In the past white denim has been a bit of a no-go but these days white jeans are a refreshingly alternative to darker denim. Here are some tips for pulling off white jeans for all occasions.
Unlike black, white tends to blow things out so avoid excess fabric, which will further exacerbate the issue – best to go for a slim fit for the most flattering look. On the flip side, too tight is not right.
White jeans can be smartened up pretty easily. Think of them as the perfect base to work with, not the main focus of your outfit. If you’re looking to bring a sharper edge, add a blazer and shirt. For a more casual but just as polished look, add a white T-shirt and a blue denim jacket for a twist on double denim. Just don’t forget to keep your white jeans white, stains ruin the look.
Finally, don’t forget the footwear. A black shoe on the end of a white leg is strong contrast so best to stick with muted tones in classic styles, you can’t go wrong with white tennis shoe or brown brogues to tie the whole look together.
