Deciding what to wear in the summer can be tricky - especially when the weather is unpredictable - but a pair of white jeans can be the ultimate wardrobe saviour. 

Building a capsule wardrobe is all about finding effortless everyday pieces, and it doesn't get more versatile than a pair of white jeans. 

I love everything about mine (Ok, I hate how often they need to be washed) but they're perfect for teaming with everything from oversized denim shirts and statement tees, you'll be glad you invested this season – trust us.

Are white jeans in style for women? 

Definitely! According to Dayna, Etsy has seen an 31% increase in shoppers looking for white jeans over the past few months, telling us: "White jeans have become a staple piece for any wardrobe because they are so versatile and go with such an array of colours."

Paige Adams-Geller assured us they're in vogue, saying: "White denim is essential for every wardrobe in 2024, particularly during summer! Wide-legged styles, whether cropped or full-length, are currently one of the most popular trends in white denim. The modern denim ensemble involves wearing ecru or crisp white from head to toe, paired with gold jewellry or shoes for an elegant touch."

If you're looking for some retro inspiration to pin on your 'white jeans Pinterest board', Princess Kate once wore white jeans back in 2006, and the style is in favour within the current trend landscape.

What to wear with white jeans 

If the weather isn't playing ball, you can style your white jeans with a lightweight trench coat. Nautical is a fail-safe when it comes to white denim; opt for Breton stripes in navy and go for the country club vibes. 

Sam, the founder of ilovejeans.com, recommends letting the weather determine how you style your white denim, telling us: "The key is to adjust the clothing styled with white jeans based on the weather. For cooler temperatures, opt for heavier boots or shoes. Combining white jeans with brown or navy accessories can transition them from a summer staple to a new season's look. 

It's a true palette cleanser so can be teamed with the most vibrant coloured prints to white on white, quiet luxury and still look on trend for 2024."

The denim expert advises pairing your white jeans with a cashmere jumper for the ultimate quiet luxury aesthetic, and for a more glamorous evening look opt for a sheer blouse with gold accessories for an elevated feel, and recommends trying the look with white kick flare jeans.

  • Best if you're looking for: White cropped jeans

I am obsessed with my Levi's 501 Crop jeans and have them in every colour - including white. I will say they're closer to ecru than they are white but they're seriously good jeans. With a classic straight leg. And a modern cropped length, they look great with a blazer or cropped jacket.

Topshop Low-Rise Cinch Back Jeans

  • Best for those looking for: Low-waist white jeans

I used to be obsessed with my Topshop white Editor jeans (still have them and love them!) but nowadays the trend is definitely a lot more relaxed, which is why I might give the low-slung white jeans a try from Topshop. Sizes are running out fast so don't delay.

  • Best if you're looking for: Fitted wide-leg jeans

Abercrombie jeans are a real hit with the fash pack on Instagram and I can definitely agree - they're so good. And they often have good savings on them. I like the look of these wide leg white jeans because they've got some shape to them, too.

  • Best if you're looking for: Flared bootcut white jeans

Trying to find white bootcut jeans is a little tricky at the moment but these Berska flared jeans look super on the model and they're an exclusive online. Be sure to team a bootcut shape with killer heels - and I find a stiletto usually works best, unless you're going for a 70s vibe and then opt for a platform. 

Why white jeans are a fantastic choice for summer 

Sam told us: "Wearing white jeans is a mood lifter, refreshes your look but also gives you a confidence boost. It's a great alternative to blue or black denim, and easy to style with the rest of your wardrobe."

What you should look out for when it comes to white jeans 

"Always check the percentage of stretch in a white jeans," Sam tells us. "Less is more in this case. One hundred percent cotton is best, or 1- 2 percent [stretch] is the maximum - any more will start to show imperfections though the whiteness of the denim. The style is also important, a high rise flare or a wide leg jean can really elevate an outfit."

Sam's hacks for jeans shopping in general? 

  • Know your measurements: "Shop for jeans with intent by knowing your measurements before you start. Knowing your front rise measurement (crotch seam to the top of the waistband) will reduce the amount of jeans you'll take into the changing room. Take a tape measure with you or cut a piece of string to the length of the rise that works for you, place it from the crotch up to the top of the waistband. Only try on the styles that measure up to your piece of string."
  • Use your favourite pair as a guide: "If you have a pair of jeans that you love and you wish you could replicate the fit, all you have to do is lay it flat to measure the front rise, waistband across, and inside leg measurement. Use these measurements as a template for your perfect fit."
  • Get extra help: "Book a denim stylist like myself to source your perfect fit jeans and new styles of jeans".
