Here’s a great fashion question: “I love my white jeans. Can I wear them in winter?”
In short the answer is ab-so-lute-ly! White jeans in winter are bold and classy and so much better than standard blue denim at making a statement. But you must make sure that you wear them correctly to make it fashion fabulous and not a fashion faux pas.
First, they should be heavy weight white jeans, not flimsy material that is almost sheer. Second, make sure you pair the jeans properly to make a strong POSITIVE statement:
Remember that shoes are important and a good place to start! Jeweled flats, colorful booties, chunky tie shoes or rugged boots all work and look wonderful. Strappy sandals or open toed heels are too summery and should be put away until next season.
If you go light on the bottom–like a jeweled flat–then go light on the top. A single sweater with a bold statement necklace would be polished, or go for a heavy chambray button-down top with a fun scarf tied in an interesting figure 8 or braided knot.
If you pick a more rugged boot then remember the top needs to be heavier, too. Layering is key. A turtleneck under a blazer and a chunky infinity scarf are the perfect pairing. A cable sweater over a long white top (tails showing) and a winter plaid scarf are also good choices.

Our Team recommendations:
Landi (pictured right): You can wear white jeans in winter–and wear it with a bright color. I like blue with white jeans. And I love adding in metallics. We have black, fur trimmed Michael Kors booties that would look amazing with white jeans along with a black & gold long sweater.
Alyssa W. (pictured left): I like the look of white jeans in winter. I envision tan boots, a burgundy sweater, hair up in a bun and lots of gold jewelry. It’s the perfect casual, pulled-together look for running weekend errands.
