4 Ways to Wear White Jeans + Recent Outfits

I’ve been loving my white jeans from Garage – they’re so timeless. It took me a while to figure out what to wear them with – here’s a collage of the combinations that I like:

Outfits with white jeans
Jeans: Garage, SOLIDS: t-shirt: JoeFresh, necklace: F21, sandals: aeropostale. GINGHAM: shirt: H&M, necklace: F21, flats: Old Navy. STRIPES: sweater: Old Navy, Flats: Old Navy. CHAMBRAY: shirt: Garage, flats: Old Navy, bag: Balenciaga

I didn’t think I’d get much wear out of them – and I’m so happy that they’ve turned out to be so versatile!

Here’s the outfit I wore to Day 1 of the SCCTO conference:

Blazer, jeans and flats outfit
Blazer: H&M, Tank & Necklace: J.Crew, Jeans: Garage, Flats: Old Navy, Bag: Balenciaga

The navy blazer was a recent find – on sale for $35 at H&M. Let me tell you a secret – I sized down – so this blazer will NOT button up (I would always wear it open anyway)! I wanted a slim fitting blazer – but most blazers look boxy and matronly on me…by sizing down, the blazer fits perfectly at the shoulder and falls open in a flattering way – I love it!

Casual outfit
Sweater: Jacob, Necklace: JoeFresh, Jeans: Garage, Boots: Old Navy (2011 version)

On day 2 of the conference I wore a combination I’ve featured before here – if it works – why not stick to it?

Do you like wearing blazers? Do you own white jeans? I’m still trying to figure out if I can wear them in colder weather –  any pairing suggestions for fall are very welcome!

      Thanks Katherine – it took me a long while to find my perfect pair – luckily Garage clothes really suit my body type – so I've stocked up on a lot of their dark and colored denim 🙂

      Thanks! I remember reading on a blog that when you're buying colored denim you should go one size up – so that's what I did. In regular denim I'm a size 3 but all my colored denim is a 5. Hope you find a great pair soon!

    Always happy to see your outfits! White pants are so versatile, you can wear anything with them.I have a pair of white skinnies I thought I liked but the last two times I wore them they stretched out way too much. But my boot leg cut white ones I still love.

      Thanks Lilly – I'm glad I got over my fear of colored denim 🙂 I really dislike it when skinnies stretch out! Luckily these are quite thick – so I don't think they'll stretch out (fingers crossed!)…I'm still on the look out for boot leg white pants 🙂

    You always look so pretty! I've never worn white jeans in my life! I've always wanted to though. I think white is beautiful year-round. Unfortunately, I've never been able to find a pair that fits my body properly. If I ever do, I'll be a very happy girl!

      It was very discouraging before I found the right pair of white jeans – I promise you some I tried out (cough cough Old Navy) made my legs look like drumsticks – not cute at all and nearly put me off the hunt altogether LOL! Hope you find a great pair soon!

    I love the look of white jeans on others but don't think I could personally pull them off 🙁 I love all of the combinations you have here though, especially the red striped combo

      Funny you say that Franziska – I know what you mean, I feel the same way about red jeans – love how they look but can never get them to look right on me!

    Every outfit looks great, Ella! Thanks for the styling tips! :)I have one questions though…..the reason I stay away from white jeans/pants is I hate seeing the whiter shadow of extra seam and pocket fabrics. Is this something you just have to live with when wearing white bottoms or do you have a tip for eliminating this? Thanks!

      Hi Lindsay! I know what you mean about everything being more apparent under white pants- I think if you find a pair made of thicker material, the seams won't be apparent… And it's one of those things where it is more noticeable to us (as wearers) than anybody else lol!

    I don't own white jeans, but you're making me wish I did! I love all the looks you came up with – the bright pink especially pops with the white 🙂
