Pairing your white jeans with anything in blue, be it denim, navy blue or anywhere in the Aqua spectrum, balances your look. And if nothing, try it with the chambray shirt which I’m sure is something we all must have in our closet. Pair it up with dull silver accessories or white colored jewelry depending on your preference and occasion.

2. White Ripped Jeans With Off-Shoulder Top

Ripped jeans and off-shoulders is everything the fashion world is raving about. So, why not bring them both together? Wear pink color pumps or wedges, and long dazzler earrings to get heads turning.

3. White Jeans With Tied-Up Shirt

White jeans alone brings in the style quotient to your outfit, so everything you play around is just above and beyond which makes it even better. So, when you’re in a mood for something stylish yet comfy, team it up with a loose checkered shirt and tie it up (or not). Complete the look with a messy bun, white sneakers, sling bag and aviators maybe.

4. White Jeans With Black Top And Accessories

Or throw in a flowing spaghetti or ruffled black top that adds definition and is not just a contrast to your white jeans. With simple and elegant tops and blouses like these, the theme is “easy to pull off,” yet offering a chic final look. Wear flats, make some beach waves and a nude lipstick to balance it all out.

Emily, a fashion vlogger, shares her insights while styling white jeans. She expresses, “This is very simple but wearable and chic. I love pairing white jeans with a black top and black shoes. There is something very elegant about this color combination. I am wearing gold-layered necklaces as well as this black handbag (i).”

5. White Jeans With A Nude Choker Style Top

Choker style tops and sweaters are omnipresent. And with a choker top, you would not even need any accessories. A classy hair updo, wedges, and a half-tuck is all you need.

Matching sets, much-wow! If you are a white jeans veteran and have done basic styling, explore the matching set style, you’d love it! It’s uptown, sophisticated and classy!

7. White Jeans And Brown Boots For Winters Or Spring

I know it might be a bad idea for people who live in snow-prone areas, but for the others, brown boots and white jeans are cool. A light colored tank, a shrug and brown boots with jeans are perfect for spring or winters.

8. Layer It Up

Running out of time for a sudden party plan? Just throw in a pair of white jeans, plain V-neck or tank top and layer it up with a cape or kimono. A beautiful long neck piece, tote bag, and red lipstick will make up for everything.

9. White Jeans And A Bold Red Top

Don’t shy away from sporting that bright red top and red accessories. Add zing to your brunch or lunch meetings with this outfit.

10. With Neon Colored Tops

Yay! Neon colors are vibrant, zesty, and fun. Pick up that lemon yellow top and wear it above white ripped jeans. Sport the no-accessories look, tie your hair in a Dutch braid and finish it with orange lipstick.

11. Match It With Pink Undertones

You might think two subtle colors might fall flat. But if it’s done well, it can stand out and makes for a poised yet elegant attire. Plain pastel or pink V-neck T-shirt with similar colored ballerinas or pumps, with fine gold jewelry, gold colored handbag, and a no-makeup look will slay it!

12. With Floral Tops For Spring

Prep it up in spring with a bright floral top. Keep the accessories simple for this one which can otherwise be loud and distasteful. A tiny body bag and nude wedges are good to go.

13. With A Plain T-shirt And Sequin Jacket

Who said you couldn’t party in white jeans? Effortless, quick and fancy! That’s what this statement is! Get creative with shoes, and you barely need any accessories.

14. Monochrome Look

Monochrome, a term that is buzzing in the fashion world. Instead of plain white tops or T-shirts try this ruffled top that adds definition to your monochrome look. You can break the silhouette with dark color accessories or stick to white.

Hailey Beiber opted for a monochromatic look when she paired white jeans with a white turtleneck during the Paris Fashion Week in February 2020. She layered it with white boots, a purse, and a long white jacket.

15. With A Crop Top And Blazer

Gray top is not the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of pairing with white jeans, but take another good look, and you will agree that it’s actually ultra chic and modish. Shift gears with accessories and try an entirely different color like this one, you’ll thank us later.

17. White Jeans And Crop Top For Summers

Keep summer dressing stylish, elegant and comfortable with a pastel colored crop top over your ripped white jeans. Go with matching wedges or gladiator sandals to keep the style quotient on point.

18. With A Contrast Top

The best part about wearing white jeans is, your options are nearly unlimited. With the bottom in white, you can go with any contrast color top and match all your accessories with it.

19. With A Striped Top

A black and white stripes top is the simplest way to style your white jeans. And with tops like these, both white and black accessories are equally good.

20. With A Formal Blazer

This is one of my favorite looks because nothing makes you look more dapper like this blazer, white pumps and the body bag combination. *I heart it*

21. With A Matching Jacket

This ultimate spring day to night outfit is what you need to embrace the colors of nature. For a formal day look for a meeting, don a white jacket with some simple accessories, and lose the jacket to transform into a semi-casual look for a party. You can also wear the white jeans with a matching denim jacket for a more casual look.

22. With A Plain White Tee

Nothing is more basic than monochrome white jeans with a white tee. This combination not only completes the look but the versatility of each means you can mix and match them with almost all the outfits in your wardrobe. Layer with an oversized overcoat or jacket and accessorize with a necklace and earrings and you’ll bel ready for a comfortable outing.

  • What not to wear under white pants?

More than anything, be vigilant with your underwear when you are wearing white pants. That’s a gaffe most of us make while putting together the outfit considering they are white jeans. Also, going commando is not an option! I had to put it out there. Another thing worth mentioning is to not add too many colors in the name of color blocking, it can get gaudy and flash. If you decide to try bold colors, by all means, do it but do not mix them up. Keep it tasteful and proportionate.

  • Which color top can go with white jeans?

There is no one best or wrong choice of color with white jeans as white belongs in the winter range of cool colors; any cool shade will look better than warm. Bolder colors will work better than softer ones as well. If you are minimalistic and elegant with your outfits, then pastel undertones, gray and stripes with similar accessories are good. If bright and vibrant defines you, then neons, florals, stripes, and contrast colored tops work perfectly for you. If you are an in-betweener then a mix of everything in proportions, stripes, and chambray shirts, etc. will suit you best.

  • What shoes to wear with white jeans?

There are two ways of dealing with shoes with white jeans. Either go with light and nude colored pumps, wedges or flats depending on your comfort irrespective of your top color. Or, go with matching shoes to look on point. However, wearing shoes that are slightly elevated makes a lot of difference. If you are short and conscious, wedges or pumps do the trick for you. Pom-pom flats and gladiators are also interesting choices.
