How to style a white denim jacket

1) With white jeans

Create a fresh and modern look with your white jacket by pairing it with a pair of white skinny jeans. Create a full all-white look by adding a white crop top and white sneakers to complete your look. You could also add a pop of color by opting for a pair of heels in a bright color and/or a crop top in a solid bright color.

During the colder months, swap your sneakers or heels for a pair of ankle boots. You could also wear a thin sweater underneath your white jacket for a chic look that will also keep you warm.

A great outfit you can create with a white jacket is a contrasting one whereby you pair it with black jeans. This is such a simple yet eye-catching look you can create effortlessly as you most likely already own a pair of black jeans.

Opt for distressed jeans for a very casual vibe. For your choice of top, a white tee, or tank top work fine. During the Fall months, opt for a sweater and a pair of white boots.

5) With blue jeans

Blue jeans are the perfect choice to go with when styling your white jacket for a more business casual event. I suggest opting for dark wash jeans as they tend to be more formal. Complete this great look with a pair of ballet flats and a simple top.

If you’re feeling sunny and bright, choose a floral blouse to make your outfit come alive. This is such a classy way to wear denim on denim.

6) With a dress

Switch up how you style your dresses during the warmer months by pairing them with a white denim jacket instead of your usual blue one. Create a different look with your LBD by throwing on a white denim jacket for date night. A pair of heels are the best choice of footwear in this case. To create a less formal look, opt for an oversized jacket rather than a cropped one.

During the Fall, wrap a scarf around your neck to add an extra layer of warmth and choose a pair of ankle boots.
