While you may think white jeans should be solely confined to your summer wardrobe, this light-hued look is actually more versatile than it seems. They can, in fact, act as a breath of fresh air to dull, winter wardrobes.
For an updated silhouette go for straight leg rather than skinny as this shape is more flattering and can work in a number of ways, both dressed up and down. Extra points for frayed hems, which you can easily do yourself with the help of a YouTube tutorial. When it comes to choosing the right pair, make sure to purchase a design made from thick, quality denim, as with all white garments there is the danger of transparency.
In terms of how to style them, white jeans work well as part of a monochrome palette. When paired with black or grey outerwear and black boots this gives a streamlined effect and acts as an easy introductory outfit to this, at times, tricky trend. If you need some more brightness to get you through the dark winter days you can introduce some colour to your outfits. Camel works well, both in outerwear and shoe form, and a printed top and colour pop bag as seen on Leandra Medine below will mean you’ll be ready to welcome spring in an instant.
