8 ways to wear white jeans this spring
Based on the popularity of last week’s white denim-anchored outfit, it would seem that there’s quite an interest from guys wanting to incorporate a pair into their spring wardrobes.
Interestingly, this comes despite the fact that white denim has not featured significantly in the pages – both in print and online – of the major men’s style publications this season.
I remember a time when it seemed like everywhere you looked, you’d see any number of articles on white denim. Perhaps it was “trending” two or three years ago, but as we know, trends do tend to come and go.
The fact that we’re still interested in white denim, however, tells me that it’s not a trend. And that’s a good thing. Because who doesn’t like a nice pair of white jeans?
Now how about those outfit ideas?
From the office to a casual weekend, here are eight ways to wear your white jeans this spring.
1. Crisp Office Attire
We’re fond of calling black jeans your “in-between” dress pant, but in the spring white jeans can serve a similar – albeit, seasonal – role. The best part about them is that they are crisp and clean. And styled with an equally sharp button up and silk knit tie, you’ve got a sharp look for just about any day at the office.
2. Casual Coffee Date
Another beautiful thing about white denim, is that it is more or less a blank canvas. This means that you wear just about any color you want with them. They will also take on the character and tone of the items you pair with them. Try layering a lightweight knit sweater for a comfortable and casual look.
3. Friday Night Happy Hour
A fresh approach to happy hour attire. Break out the linen blazer and the denim shirt. Relax, unwind and stand out in all the right ways.
4. Creative Workwear
Another simple office look with spring touches like a blue linen blazer, madras tie and horsebit loafers. I guarantee that if you wear this tie tomorrow, at least five dudes will ask you where you got it.
The Allen Edmonds Grand Cayman has been in my wardrobe for over three years now. Same pair still going strong.
I’ve always felt that there’s something Italian about white denim. Maybe it’s because you tend to see ultra-stylish guys like Alessandro Squarzi wearing them all the time. Play up their Italian-ness with a few key items, like a double-breasted blazer and suede double monks.
6. The Monochromatic Thing
An (almost) all-white outfit is a bold move. And also one that requires vigilance when moving around, sitting on, or learning on anything. If you’re brave enough to rock it, wear it with confidence and be sure to carry one of these with you at all times. Actually, that goes for any time you walk out of the house wearing white jeans.
7. Date Night
I like how white denim stands out without really standing out, if you know what I mean. It’s sort of an advanced-denim style move that easily sets you apart. And there’s no better time than to stand out and above than when you’re on a date.
8. Weekend Casual
