How to Style Your White Jeans in the Winter

There was a time in my life when everything I wore seemed to be black or white. You would look in my closet and most of it was filled with white shirts, black shirts, and some gray shirts. You get the idea. It wasn’t until I started adding color into my wardrobe that I felt so much better! We all need a little color, but that’s not to say that my go-to isn’t still black and white. Colors or not, I consider black and white to be the most versatile colors around. When you wear them you look instantly classic! So for your lack of not knowing how to style white jeans in the winter, I’m sharing with you three tips today on how to wear them and look amazing!


1. Wear winter accesories such as ankle boots.

White summer jeans are amazing with sandals and heels. However, if you choose booties you are immediately opening up to the possibilities to face the winter weather. You can still remain completely chic without compromising function or practicality. But of course if you’re like me, you won’t let any little bit of snow stop you from wearing heeled booties, right?


2. Pair it with black pieces.

Anytime I’m at a loss of what to wear with my white jeans I instantly turn to black. I love winter whites as much as the next person and think that incorporating blush tones is absolutely beautiful. But if you aren’t quite bold enough to where all lighter colors, adding black on top helps balance out the light on the bottom. It’s even better if you have if your black shirt has lace to blend in the look and prevent it from having such a harsh contrast.

This may seem a little obvious, but ladies you need heavier texture to balance out what most would call a summer fabric. If you want to stick with white jeans and not look like you’re still stuck in summer, you need to have something in your outfit that is warmer by appearance. In one of my recent looks (Gray and White City Chic) where I styled white jeans, I layered on the warmer accessories. In this look not only am I wearing a sweater, but perhaps to your surprise I’m wearing a long sleeve shirt underneath! This extra layer helps keep me warm, as well as balance out the lace that shows through.

    I always tend to lean towards black and grey during the cold months! Not so much white though, but it looks amazing on you! I should try it more often

    I love that you are rocking some ripped white skinnies in the middle of the snow! I usually see these looks on Southern girls, so it’s nice to see it in the middle of a real winter! Who knows, I might actually try this up in NH where I live 🙂

    You look gorgeous Molly! These tips are super helpful but I am still not brave enough to wear white jeans in the winter. 😁

    • January 21, 2016 / 9:59 pm

      Girly you could so rock white jeans in the winter! Maybe start out with light blue denim, if you’re not that brave though? That’s how I styled light colors in my latest post!

      🙂 Molly

  22. January 19, 2016 / 7:03 pm

    Can I just say…you are so beautiful! And I love that top! 🙂 And you are totally rocking those heels in the snow.
