How do I wear white jeans?

by Who What Wear

Not even Grandma preaches about wearing white after Labor Day anymore, so don't be apprehensive about rocking your winter white denim in even the chilliest of climates. The key to looking seasonably chic in your white jeans is simply in how you style them, which is why we're breaking down three different outfit ideas for you to try now. Look #1 Back To Black The black and white trend we saw on the spring runways is still humming, and we can't think of a simpler way to achieve this look than by pairing your white jeans with a chic black top. You could always opt for a crisp black tee with a structured blazer, but we also like the idea of a black blouse with feminine details (like ruffles, lace, or a '70s-inspired necktie) or even a simple leather t-shirt. A substantial black heel, strappy bootie, or brogue will tie your checkerboard look together, especially with a skinny belt as a finishing touch. Look #2 Print And Texture Steer clear of breezy fabrics or pastel colors, and instead look for more wintery tops and sweaters. Polka dots, stripes, or houndstooth can make your whole outfit feel seasonally appropriate, but if you're going for an all-white look, try a cream cable-knit cardigan or chunky pullover. Ankle boots or lace-up oxfords in neutral tones, like chestnut and blush, will add warmth to the overall look. Look #3 Shine In Metal Adding metallic touches to your winter white ensemble will make you, well, shine! Just be sure to stick to darker metals, like bronze or pewter, to ensure your look is sophisticated and right for daytime. A blazer or biker jacket will add instant cool to your white jeans, while a metallic sweater feels ironic in that dressy-yet-casual way we love. Finally, mellow out your slightly festive fashion moment with a menswear-inspired shoe, like an oxford or loafer.
