W&D Style: White Hot Denim for Summer

Fashion & Style

W&D Style: White Hot White Denim for Summer – Wit & DelightWhite 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?

    White denim jeans are one of my favourite pieces. Mine don’t fit me anymore, so I’m trying to find a new, perfect pair. This is lovely inspiration for the wardrobe!

    Love all the clothes, but it’s a real bummer when most everything linked to is already sold out.
