Blue jeans are a no-brainer, but white? Most guys don’t even try. Find out how to pull off this challenging item.
Act Casual: They may be white, but they’re still jeans. They go better with everyday casual wear than you might think!
Try them with darker desert boots and a well-fitted denim western shirt, and you’ll have something that should last you all summer- don’t forget dark sunglasses! If the weather turns cooler or you’re feeling a little more rock than country, white jeans play surprisingly well with a black leather jacket- preferably a double rider to give the look a bit of bite. Pair with some canvas basketball shoes and that old band T-shirt you hung onto.
Streetwear shouldn’t feel left out either- a good pair of white jeans are perfect for showing off darker sneakers, especially high-tops. You can actually go all-white on an outfit like this- a good sweatshirt with a little branding, a military-style overshirt, or even some fur can work in colder weather. White also goes well with jewelry, so don’t be afraid to get fancy.
Bomber jackets deserve special mention besides their popularity- they can work with white jeans for virtually anyone’s style, in a wide range of weather. Seriously, with that kind of versatility you’d be crazy not to get in on the trend.
Go Professional: White is one of the few jeans colors that can really work with more business/formal-oriented dress codes.
Bear in mind that while “wearing white after labor day” isn’t nearly the faux-pas it used to be, with white jeans you’d still be pushing it. They are however, perfect for spring and summer. A good simple navy blazer is something every guy should have in his closet, and it goes perfectly with white bottoms. Sticking with blue, a chambray shortsleeve will also serve you well in hotter, slightly more casual climates.
White always works well with sportswear-derived clothing, so it’s not a bad idea to also try a black polo. If you’re not the monochrome type though, you’re in luck- white jeans can go very well with a patterned shirt; even something as simple as stripes will add a lot of interest.
Another area white jeans’ canvas-like quality comes in handy is shoes- Black, brown, navy, and more all work well, allowing you to flex your collection as you like!
