your white jeans outfits and I think I have all of the same looks pinned that you featured here! Obviously I can’t get enough of these!

I love this post! I am excited to wear my new white jeans which are just a little too snug right now, but I’m in a Biggest Loser competition at my school, so they should fit soon. 😉 Anyway, I recently got a chambray “popover” (like a button-up, but the buttons only go about halfway down the front) at Target and a pair of chambray espadrille wedge sandals at the Gap outlet and can’t wait to put them with white jeans. I also love the coral with white – so summery!
Ohh have fun in AZ. This is great inspiration!

Thanks for the styling tips – I have yet to find THE ONE pair perfect for me!!
Welcome to my beautiful city 🙂 I hope you are enjoying the lovely temperatures! I’m a huge fan of the white jean as well, just keeping them clean is the frustrating part! hehe.
Love how you styled all of them, especially the white and black!

Thanks, Robin. We love it here. I wish we could stay and buy a house and live here. LOL!!!
Love white jeans, but I no longer have a pair! I need to find some this year!
Love white jeans for Spring and Summer. Hope your son is feeling better. Happy Easter to you.
Wondering if I could get away with white jeans for Easter?
Love your takes on the white jeans style! That last pinterest picture with the black shirt and leopard belt is my favorite!
I wanna know where to find the belt…I love the “wear white jeans with warm neutrals” the belt, do you know where I could find one like it?
I wish! No, I’m sorry, I found that on Pinterest, and it’s old. That is such a cute belt, though, isn’t it???
Your posts are so helpful and full of good tips! Do you know where I can purchase the coral top in #3? (with turquoise necklace)
Hey Gail. I don’t know about that specific top, but this one is somewhat similar: http://bit.ly/1qu0K1y
Any idea where I can get the outfit for #5? My GF loves the outfit and I’d love to surprise her! I’m a guy, so I’m terrible at finding these things, lol
Hi! Love your ideas and style! Can you tell me what brand purse that is on #5. Thank you!
Hi! I’m sorry, but I don’t know the brand of that bag. The link to that image no longer works – I found it on Pinterest.
I love white and colourful top
can you tell me where you got the gold tone bangle bracelets? The #5 white jeans and neutrals
I am always for different ways to wear my white jeans, this post has given me some great ideas. I am curious though, where did you find the gray and white sweater and the chambray shirt?
