7 Pairs of White Jeans I’ll Be Living In This Summer!

Best White Jeans

White jeans are one of those wardrobe basics you should definitely have for summer! And, you can absolutely wear them well into the fall, and winter seasons. That whole antiquated fashion rule, “no white after Labor Day” is no longer relevant! There are some key things to look for when shopping for white jeans that are different from light and dark denim. I’ll walk you through 7 pairs of flattering white jeans I’m currently loving…

Mother Hustler Ankle Jeans | Best White Jeans

#1) Mother Hustler Ankle Jeans

If you’re a subscriber, you’ve probably seen these jeans before. They are my go-to denim style in all washes. I love them so much I have them in white, black, and a few other blue denim washes. This white pair is SO good…the fit is great, they have an almost 11” rise so you feel secure but not too sucked in, and the inseam length (26”) is perfect on me for wearing with sneakers, sandals, heels, or pretty much any shoe. The denim is super high-quality and not see-through at all. They run true to size but with any white jeans, I typically size up one size to give some extra room because white denim is usually less forgiving.

#2) DL1961 Wide-Leg Jeans

These DL1961 jeans are a new addition to my white jean-drobe and I can already tell they will be heavy hitters for me this summer. They have pocket details in the front that can be tricky depending on the tummy area. But they’re super smoothing and skimming. The wide-leg silhouette is also super flattering. They have an 11.5” rise and a 31” inseam, which means I have to wear them with heels. But you could also easily get these hemmed. They run true to size.

DL1961 Cropped Bootcut Jeans | Best White Jeans for Summer

#3) DL1961 Cropped Bootcut Jeans

If you’re more petite and looking for a pair of white jeans with a shorter inseam, these are a great option! They have a 27” inseam so depending on your height, you may or may not need to get them hemmed. I’m 5’4” for reference. These jeans have a high-rise (10”), built-in shapewear, and the pockets are sewn shut, which makes them incredibly slimming. I also love the angled raw hem that gives them a little extra style detail. They run true to size.

#4) Maje Button-Detail Wide-Leg Jeans

These wide-leg pants by Maje are super on-trend, flattering, and versatile. I LOVE the button detailing down the sides. It’s such a chic detail that really elevates the pants and makes them look very luxe. Yes, these are technically white pants, but they really fit like jeans…which I LOVE!

#5) AG Raw Edge Jeans

In case you couldn’t tell…wide-leg jeans are very on-trend right now, and I’m loving it! They’re so flattering. This pair of AG jeans is one of my new favorite pairs of wide-leg jeans. They have a 10” rise and 27” inseam. Because of the raw hem, you could cut these yourself instead of taking them to a tailor to get hemmed, but the length is perfect for me with heels.

#6) GRLFRND Split Hem Jeans

These white jeans by Grlfrnd were a new find for me last summer and I’ll be pulling them out again this year too! The fit is amazing, the denim is super high-quality, and they’re modern. These are incredibly flattering because of the high waist, which helps cinch your tummy and lengthen your legs. My favorite part about these jeans is the split raw hem. It’s such a fun, elevated style detail. And of course, they pass the see-through test…no woman wants VPLs (visible panty lines) or denim so thin you can see the pockets!

Kut From the Kloth Mom Jeans

#7) Kut From the Kloth Mom Jeans

I haven’t had the chance to take many photos wearing these Kut from the Kloth jeans just yet, but they are too good not to share! They have a bootcut silhouette, high waist (10.25″), and are incredibly comfortable. And… aren’t see-through at ALL. They have quite a bit of stretch to them, but you should stick with your normal size. The frayed hem is a nice, modern detail and the length is perfect on me. But they’ll be more cropped for you taller ladies. They are also super affordable…only $94! But fit and quality are not at all compromised.

  1. I LOVE my other pairs of Kut from the Kloth jeans (which are currently all too big since I’m down from a 31 to 28-29 right now)… new jeans are needed! Been searching for non see thru, high waisted, not $200, not skinny leg white jeans. But the inseam length on the ones suggested here is just too short – I’m above 5’4. I’d really prefer 28-30” and have short jeans that don’t hit the floor or my shoes. Any other style non see-thrus with longer inseams? I’m willing to hem a 33 lol For the price, Kut Kloth jeans I’ve found to have a nice fit!

  2. White jeans is among my favorites for summer. Last night I wore my low rise white jeans with a red floral crop top to show off my belly ring paired with a red 5 inch high heel sandal. Boyfriend was very happy with the look. As for you I love all of the options here especially the flared bottom jeans that show off that stylish green mule sandals.

  3. I got the Grlfrnd jean with the side slit. LOVE THEM! One piece of advice. I gave them my jean size from Levi and they told me to get the same size for these. I actually needed to size down 1 size from my Levis and could have go down 2 sizes if I wanted a less “girlfriend” fit. The jeans are great but, they run a little bigger than Levis. Hope that helps someone else get the right pair the first time.


  4. Great selection! I’m still, however, on the hunt for a high waisted, bootcut (but not wide leg) white denim pair WITHOUT the frayed edge so it’s a bit dressier to wear out to dinner at a club. I know I can hem the frayed options above but I’m 5’8″ so often don’t have excess to hem. Thank you!

  5. These are Gorgeous! I think youve said that youre 5’4”…did you have to hem them? Looks like you may need a bit of a heel with them, right? Im about your same height.
