How to Wear White Denim from Day to Night

Though we no longer follow the rule of no white before Memorial Day, summer is still the prime time to bring white denim into heavy rotation. But how to wear white jeans without inducing flashbacks of your favorite outfit circa 1990? Pair them with pieces that are thoroughly modern. For day, wear a skinny version with understated neutrals–think a grey KAIN Label tank, a distressed cross-body bag (like the Alexander Wang Brenda Zip Chain Bag in tan), and nude flat sandals. Pair white trouser jeans with a striped tee and rugged Frye wedges for a look polished enough for work, or if your style is more downtown, take inspiration from our Shop by Outfits feature and play with graphic black and white. For evening, swap the sandals for heels and let white denim find its glamorous side with a metallic or embellished top: a sequined halter by Rachel Roy Signature or a beaded tank by Haute Hippie create looks that ensure you won’t pack your white jeans away come Labor Day.
