White jeans are one of my favorite spring/summer transitional staples in my wardrobe, and this pair of white demi-boot crop jeans are my favorite. They’re high-waisted, have just the right amount of stretch, and are so flattering. I resisted wearing anything other than skinny jeans for a long time, but now I’m a total convert. Demi-boot jeans are fitted throughout the waist and thigh depending on the size and style and then have a cropped, slightly flared lower leg. The key is CROPPED. Full-length Demi-boot jeans make me think of high school, but cropped jeans let a bit of ankle show. But when Demi-boot jeans/pants only come in full-length, a trick I’ve found to work well is to opt for a petite size to achieve the cropped look. In addition, white denim is incredibly versatile; you can get away with dressing your jeans up or down much easier. So whether you’re looking for everyday spring outfit ideas or vacation outfits, here are a few of my favorite ways to style white jeans.
With a Cozy Cardigan
I live in jeans and cozy sweaters during spring. I love how this combo makes getting dressed in the mornings so simple, and it’s incredibly comfortable to wear whether you’re working from home, running errands, or getting lunch out on the weekend. This navy cotton-cashmere cardigan is 40% off with the code spring and comes in cream, grey, and black. Layer it over this striped linen t-shirt that’s under $30, and pair it with white jeans. Accessorize with pearl earrings, slip on a pair of Veja sneakers, and grab a leather woven tote bag if you’re heading out the door.
With a Smocked Top
This navy puff-sleeve smocked top is one of my favorite new arrivals from J.Crew. It comes in several colors and is included in their spring sale. It looks wonderful paired with white jeans and these leather knot sandals. Accessorize with gold hoop earrings, a gold bar bracelet, tortoise sunglasses, and a woven crossbody bag for an elevated spring outfit.
With a Quilted Jacket
I recently bought a block-print quilted jacket and have been wearing it on repeat. It’s the perfect lightweight transitional layer for spring. This lovely Liberty floral quilted jacket is 40% off right now with the code SPRING. I love how it looks styled with white jeans and a button-down shirt or a crewneck tee. Accessorize with round sunglasses and a gold bar necklace. And complete this spring outfit with a straw tote bag and raffia sandals.
