If you’re anything like us, there’s a good chance that you’ve been told, at least once in your life, one of the oldest rules of fashion: White should not be worn any day following Labor Day, which marks the unofficial beginning of the fall, until Memorial Day, thus skipping over winter altogether. While we threw fashion “rules” out the window long ago, that doesn’t mean that wearing white jeans in the winter suddenly became a natural occurrence—it takes some serious thought and inspiration.
As we move further away from that old convention, it’s time we equip ourselves with a handful of chic outfits featuring the denim style. After all, nothing feels quite as refreshing as winter whites. Lately, we’ve been seeing the light-hued denim trend pop up everywhere—on and off our Instagram feeds. Thus, we took it upon ourselves to gather some of the best fashion girl–approved white-jean outfits out there to show you exactly how you can style this look. Whether it’s in the form of bright whites or a tinge of ivory, this denim trend will be your next winter staple, we promise. Check them all out below.

When in doubt, pair your white jeans with a neutral sweater.
Or, style it with a blue denim shirt.
