Styling white jeans does not have to be expensive, but do it well and it can look luxurious for less.
I am here to tell you that styling white jeans to create that classic, chic and minimal look can most certainly be done on the highstreet! A lot of people are not a fan of white jeans, “they get so dirty” people always say to me, and yeah they do, but doesn’t everything get dirty and doesn’t everyone have a washing machine!?
I personally LOVE white jeans, I think they can really elevate your outfit and give you that summer vibe that your outfit has been missing now the temperatures have soared in the UK.
White Jeans themselves do not have to be expensive. This pair I got a couple of years ago from New Look were £25.99, so if you think about the cost per wear, it works out to be just over a pound for each month. You can’t go far wrong with that. New look is my favourite place to buy white jeans and I could have bought a new pair for this year but I just didn’t see the need, the fit is still as tight as ever, and they are still crisp white giving them their expensive luxe feel. The material isn’t the softest but I think you have to accept that its not going to be when they are under £30, but if that doesn’t bother you like it doesn’t me, then these are a great pair to opt for.
You may think you should pair the jeans with a slightly better quality top, in other words ‘more expensive’, if thats what you love then go ahead, but for those who don’t or can’t, then there really is no need to. The highstreet are killing it this summer as there is SO much choice its ridiculous.
White jeans look great with bright or pastel colours but you know me, I’m a fan of softer colours and as you may be able to tell, I cannot get enough of pale blue this summer. I’ve styled the first look with a fluted sleeve bardot style top from Zara. At £25.99 this top manages to tick off so many trends and with the elasticity around the centre of the top, it manages to stay flattering and feminine. The lightweight linen material is airy and fresh so its great for both day and night during the Summer. Sometimes with a bardot top, you are a little restricted when it comes to moving your arms but not in this number.
The next look Ive opted for another pastel blue colour; with the bell sleeves and the stripes, this top is very French Riviera. I was worried it would look slightly masculine however, the lace details on the sleeves, the hem and around the neckline not only keeps the style pretty and delicate but it also makes it look more expensive. The soft colours ensure the look stays feminine and appropriate for summer.
Take white jeans from day to night with a white top to create an ensemble that is simple yet chic! This long sleeve cold shoulder top from River Island is perfect as not only is it £30 but the poplin fabric and layered design creates a shirt like material, making the top perfect for a smarter occasion or perhaps even chic workwear. The cold shoulder style ticks of summers hottest trend, and the frill trim detail around the shoulders immediately grabs your attention. I really like the fact it boasts a V-neck as it allows you to show off a little more skin for summer and why not! This white on white ensemble is a super easy way to keep your #ootd fresh and minimal without even trying.
I paired all outfits with my River Island suede peep toe mules which I am obsessed with at the moment, this keeps all outfits quite casual for days when walking about, not to mention comfortable, but add a pair of block heel sandals or wedges and these outfits are perfect for a more glamorous feel.
