W&D Style: White Hot Denim for Summer

White denim has been a go-to staple for a while. I love it for all seasons because why not break that stuffy “no white after Labor Day” rule. White jeans with your favorite loafers and a sweater are so good for a crisp fall day. In the winter, you cannot go wrong with a pair of white skinny jeans with block heel boots and a coat– when it’s not 10 below, of course. The springtime means my tee shirts can come out of their winter hiding place, and what says “hello, sunshine! I’m here” more than a striped tee and white jeans. For summer, anything goes. The bottom line is that white denim is about as versatile as your basic blue jean. If you have a baby (that spits up and spills and somehow gets everything dirty) or you yourself are responsible for more than the occasional spill, white denim can be scary. But I am here to say, FEAR NOT! I am a person who has a baby and spills on herself multiple times a day AND hates laundry. There’s nothing a little bleach and a Tide stick can’t fix.

If you already have some white jeans and are feeling a bit blah about them, I’ve rounded up some looks to get you inspired again. White denim is always a summer staple and the looks below reflect the different ways you can rock ’em. What do you wear your white denim with?
