This is the last outfit formula for Summer 2018. From next week onward, Fridays are all about Fall and Winter fashion and style.
It’s cooled down considerably in Seattle making it easy to wear white jeans at this time of year. That said, white jeans are also great in hot Summers if you’re in air-conditioned casual offices or restaurants. Or if it cools down at night.
White jeans are dressier than blue jeans if they aren’t distressed. That makes them more versatile for the office, work, occasions, and casual Fridays. Here are four neutral options to get you started.
1. Blazer & Closed Toes
This is an easy look to achieve, and one that makes you feel instantly pulled together because structured blazers are magical that way. Combine white jeans with a layering top like a tee, and finish off the look with a blazer and dressy closed-toe flats. You can tuck, semi-tuck or leave the top untucked. The model’s shoes effectively bookend her hair which creates outfit cohesion. The blazer and shoes create a high contrast, but feel free to create a low contrast. The low contrast of the tee and jeans create an effective column of colour, which tempers the leg shortening aspects of the outfit.
2. Blouse & Sandals
This is the most casual look of the four. Combine a pretty boho-lite or another type of soft and fluid blouse with white jeans, and finish off the look with flat or heeled sandals. A semi-tuck adds an effective amount of structure to the look, but is not essential. The low contrast between the outfit components creates the same lengthening effect had the top been worn out.
3. Maximal Top & Dressy Boots
Combine a dressy and maximal top with white jeans and dressy boots. I like how the silver boots elevate the outfit by adding polish and shine. Dressy lower heels and flats in the same futuristic silver can achieve a similar vibe.
4. Earthy Accents
And last, a bonus transition into Autumn. Combine white jeans with a black or navy top, and finish off the look with an earthy topper and animal print footwear. Cognac footwear and bag will work as well as animal print. Wear an animal print top instead of shoes, or wear an animal print top AND animal print shoes.
White jeans are one of my favourite wardrobe items. I tend to wear them in Summer with an assortment of blues and sour brights instead of black, white and grey. Now that I have cognac, chocolate and toffee footwear with matching belts, I will wear white jeans with earthy accents for Fall and Winter.
