How to Be Cool Wearing White Jeans in the Fall/Winter

white jeans winter

Age doesn’t matter; we all like to wear what we want.  It’s nice to break the old fashion rules.  We can wear white after Labor Day.  We can wear white jeans in the Fall and Winter.  We can also wear white cords or white trousers or white cargo pants or white chinos.  And any of these “white” pants can be off-white, ivory or cream.  So when I say white jeans, I’m also thinking of the alternatives.

How do you wear white jeans in Fall and Winter?  Winterize them with Fall and Winter colors, or with the same colors in different textures and fabrics.  Wear white jeans with warm neutrals like caramel and gray tops, and with autumnal hues like purple, camel and browns.  Try ivory or cream jeans or pants with neutrals like gray, white, black or earth tones.  Plaid also works with white or off-white pants, no matter what colors the pattern contains.

Wear white jeans with black for a timeless look all Winter long.  Black and white is such a popular and classy look any time for any occasion.  Varying shades of white will go well with your white jeans or pants.  Then add gold accessories with your all-white or black & white outfits.  Even if you wear silver, mix it with gold which goes best with black and white neutrals.

 If the color of your footwear contrasts too much with the white jeans, it shortens the look of your leg.  A long, uninterrupted line of color or tone is preferred because it makes your legs look longer.  The white boot is trending now, so that would really lengthen the leg line with white jeans or pants!  Nude footwear is a great choice, and animal-print shoes and accessories accent the white beautifully.

If you are longing for Spring in February but don’t want to look too springy, you can wear the sorbet colors you’re craving in the above fabrics and textures with white jeans.  Wear sorbet-colored cashmere instead of your chocolate browns and deep reds.  Wear white jeans with pale, silvery grey in late winter, rather than with charcoal grey and brown.

Tina Adams, of Tina Adams Consulting, says:  “In fact, whether you’re wearing white jeans with pastels, silvery greys or a crisp black and white Chanel palette, white jeans and winter go together like Christian and Dior.”
