Yes, we can finally wear white jeans like crazy, especially since it’s after Memorial Day. For many social rebels out there, wearing white at the first hint of summer heat was a good enough excuse. Don’t have any white denim in your closet? Perhaps you’re a bit unsure how to pair white jeans with summer’s hottest trends and accessories? I understand. Coming from a gal who had way too many black clothes in the closet, it can be scary to get out of your comfort zone.

Take a look at what’s out right now. Many fashion labels are cautiously rolling out a couple of white denim statement pieces that anybody can add to their jeans closet. Do you like super skinny jeans? Are you a petite height? Do you want to find an office to evening pair of white denim trousers? Or maybe you want something more rocked out and pool party friendly? No worries. There are so many styles available now — even online — it will make your head spin. For summer, white denim will go fabulously with the season’s neon trend. Look for tops that are accented with neon stripes or trim. Just don’t end up wearing something that makes you look like a school crossing guard. Not into neon? Your safe bet would be tan leather platform shoes or airy, black sandals. White shoes are okay, too. Just be sure to break up your white a bit. What’s the point in wearing white denim jeans if you’re going to look like a Fashionista moonlighting as a painter? Dress to get noticed!

What’s also great about white denim is, you can extend the wear beyond the summer. Wearing white jeans in the fall is absolutely acceptable. I’m planning on wearing my white jeans into the fall, when I get into a genteel mood to meet friends for afternoon tea or for a walk through some botanical gardens. As a Gemini, I do have my frisky, edgy side, so I’ll need my rocker wannabe jeans that will go with a leather jacket or kick-your-face-in boots. White goes with any colorful top; and white jeans go well with more mellow fall tones, such as tan, gray, and even black. It’s all in your attitude baby!
