What to Wear With White Jeans

White Jeans Tips

Before we get into my favorite white jeans and some stylish outfits, let’s start off with some things to consider when hunting for the perfect pair of white jeans.

Size Up

I typically size up one size with white jeans. This gives you a bit more breathing room and forgiveness, especially with the premium brands where the denim just doesn’t stretch as much.  A little extra room can be nice. If you are going for a lower price point, sizing up might not be necessary because they will have some stretch!

Fabric Choice

The thickness of the denim matters since white is inherently see-through. With some of the less expensive brands, you want to watch out for paper-thin denim where you can see every lump and bump, panty lines…ALL of it. A thicker denim will keep everything looking more streamlined and covered.


A high rise jean always makes me feel more supported and comfortable but know what rise you prefer. You can find this info in the item description online. Mid-rise is considered anywhere from 8-9” and high-rise is anything above 9”.

Size Chart

When ordering a pair of jeans, make sure you check the size chart ALWAYS. It just saves a lot of time on the backend and you’re less likely to have to deal with returns.

Shoe Choice

You can wear dark shoes with white jeans, but if you want to elongate your frame and look slimmer, a neutral or skin-tone shoe is going to be more flattering in general.


I get a lot of comments from you all about the staining issue with white jeans. Sure, it’s possible to ruin your jeans with crazy stains, but white jeans, in general, are pretty easy to care for, they just require a little extra TLC.

White Whites

If I’m wearing white jeans to dinner, I strategically place a few napkins over the jeans to help avoid stains, but if I do have a stain, I spot treat as soon as I can and then wash in cold with gentle detergent and NEVER put them in the dryer. That’s really the secret to keeping all of your whites super white!

Favorite White Jeans

I get that finding the perfect pair of white jeans can be tricky, so I’m sharing 5 pairs that I happen to love! You’ll see all of these styled in the 20 outfits below, but here’s a little debrief on each…

1. Mother Hustler Ankle Fray Jeans

One of my all-time favorite pairs of white jeans are the Mother Hustler Ankle Fray Jeans. And actually, they’re one of your favorites too since they are a best seller every year. They’re high-rise and have a great weight to them so they’re not at all see-through. The length is perfect on me (I’m 5’4”) and I can wear them with heels, flats, and sneakers…super versatile!

2. DL1961 Cropped Bootcut Jeans

A similar option to the Mother Hustler jeans are the DL1961 Cropped Bootcut Jeans. They don’t have front pockets which streamlines the front since sometimes pockets can add a bit of bulk. These are another pair of universally flattering and versatile jeans.

3. Mother Hustler Roller Skimp Jeans

I also wanted to share a wider-leg pair of white jeans since wide legs are very on trend right now. This pair is called the Mother Hustler Roller Skimp Jeans (where do they come up with these jean names?!) These jeans are SO good. They are a bit longer so I need to wear a 2” heel or platform sneaker with these.

4. Pistola Wide-leg Jeans

This pair of wide-leg jeans by Pistola is going to be the most budget-friendly white jeans but still high quality. I brought these on a recent trip to Europe with me. These are high-rise, have no pockets, are very streamlined, and are also a great length.

5. Maje Jeans

And finally, the last pair is more of a specialty pair of jeans but I had to include them in my favorites roundup! This pair by Maje is actually off-white with gold button detailing down the bottom of the leg. These are just such a gorgeous pair of jeans. So where the other 4 are more traditional and everyday, these are special and unique!

How To Style White Jeans

How To Style White Jeans

Now for the fun part! 20 outfit ideas inspired by all of my favorite white jeans listed above. You are going to notice there’s a formula here. For the summer: White Jeans + Top + Sandals or Sneakers. And then in the fall, White Jeans + Blouse or Sweater +Booties. You can use these same formulas over and over again by just mixing up the shoes and top. It’s really that simple!

#1) Printed Blouse

In this look I’m wearing the Pistola jeans I mentioned above with a beautiful, printed Alice + Olivia blouse and See by Chloe platform sneakers. The blouse has such a beautiful print blue that reminds me of the Amalfi coast…it’s so gorgeous, very lightweight, and thin so you’ll stay cool and the details are just stunning.

striped top and white jeans outfit

#2) Striped Top

Here I’m wearing the Mother Fray Ankle Jeans with a blue striped Veronica Beard top. I love the higher, ruffle neckline and ruffle sleeve detail which adds some femininity. On my feet, I’m wearing a pair of super comfortable Veronica Beard wedges.

Cobalt Blue Top with white jeans

#3) Cobalt Blue Top

Here I’m wearing the Mother Hustler Ankle Fray Jeans with a beautiful cobalt blue top by Frame. I love this blouse so much and always get compliments when I wear it. I paired it with some comfortable Sam Edelman gold slide sandals that are so perfect for summer.

What to Wear With White Jeans

#4) Elevated T-Shirt

Here’s an elevated tee and white jeans combo. I’m wearing a Veronica Beard puff sleeve ribbed tee with the wider-leg Mother jeans and some rose gold Valentino wedges. This top is both classic and comfortable and is made from a lightweight ribbed knit. It has a split button front which creates more of a subtle V-neck. You can adjust the buttons to get a deeper V if you like. I love the elbow-length sleeves and the banded cuff. I did size down one size to an XS.

In case you’re interested, I wrote a full review on these Valentino Wedges here. I shared details on comfort level, sizing, etc. But, if you just want the quick low down….they are AMAZING!

What to Wear With White Jeans

#5) Chambray Top

Can you tell I’m really loving blue with white jeans lately?! It’s just such a pretty combination. Sticking with the same Mother Hustler wide-leg jeans, I’m wearing a Frame blue chambray keyhole top that’s both classy and comfortable, and then the same Valentino wedges and pearl earrings from the previous look. The top is super soft (and super on sale!) right now.

Powder Blue Top with white jeans

#6) Powder Blue Top

Another blue blouse I absolutely had to share is this one by Karen Millen. It is such a beautiful top with its embroidery details and not only would it look amazing with your white jeans, but for a dressier look it will also look fantastic with white trousers (like I’m wearing here) for the office. It has a Victorian neckline, a subtle puff shoulder and blouson sleeve, and covered buttons…you will absolutely love it! It’s getting limited in sizing but this one is similar and I own and love it too!

Drawstring Top with white jeans

#7) Drawstring Top

Here’s another blue and white striped top, this one by LNA. It has a few beautiful details I wanted to highlight. There’s a thoughtful and intentional button at the sleeve so it will stay rolled up and it also has a cinched, drawstring hemline almost like a bubble hem so you can wear it out or tucked in the front. It’s a great piece!

Butterfly Top with white jeans

#8) Butterfly Top 

Here’s another blouse and white jean combo. This is a printed Alice + Olivia butterfly top with a lovely bold colored print paired with the Mother Hustler jeans and some gold-tone Cult Gaia sandals. I absolutely love this butterfly blouse and while it’s been sold out for a while, I found a few similar options to link below.

Vest and white jeans

#9) Vest

This is more of a trendy option because vests are very on-trend right now! This one by Beaufille and is quite fitted. You can wear a little tank underneath or just wear it by itself as a sexier option. I love the white and beige neutral tones together. It’s so luxe, soft, and feminine. I’m wearing the Mother Hustler Roller Skimp jeans with a Marc Jacobs bag and the See by Chloe wedges. The bag has a removable sporty strap so you can wear it as a crossbody, or shoulder bag and it also has a gold chain-link strap so it’s really versatile since it has black, beige, and brown color tones it literally goes with everything.

Off The Shoulder Top outfit idea

#10) Off The Shoulder Top

Sticking with another lighter look, here I’m wearing the Mother Roller Skimp leg jeans with a sexy one-shoulder ivory top by Acler. I’ve purchased a few pieces by Acler and I’m a huge fan of this line! I just love this all-neutral monochromatic look with lighter tones.

Monochromatic dressing is SO cool, SO easy and SUPER chic. Find more monochromatic outfit inspiration in this post.

White Crochet Sweater outfit

# 11) White Crochet Sweater

Another all-neutral piece for looking extra chic in your white jeans is this crochet sweater by Aqua from Bloomingdales. What I love about this look is the texture! It just adds a lot of interest and depth. I finished off this outfit with those tried-and-true Sam Edelman double-strap slides you’ve seen in a couple of the looks!

Cardigan Sweater & Tank

#12) Cardigan Sweater & Tank 

Here’s a really lovely sweater combo set that feels very modern and current. Both the halter and matching cardigan are in this neutral wearable beige tone. Depending on your skin tone, sometimes these beigy colors can wash you out, so you might want to do a bright lip or something to brighten up your face. I’m wearing the same Pistola jeans as the previous look and then added some brown Sam Edelman flat sandals. To transition this look to fall, just swap the sandals for some cute booties. Simple!

Beach Sweater with white jeans

#13) Beach Sweater

Here’s a beachy sweater look you can wear with your white jeans. I’m wearing this beautiful neutral-colored crochet sweater from J.Crew with the same Pistola jeans as the last 2 looks. I love how light and lovely this sweater is, it’s super comfortable. A little roomy without being oversized…and it’s affordable too! It also comes in the most gorgeous blue and green if you prefer a pop of color with your white jeans.

Lilac Sweater outfit idea

#14) Lilac Sweater

Another sweater option I wanted to show you is the sweater by Veronica Beard in this beautiful lavender color. I paired it with white Mother jeans…with the wide leg. I just love the cable knit and crochet elements. Every time I wear this sweater and this color I get so many compliments. If you’re wondering what your colors are…it’s probably the color you get the most compliments when wearing! This sweater would also transition very easily into fall. Just remember white jeans are not relegated to spring and summer only. You really can easily wear them year-round with a blazer, jacket, moto, cardigan, or a sweater like this one and just add a pair of booties.

Pink Lace Top with white jeans

#15) Pink Lace Top 

Speaking of color…how about pink? Here is a bright pink top by Maje. The photos are making the pink come across as more neon, but it’s actually a really beautiful fuchsia pink. It’s a lace cropped top with buttons down the front and beautiful sleeve details…very pretty! I’m wearing the Mother wide-leg jeans and Valentino wedges.

Striped Pink Top | What to Wear With White Jeans

#16) Striped Pink Top 

Another pink top I wanted to share is this pink and white button-down shirt…also by Maje. It has a puff shoulder and subtle blouson sleeve it’s just a really beautiful blouse with such feminine and pretty details. This may not be your cup of tea, but you can always just look for the same concept in something more classic…without all the puffy details 😉 Linking some options for you below!

Sexy Black One Shoulder Top

#17) Sexy Black One Shoulder Top

Another great go-to with your white jeans is a black top or sweater. This one-shoulder top by French Connection is one example. This one does run small so I suggest sizing up. Black and white is such a chic and lovely combination. I paired it with DL 1961 jeans and some Stuart Weitzman wedges.

white denim outfits

#18) Structured Tee

Another great black and white option for you is this Norma Kamali shoulder pad top with the Pistola white jeans and Open Edit black sandals. I love this top so much because it has a strong shoulder. It has built-in shoulder pads, but they aren’t crazy huge. It’s so sleek and structured and it’s fitted without being too fitted. It’s a great year-round top that would be easy to transition into fall/winter…and easy to layer under your coats and jackets.

white denim women's fashioncargo jacket outfit idea

#19) Cargo Jacket 

This next look is a cargo jacket and white jeans combo featuring those specialty jeans from Maje that I mentioned waaaaay back at the beginning of this post! Here’s where you could easily transition into fall. I’m wearing a Veronica Beard 2-in-1 cargo jacket that is actually one of my favorite purchases so far this year. I love the versatility. You can zip off the bottom to wear it as a cropped jacket or leave it as a longer-line jacket. I really like how the gold buttons on the jacket and on the jeans work together too. I think it’s a super chic look.

Vibrant Floral Blouse with white jeans

#20) Vibrant Floral Blouse

And finally, how about a beautiful red, printed blouse by Farm Rio? In this look, I’m breaking away from the muted color palate and all of the blue blouses to make more of a statement. Farm Rio does such interesting standout prints and the fit and details are so beautiful. This blouse is paper thin, so it keeps you cool in the heat too. Such a gorgeous option to pair with your favorite white jeans.
