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. FYI, product links in this post are affiliate links.
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. The LOFT boyfriend jeans that I have come in white! And they’re 40% off right now!!!
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 Ankle Skinny Jeans in Milk ($158). They are nice and thick, they wear well and don’t stretch out, and they have a comfortable rise. And these AG Stilt Cigarette Leg Stretch Jeans ($123 – that is 25% off!!!!) are amazing. I have this jean in a medium blue wash denim. Other designer options that come highly recommended are these Citizens Skinny Ankle Jeans in Optic White ($178) and Paige Denim Skyline Skinny Jeans in Optic White ($134.25 – that is is a sale price, and those are some fab jeans; I have that style in a dark blue denim that I adore.)
If paying triple digits for jeans makes you break out in hives, never fear. There are definitely more affordable options out there. According to Alison, who tried on a gazillion pairs of white jeans this spring so she could report back to her audience, LOFT does a good job with white jeans. She recommends these Modern Straight Leg Jeans in White ($59, but right now 40% off that price! Also, if you place an order of $125 or more, you get free shipping. Score!) These Mia Skinny Jeans by Kut from the Koth ($79.50) are also worth a try. And Sheaffer recommends these Two by Vince Camuto Stretch Skinny Jeans ($69). Remember, always free shipping at Nordstrom!
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!

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.
