must-have white jeans


Not that I was judging or anything, but I was amused this morning when a friend of mine (and a devout reader of this site) texted me from the Bahamas, where's she vacationing with her family, asking me whether she should buy the denim espadrilles featured earlier or the python print ankle strap sandals from yesterday's post. (Clearly, I'm not the only one who'd let paradise get in the way of shopping!) Naturally, I responded, "Both," as they're quite different. Her next pressing question: which white jeans are the most flattering? Funny she should ask, because I've been thinking about and researching this myself lately, as white jeans are, of course, a summer essential. You may recall that I've written about my favorite white jeans in the past, but with each year comes new styles and better options. Hence this year's top seven: the amazingly flattering AG Stilt Cigarette (they run small, so go up a size), the classic straight-leg Rag & Bone (similar to above), the skinnifying Paige ankle peg Skyline, the mid-rise slim-leg Victoria Beckham (they're fitted but not tight--just right!), J Brand's high-rise skinny (for a long, lean line), Blank Denim Flare jeans (great price, perfect flare), and J Brand's slim-fitting boyfriends. (P.S. If you are curious to know what my new favorite blue jeans are, they are these straight, high-rise Paper, Denim & Cloth.)

Great post - I live in white jeans all summer long for both work and weekends. I have the AG Stilt Cigarette jeans you mention and LOVE them. They work with both flats and heels.
Thanks for the blog!

I've been wanting white jeans very badly lately… What good timing to read this post! Skinny white denim looks great with just about anything!

Marlien, Thank you for saving me loads of time searching for white jeans. I just bought the J Brand pair you recommended. That sound you hear is my sigh of relief.

Love the white jeans! I also love the belt the model is wearing with the jeans. Could you do a future post on belts that look great with jeans? Thanks!

I am loving the Mick white jean by Emerson Frye. The fit and quality are both amazing, and there is an ankle zipper that adds to the chic look of the semi-distressed style of this pant. Another huge plus for me is that they are made in the USA!!!! I also own them in black and both will be my go-to through all four seasons here in New England.

The Rag and Bones are heaven... I have them in black and assuming the white fit the same?

I second the AG stilt....thick and not too tight, both of which are important in white jeans!
