19 Best White Jeans With Excellent Reviews

Even before you get to the question of red wine and barbecue sauce, white jeans can be a treacherous proposition. If the denim is too thin, it's bound to be see-through. If it's too thick, it's going to be relegated to the back of your drawer once the warm weather hits, which is likely when you'll want to be wearing it.

Given how many pairs of white jeans we start seeing on Instagram come Memorial Day every year, there must be a Goldilocks-style solution to finding a pair that's just right. While you could go out and try on a few dozen pairs under unforgiving dressing-room fluorescents, we're partial to the alternative—going off the wisdom and experience of shoppers who have already taken them for a test-drive.

In the interest of tracking down the best crisp white jeans to pair with your chunky knits and striped shirts, we trawled the reviews of retailers such as Everlane, Nordstrom, and Shopbop to find the best white jeans. Read on to shop them all.
