One of THE BEST Ways to Wear Your White Jeans With Confidence!

Long Tops to Wear with White Jeans

How many of you find white jeans tough to wear? They are definitely tricky. The color alone makes us look larger and the fabric is often less forgiving than traditional denim. The fail-safe pairing for your white jeans, especially when you want to cover up a tummy, is to wear them with a longer top. You can find a bunch of long tops that are perfect for your white jeans, skinny jeans, even leggings below. I also share some additional KEY tips for styling your white jeans the right way.

9seed Puff Sleeve Top

This gauzy 100% cotton top is lightweight and breathable, a beautiful color, and long enough to cover your bottom! I styled it with a pair of flared white jeans and did a front tuck. But you could wear it untucked too. I love the puffed sleeves and cool raw hem detail. You could wear this top all summer long with white jeans, regular denim jeans, or shorts…even as a swim coverup.

Tips For Finding & Wearing White Jeans

Here are some KEY tips to help you pick out the perfect pair of white jeans and style it the right way. Plus, I share everything you need to know, including the best jean silhouettes for your body shape, in this video.

  • Size up – The tighter the jeans, the less forgiving they are. To avoid showing those lumps and bumps, size up one size. I do NOT like it when I can see every wrinkle in my knees through the denim. That’s my test!
  • Fabric – high-quality, thicker denim will be more flattering.
  • Fit – Pick a silhouette that fits and flatters your body. Seems like a no-brainer…but worth repeating! If you know a certain brand looks good on you, try that brand’s white jeans! If you prefer wide leg, go with the flares! Don’t know what your body shape is? This post is a must-read.
  • Pockets – Be careful with the pockets. Since white is usually see-through, you can sometimes see the pockets through the jeans. This creates bulk that you don’t want! Look for white jeans that don’t have pockets in the front or have fake pockets.
  • VPLs – Visible panty lines are another thing to think about when wearing white jeans. Make sure you wear underwear that is nude, seamless, and doesn’t show through your jeans. These are my favorite underwear that I wear with everything.
  • All White – Wearing all one color is very flattering and an all-white look is my favorite. Add different tones and textures to add depth.
  • 3rd Layer – Adding a third layer always adds style! If you’re in a warmer climate, you can try a chiffon duster or caftan. For cooler climates, try a blazer, cardigan, or vest!
  • Shoes – Your shoe choice is important too! If you want your legs to look longer, wear a neutral-colored shoe. Nude, white, metallic, gold, silver, rose gold… will all keep your legs looking longer. Try pointed toe for even more length.

  1. Thank you for your blog. I check in everyday. Thanks for sharing your hardships as a Mom. Always nice to know someone else has been there. God bless you.

  2. Hi Erin, I am 67 and I have been following you for about a year. You have taught me so much!!! My idea of updating my wardrobe was to go buy a couple pairs of black jeans, usually at costco, and a few new shirts (usually frumpy sweatshirts) to wear with the jeans. my husband and I have reached a point in our lives where we can afford to buy some nicer things, but I had fallen into the middle age frumpy pit, and i had no idea what to pick or how to style anything. I felt awful about myself. I had looked around at various style bloggers and found that either they were either too young or too matronly for my taste. you show things at all price ranges and most importantly how to style them. I always thought that styling outfits and caring how you look was vain and frivolous, but now i realize how much happier i am, and that i have more confidence, i find that it’s easier to be kind to others and spread good feelings around. see what you started!! keep up the good work, god has blessed you with a great talent, thank you for developing it and passing it along to us.

    1. What an amazing note to read!! Thanks for making my day, Carole!! I am SOOOO happy you are happier. And, I can’t tell you how much your note means to me. Thank you! Erin xo

  3. So happy you had a wonderful time in paris!! Thank you so much for showing us how to style our clothes. I always look forward TO YOUR ADVICE WHETHER IT BE THE NEWLETTER OR YOUR VIDEOS. I LOVE THE DRESS OVER THE JEANS. I DON’T HAVE THE BODY FOR JUST THE DRESS BUT I WOULD BE COMFORTABLE WITH IT OVER JEANS. I NEED TO GET TO WALMART!! tHANKS AGAIN.
