4 Ways to Wear White Jeans + Recent Outfits

I've been loving my white jeans from Garage - they're so timeless. It took me a while to figure out what to wear them with - here's a collage of the combinations that I like:
Outfits with white jeans
Jeans: Garage, SOLIDS: t-shirt: JoeFresh, necklace: F21, sandals: aeropostale. GINGHAM: shirt: H&M, necklace: F21, flats: Old Navy. STRIPES: sweater: Old Navy, Flats: Old Navy. CHAMBRAY: shirt: Garage, flats: Old Navy, bag: Balenciaga
I didn't think I'd get much wear out of them - and I'm so happy that they've turned out to be so versatile!

Here's the outfit I wore to Day 1 of the SCCTO conference:
Blazer, jeans and flats outfit
Blazer: H&M, Tank & Necklace: J.Crew, Jeans: Garage, Flats: Old Navy, Bag: Balenciaga
The navy blazer was a recent find - on sale for $35 at H&M. Let me tell you a secret - I sized down - so this blazer will NOT button up (I would always wear it open anyway)! I wanted a slim fitting blazer - but most blazers look boxy and matronly on me...by sizing down, the blazer fits perfectly at the shoulder and falls open in a flattering way - I love it!

Casual outfit
Sweater: Jacob, Necklace: JoeFresh, Jeans: Garage, Boots: Old Navy (2011 version)
On day 2 of the conference I wore a combination I've featured before here - if it works - why not stick to it?

Do you like wearing blazers? Do you own white jeans? I'm still trying to figure out if I can wear them in colder weather -  any pairing suggestions for fall are very welcome!

    1. Thanks Katherine - it took me a long while to find my perfect pair - luckily Garage clothes really suit my body type - so I've stocked up on a lot of their dark and colored denim :-)

    1. Thanks! I remember reading on a blog that when you're buying colored denim you should go one size up - so that's what I did. In regular denim I'm a size 3 but all my colored denim is a 5. Hope you find a great pair soon!

  6. Always happy to see your outfits! White pants are so versatile, you can wear anything with them.
    I have a pair of white skinnies I thought I liked but the last two times I wore them they stretched out way too much. But my boot leg cut white ones I still love.

    1. Thanks Lilly - I'm glad I got over my fear of colored denim :-) I really dislike it when skinnies stretch out! Luckily these are quite thick - so I don't think they'll stretch out (fingers crossed!)...I'm still on the look out for boot leg white pants :-)

  7. You always look so pretty! I've never worn white jeans in my life! I've always wanted to though. I think white is beautiful year-round. Unfortunately, I've never been able to find a pair that fits my body properly. If I ever do, I'll be a very happy girl!

    1. It was very discouraging before I found the right pair of white jeans - I promise you some I tried out (cough cough Old Navy) made my legs look like drumsticks - not cute at all and nearly put me off the hunt altogether LOL! Hope you find a great pair soon!

  10. Every outfit looks great, Ella! Thanks for the styling tips! :)

    I have one questions though.....the reason I stay away from white jeans/pants is I hate seeing the whiter shadow of extra seam and pocket fabrics. Is this something you just have to live with when wearing white bottoms or do you have a tip for eliminating this? Thanks!

    1. Hi Lindsay! I know what you mean about everything being more apparent under white pants- I think if you find a pair made of thicker material, the seams won't be apparent... And it's one of those things where it is more noticeable to us (as wearers) than anybody else lol!

  11. I don't own white jeans, but you're making me wish I did! I love all the looks you came up with - the bright pink especially pops with the white :)
