White denim is one of the best closet staples. It goes with everything and makes getting ready super easy. I wear mine at least once a week and love the versatility. Even better you can now get away with wearing them year round. Yes, that’s correct, even in the colder months. If you need some style tips, I’ve included a link to my white denim Pinterest board later in this post.
7 Reason to Love White Denim
White denim has been around since forever. I recently received a marketing email from Millard Drexler, the chairman and CEO of J.Crew. He was reflecting on past summer catalogs and trends. One of the items he mentioned was white denim. This is one reason why J.Crew has staying power. Sticking to the basics is what they do best. A lesson we can all apply when it comes to fashion. If you don’t know what to wear, reach for the items that have worked year after year.
You can wear this classic staple year round. It used to be a fashion faux pas to wear white after Labor Day, but now Fashionistas everywhere have changed that. Check out this Pinterest board for endless inspiration.
Transitions Well From Day to Night
The best thing about white denim is it transitions well from day to night. You can wear it with sandals and a classic stripe tee (for day), and at night swap out the sandals for heels and a flowy blouse. This makes being social during the work week simple, allowing you to meet up with your bestie for a few drinks.
By now you’re seeing a pattern. White denim is super versatile and not only goes from day-to-night but it also works well for the office (business casual). You can wear them with a blazer or blouse. Swipe some color on your lips and pile on the jewelry.
Easy to clean
I usually steer clear of white clothing, I only have a few white items in my closet since I’m such a clutz. I’ve been lucky when it comes to this pair of denim. I simply throw them in the wash with regular detergent, and they are good as new. To remove a stain, I recommend a few shaves of Fels Naptha. My husband turned me on to this stuff and it works every time.
White denim is classic and is still going strong. Plus it’s super on-trend and plays nice with others. Making it one of your best closet staples that you will reach for again and again.
How do you wear your white denim? Have you tried wearing in the colder months?
