5 Breezy Summer Outfit Ideas with White Jeans

If you were to ask me about my favorite thing to wear in summer, it’s hands down, a pair of crisp, white jeans with an easy, breezy summer top. Why?


I think that’s partly because I live in Canada (just outside of Toronto), and although white jeans are technically acceptable at any time of the year, no one really wears them unless it’s hot out. From May until mid-September, white jeans feel special. They’re light, bright, and my way to celebrate summer.  Plus, they look pretty darn chic when you team them up with a beautiful top.

Here’s a look at 5 fabulous white jeans in stores right now and summer outfits to go with them.

1. Fashion Forward

For those of you who like the look of fray hem jeans, these  Frayed white ankle Jeans rock! I like them because they have a beautiful, high waist, which makes wearing them like having an instant tummy tuck! They’re very stretchy, and they hold everything in!

The style is fashion-forward, so if you are the type who likes to be on the cutting edge, then a cropped bootcut is the way to go. I wasn’t too sure about this style until I tried a pair last summer, but you know what, I quite liked them. (See here).

You can wear cropped bootcut jeans with booties, which are a bit edgy and just maybe too hot this time of year? (Maybe in September would be better) or slip on a pair of heels (looks fab), or just some cute summer mules like the ones I’m showing. I’m getting a pair of these for sure!! You can wear flats too, but I think a bit of height looks much chicer with a cropped flare.

Isn’t this orange top gorgeous? Orange + white is so fresh, and I love the soft crisscross draping. This kind of top is always such a flattering look. Add a great straw bag and a pair of a woven slides, a tote, and cute earrings, and you are all set.

2.  If You like Classic with a Surprise Twist

If frayed cropped bootcut jeans are a little too out there for you, then classic white jeans always look fabulous. This pair from NYDJ is specially designed to play up your curves. Plus, it also has an extraordinary style twist.

3. When Tight, Cropped, and Skinny is Your Thing

If you like your white jeans, skinny, tight, and cropped, then you can’t go wrong with a pair of cropped white jeans.  You can wear these when shorts don’t feel appropriate or right, but you don’t want to wear long jeans. They also come in a creamy off-white if bright white is not your thing.

How pretty is this striped front tie top? Another great look with white jeans is soft, pastel stripes, which always remind me of the beach! I love the unique mix of pale yellow and icy pastel pink. The pink tote is gorgeous, and a pair of fresh white sneakers look so cool and modern, not to mention being comfy! This outfit is a warm-weather winner!

4. For Fans of Boyfriend Jeans

For those with a more straight up and down figure, these white boyfriend jeans are great. I like them because they are super soft, and they remind me of cargo-style pants with big adventurer-type pockets and the roll hem cuff.

The beauty of white is that it is like an artist’s canvas. You can put any color on it, and it is going to look fabulous. Bright colors like this artsy orange and blue top are vibrant and exciting. Pick up one of the colors in print like orange and make it your bag. Then add some fab earrings.

Metallic shoes are neutral and look stunning with white jeans. I prefer them to white sandals. They look just a tad richer, and they give a beautiful, long, lean look to your legs.  Did you notice these were square-toe sandals? They’re super trendy right now.

5. When You Like Fringe

Frayed hem jeans take a certain headspace to wear. Fringe jeans have a similar feel but are easier to get into and work for gals who prefer a neater look. I like white fringe jeans because they add a bit of a beachy feel without getting too hippie-looking. This 7 For All Mankind cropped, frayed, straight-leg pair is super cute and easy to wear.

I’ve styled it with this interesting blouse that combines an edgy snake print top with super feminine ruffled sleeves. Mix dangerous and super sweet, and this is the look you get. Fringe earrings and sexy clear sandals (another big trend), along with a soft black bag, give this a fabulous summer feel.


What is your favorite type of white jeans? Do you like frayed jeans? How about fringe? Or are you a classic type? Leave me a comment and let me know.

  1. Excellent post, Deborah! I couldn’t agree with you more – white cropped jeans and white denim shorts are my favorite outfit staples in Spring and Summer. I’m from Iowa, and I like them for the same reason you do. They feel special and elevate anything you wear with them. So versatile, calm, and chic at the same time. I love the outfits you styled! Thanks for the great ideas!

    1. Hi Sue, Nice to hear from you, and I’m glad you dropped by. Willing to listen to you like white too. I kind of like that I reserve this color for summer only. It makes it feel extra special.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
