How To Wear White Jeans


Done right, white jeans are a sartorial hit. Done badly, they’re a serious fashion faux pas. The keys to success are a slim leg – nothing too baggy, nothing too tight – and avoiding any fussy details, rips or distressing. As for styling them, here are five ways to make the look work...

Look 1

Sticking to light, tonal colours is essential for a pulled-together look. Light greys and khakis will stop the stark white of your denim from standing out too much.


Channel your inner Parisian in this cool, effortless look. Breton + denim shirt + white jeans = an easy, everyday outfit.


Remember that tip about tonal shades? Varying shades of blue will also do the job. Layer up with boxy separates for a contemporary feel.


Take a classic, grown-up approach to the look by adding smart loafers and a linen shirt – think old-school Hollywood film stars on vacation.

Look 5 

Put a casual, everyday spin on the look – a sweatshirt and trainers make white jeans feel almost incidental.
