Your Effortlessly Cool White Jeans Guide

White jeans go with everything you own – but can be notoriously tricky to pull off. Here’s how to rock the pristine look.



White jeans are to summer what Savile Row is to men’s suits – essential. However, as is the case with most fashion staples, the key to successfully pulling off the look comes down to a few simple guidelines:

1. Get the right fit

It is important to dress for your body type. If you’re someone who doesn’t skip leg day, choose a slim-fit straight-cut jean that’ll highlight your proportions without compromising on comfort. If you’re on the leaner side, opt for semi-skinny fit jeans with a cuffed ankle, which adds length to your frame while ensuring the right amount of volume.

2. Go easy on the details

Extra zippers and padded pockets are fine for rock stars and ravers, but for a more pristine appearance, look to simplistic and functional details.

3. Don’t wear it with black

You’re not a mime. Don’t match your white jeans with a black shirt. Instead, pair them with neutral, solid colour tones like navy or light blue to exude effortlessness.

4. Wear the right shoes

White jeans draw attention, and people will be looking at your feet, too. Scruffy shoes are out – think loafers, Oxfords without socks, or box-fresh sneakers.

5. Keep them spotless

And by spotless, we mean clean like a surgeon’s table. These are not your wear-six-time-before-washing jeans.
