10 ways to wear white jeans

 When I do a Cheryl's Greatest Hits post, I generally go for 7 ways to wear something, but I love my white jeans so much—and feature them so often here—that I've decided to go for 10 solid outfit ideas (I even had to edit some out). The key piece here is obviously a good pair of white jeans, and my all-around favorite is the power slim straight from Old Navy, which I'm wearing in most of these photos. It's a fit that sadly does not come in white at the moment, but as an alternative, I'd highly recommend the best-selling OG Straight—it's basically the same fit minus the hidden shaping pockets. I love that the denim is thick enough to not be see-through but stretchy enough to be comfy, and I think the straight-leg cut is super flattering. Plus, the price is totally reasonable. Here are all the ways I've styled mine. 



With white and camel

One of my favorite IG accounts to follow is Fashion Jackson, who manages to make neutrals look fun and accessible. I felt like this outfit was something she'd wear for spring. The top and the jeans don't quite match, but who cares? The camel sweater blazer pulls it all together, and the leopard-print sandals add a little bit of fun.

With a trench coat

This look is from the way-back machine—almost exactly three years ago—but I love how springy it feels. It's always exciting when I get to wear a trench coat for the first time in spring (I just broke mine out a few weekends ago), and I love a good lightweight sweater too, like the one I'm wearing here.

With leopard print

I truly think that leopard print looks good with everything, but I particularly love how crisp and clean it feels with white jeans. Believe it or not, this is considered a summer outfit in San Francisco (when the fog tends to make things unexpectedly cool), but this lightweight yet lined Ganni coat is perfect for spring and fall too.

With white boots

TBH, I had to take a little break from this sweatshirt, because it was probably one of my most-warn pieces during quarantine. These photos remind me of how much I love it, though, so I think it might be time to add it back into regular rotation. More importantly, it feels like time to put on heels again, and I love how these pointy-toe white boots help further elongate my legs—never a bad thing when you're wearing white.

With a black turtleneck and blazer

This look was inspired by what I call the Elin Kling outfit—while the super stylish Swede has had many winners over the years, this was one of my all-time favorites of hers. It's also a great transitional look, and if you click through to the original post, there's a bonus white-jeans look (plus one more favorite from last year).

With blush and camel 

This outfit inspired my recent revelation that I was dressing like a sad, boring, middle-aged person and that I need more color in my life. The soft, pale colors and lightness of the palette here made me super happy (and I'm wearing the same sweater literally as I write this). Don't be afraid to wear white jeans in winter—they look especially fabulous with a belted camel coat.

With a maxi cardigan

I'm going into my second straight year of maxi cardigan love—this wool-cashmere Halogen cardi was one of my best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale buys ever. I love how warm and cozy this look actually is, but the lighter color of the cardigan keeps it from feeling too heavy. This is also making me miss Carmel!







With a teddy coat

As happy as I am for the weather to be warming up (finally!), I'm a little sad to be putting away this teddy coat, which was an incredibly sound investment (at $50!). I am pulling what's considered to be a no-no here by wearing haircalf and faux fur together in one outfit, but rules were meant to be broken, weren't they?

Under a dress

I loved this outfit, so much that I've recreated it at least one other time here on the blog. I sadly have not worn this dress since before the pandemic (and the shoes have since been donated to charity), but I love how easy yet chic this look feels. 



OUTFIT DETAILS: J.crew jacket (current season here) | COS dress (similar here) | Michael Kors jeans (very similar here) | Cult Gaia Ark bag | Sam Edelman Laney mules



With zebra print

I haven't worn this blouse in ages, because it qualifies as one of my fancier work tops, but it's hanging in my closet, ready to be back on the job. This is also a great transitional look—the coat, which I haven't worn much recently, since it's also a little dressier in feel, is the perfect weight for late spring and early fall. And I love how my black Gucci loafers really pop against the bright white jeans.

Looking great in those white jeans. I especially love it with the leopard print sneakers and the blue mules are amazing.

You look so stylish in these white jeans and you really wear them well! I wish that I could pull off white jeans - I sometimes wear white shorts or a white tee but honestly white things never stay white long with my clumsy self, the dog and two boys running around, haha!

Hope that you are having a nice week so far.
