Some wear white jeans in Winter, and others don’t. Maybe you pull them out at the beginning of Spring, which is great too. Either way, if you need to wear white jeans with warmer layers, and you are a neutral dresser, here are some outfit ideas. Choose any silhouette of white jeans. These are trendier cropped relaxed straights and barrel jeans, but you might prefer straight legs, boyfriends, bootcuts, skinnies, or cropped flares.

1. Bookended Black

The most striking effect here is how effectively the black boots bookend the black hair of the model. To my eye, this type of colour repetition is delicious and really pulls the look together. The rest of the outfit is a glorious column of colour which is created by combining white jeans with a white pullover and tan coat. A very light grey coat could work well too. Add a black or tan bag.

2. Earthy Support Act

Combine white jeans with a sweater and boots from the spice family. Think shades of cinnamon, paprika, curry, saffron, burnt orange, and cardamom. Leopard or cheetah print boots could look nice. I can see an olive and brown sweater and boots work well too. Top things off with an earthy coat or jacket and bag to match.

3. Layered

Combine white jeans with a patterned neutral blouse. Layer a fluid pullover or cardigan over the top. Note that popping a sweater over a SLIPPERY silk or poly-blend blouse works a lot better than its more rigid cotton counterpart, because there is less friction. Throw a neutral topper over the top and a bag to match. Here, white sneakers finish the look, but tan, brown or black boots will work well too.

4. Black Support Act

Combine white jeans with a black top and topper. Finish off the look with a pair of black boots, and Bob’s your uncle. Here I particularly like the drama of the lengths of the items. The cropped barrel jeans, knee-length coat, and tall-shaft booties are an unexpected combination. Fresh and fun. For a change it’s nice to see the top worn out over the jeans and not semi-tucked. Feel free to switch the black to navy or grey. Or wear a much shorter black topper if that’s your preference. Add a bag, jewellery, headgear and watch as desired.

I’m going to wear my white jeans soon, but I won’t be combining them with these types of neutrals. Instead, I’ll be sporting them with navy, light blue and sour brights, or blush pink, shocking pink and red.
