We’re in the heart of winter, which can only mean one thing: put away the light clothes and bring out the darker shades, but not this season. If you’re feeling a bit unsure about what to wear with white jeans, or whether you should invest in a pair, you’ve come to the right place.
Putting the perfect look together can be tricky. Most of us have two key concerns:
- Won’t they make my legs look fat?
- I’ll probably look like a mess by the end of the day.
Well, we’re here to lay both of those myths to rest, because white pants can be a flattering and practical addition to your wardrobe this season.
The first place to start is choosing the right fabric for you – denim is the most forgiving. In fact, it’s set to become the hardest working item in your wardrobe. Don’t believe us?
Scroll down for our edit of what to wear with white jeans:
Light and Dark
Fearful of the notoriously unflattering ‘skinny’ white jean style? Opt for an off-white shade instead of super bright white that’s more difficult to wear.
For first-time white jean wearers, this softer shade is much safer – and easier to wear. Pair with a darker printed long sleeve top!
Pair straight leg jeans with a cotton blue shirt and comfy block heels for an easy smart-casual look that will see you through the winter.
Grey tones work well with white. Team a textured sweater with a pair of white skinny ripped jeans for a cool but comfy weekend look. Throw in some metallic sneakers to highlight your look.
Wondering what to wear with gingham? That’s easy! A gingham shirt and on-trend sneakers’ will polish up your look with a pair of skinny jeans.
Show Some Shoulder
Team skinny jeans with a looser, fun, off shoulder top to balance things out. Slip into a pair of wedges which will heighten your legs.

Double denim can be difficult, but keep your silhouettes relaxed and stick to one white and one blue piece, and it can be done… A chambray shirt is a perfect choice.
Crazy About Embroidery
White on white? No, it’s definitely not a no-no. In fact, in our book, it’s very much a yes-yes! Find something with a bit of colour, like these embroidered jeans and sweater.
Can you wear white jeans to work? Yes, of course! A subtle flare will balance out curvier hips and thighs, paired with a smart bowler bag.
