Spring is in full swing, which means your trusty white jeans are back in business. There are a million-and-one ways to rock this classic closet workhorse, but to help you keep your look feeling fresh for the new season (without spending hours outfit planning), we took it upon ourselves to throw together a bit of #OOTD inspo. While celebs have been serving up their denim alongside a bit of all-white-everything, Three Ways to Wear is taking a slightly more colorful approach, pairing white fashion essentials with bright statement bags, colorful kicks, and festival-approved accessories that would slay at center stage or in the streets.
The Buy: A standout pair of white denim jeans that will become your seasonal standby for warm-weather style.
How to Wear White Denim for Work
Work those white jeans! Shay Mitchell proved low-key casual can be totally classy with full, white jeans, don’t-mess heels, and a flowy topper to match.
Rocking jeans at the office might land you in hot water if your nine-to-five has a strict dress code in place, but on casual Friday or in more laid-back environments, denim rules supreme. Keep things feeling corner-office polished by opting for a wide-leg silhouette that gives the appearance of tailored trousers. A printed belted jacket brings just the right amount of down-to-business edge, while details such as block-heel mules, a bright buckled bag, and sleek statement necklace keep things feeling fresh and modern.
