White jeans are a summertime staple that work for just about every occasion, from a bbq to a boat trip to the office even (just add a crisp blazer and heels). White jeans are truly the epitome of chic IMHO, and while I wear them all year round, they’re still my favorite wardrobe staple to wear in summer. In fact, the only jeans I wear from June through August are white jeans.
I have about ten pairs of white jeans (I know, I know, but I can’t help it. I really do wear white jeans all summer — and year — long!) that I’ll pair with everything from a t-shirt for the Farmer’s Market to a tunic and sandals for a barbecue or beach party, and an off-the-shoulder top for a night out. I’m also a huge fan of white on white. Truly, my favorite summer outfit is a pair of white jeans teamed with a white button-up, t-shirt, or blouse and cute sandals. It works for pretty much anywhere you’re going, and always looks elegant in a nonchalant way. But the summer uniform you’ll probably see me in the most is a striped tee or sweater with white jeans. Simple, classic, versatile.
What I love about investing in a good pair of white jeans is that there are literally a zillion ways to wear them, making them one of those items that just pays off. Seriously, if you buy one thing for summer, make it a pair of white jeans. You can mix and match with any top in your closet and you’re good to go. Feeling inspired?
