Wanted: White Jeans




I have been craving anything but blue or black jeans lately and white ones (in all shades from bright to ecru) are so perfect for summer. They’re so good all monochromatic with white tees, or with denim shirts, and plain old gray sweatshirts as worn by the sublime French Vogue editor Capucine Safyurtlu. The question is: skinny? baggy? cropped? flared? It’s a tough decision. Maybe one of each?


Rebecca Minkoff’s kind of have it all: a good not-too-high and not-too-low waist, plus a cool slight cropped flare and a raw hem.
For a plain optic white pair, I like these high-waist skinnies.
 Madewell’s relaxed retro shape looks good with boyish tees or structured blazers, sneakers or heels.
You can’t really go wrong with a classic cut that hits right at the ankle.
And of course Levi’s are forever.
They’re not inexpensive, but R13 Boy Skinnies really are worth it. The fit is not too tight and not too loose and they slouch just so.

    I love white jeans! These are all great choices. Just found a pair of AG jeans that are somewhere between white-ecru-and-the-palest-pink.

    Damn! Those French Voguettes manage to look chic no matter how simple the outfit.

    I just got a perfect pair for my body shape because I feel like you shop differently for white jeans than dark jeans…sometimes skin tight white doesnt translate the way skin tight black does haha. Loft skinny curvy white jeans fit great, have some stretch and are super affordable especially when they are on sale.

    Rag & Bone DRE boyfriend white jeans are worth every penny & then some.
