How You Need to Be Wearing White Denim This Season

How to wear White Denim

White denim has always been a thing, but if you have ever been wary of the white denim trend, it’s time to face your fears! LUCKILY, there are so many styles or ways you can wear white denim, so you don’t have to just do the classic white skinny jean (but classics, are classics for a reason). You can mix up the white denim trend and try a denim skirt, or a pair of shortalls, or a trendy skort.

White denim can either be a statement piece for your outfit or it can be a way to showcase your favorite piece of clothing. This must have item makes any outfit look clean and fresh, which is perfect for summer, but you better believe that these can also roll you into fall (but that’s a blog post for another day.) Here are 4 ways you need to try wearing your white denim this season.

Monochromatic White Denim trend

Monochromatic: White denim with a white top, is definitely the most daring of all the white denim trends. But to make it easier, just remember that you probably also loved the all black wardrobe trend and this is basically the same thing but the more summer friendly version of the two (aka less likely to absorb all those warm little sun rays). This look is so clean and simple, without a doubt it will make you look sophisticated and put together.

White Denim with a Pop of Color

A Pop of Color: Basically, the same concept as the monochromatic look, but throw some of your favorite pieces on there to make them really stand out. Your outfit becomes the canvas and you get to showcase whatever trendy item you wanna show off! I recommend, a jean jacket or any other of your favorite dressier outerwear pieces. If it’s too hot for a jacket, throw on some statement earrings, a daring shoe choice, or a colorful bag. You can even opt for a more muted pop of color with a simple beige or a light blue.

Statement tops with white jeans

A Statement Top: A lot of jeans can take away from a beautiful statement top, but with a pair of white jeans you are making sure that the shirt that “you just need to have or you would die” is the center of attention!  A pair of white jeans also makes that shirt that otherwise might have been borderline casual, an office ready look! Then you can throw on a neutral shoe to accent the top more, or grab a statement shoe choice to compliment your blouse.

Casual outfit with white jean

Casual: A tee shirt and a pair of jeans, is always a good idea. AGAIN, (sorry I sound like a broken record over here) white denim elevates your jean and tee style! Classic denim shorts, for example, tend to be casual style piece, but white denim shorts look mature and classy with whatever you wear them with! So whether you throw on a basic graphic tee or a solid colored tank, you cannot go wrong with a basic tee and some white denim.

White denim is definitely a great option if you want to raise the denim bar. All it takes is one simple piece of denim to help you create very different styles.

How to Wear Flared Jeans

Now is the time for 1970’s fashion to come back in style! First step, flare jeans. But wait, what do you wear with this type of denim? Keep reading to find out how we like to style our flared denim!

Like any type of denim, it’s essential to make sure they fit your body type. This being said, hem those flared jeans! (Don’t just shy away from them!) Also, try switching it up by wearing a pair of cropped flairs or overalls with flared culottes. These trendy pieces will be sure to turn heads in any season.

Below we have shown these awesome pairs of flares that we just adore! KanCan Jeans and O2 Denim Jeans have so much to offer and they won’t break the bank!

Once you’ve got your perfect pair of flared jeans, what are you going to wear them with? From daytime casual to nightly outings, these jeans can do it all! For a casual vibe, try pairing your flared jeans with a cropped sweater or a short sleeve or long sleeve tee! (We have listed our picks below!) With flare jeans, don’t be afraid to show off that belt! Being able to accessorize is what makes these jeans so great, but the added flare kicks up your look a notch.  If it gets a little chilly, add an anorak jacket or long blazer to your look.

For a dressier appearance, look for styles with statement sleeves and prints. We picked these styles (below) that are perfect for spring and summer outings! The floral print and flowy fit are super trendy and accentuate your waist while the jeans elongate your legs! The bell sleeves pair perfectly with flare jeans and completely show off that boho inspired look you’ve been searching for.

Shoes are another decision you’ll have to make. We prefer wearing heels when it comes to flared jeans, but don’t be afraid to wear flats as long as the denim fits you right! Chunky wedges and ankle booties look fantastic as they peep out from under the flared hemline. If you’re daring enough to wear the flats or sandals, try going for a pair of cropped flares, or just make sure your hemline isn’t dragging on the ground.
