Minimal, refined and clean, white jeans serve as the perfect blank slate for your summer styling sessions. From day to evening, you can wear white denim. Just pair your crisp jeans with bright, bold colors for day (neon, too), or metallic and dark hues for evening. The trick is to mirror what you see in nature for the perfect summer street style. We’ve rounded up a half-dozen pairs of cool white jeans, whether cropped, flared or skinny, to suit your summer plans. Which pairs would you choose?
1. Mother Denim Cropped Skinny 2. MIH Jeans Marrakesh Flare 3. rag & bone/JEAN Mid-Rise Skinny
4. A.P.C. Cured Cream Jeans 5. James Jeans Boyfriend Shorts 6. ASOS Supersoft Ultra Skinny

Like many of us, we weren’t sure we would ever wear floral jeans, but this trend has entered into the spring fashion vernacular in full force. After seeing The Glamourai (Kelly Framel) style her floral denim look on her blog, we were emboldened to try it. And, after reviewing all the gorgeous assortment of floral printed denim coming from our favorite denim brands, we just had to share 9 of the most covetable jeans in bloom. Thrown together with a neutral top and platform sandals—with ankle jeans—and you’ll be ready to rock the cement catwalk.

It’s been a long week of waiting, and we want to thank everyone who entered our Bleulab reversible denim cut-off shorts giveway last week! Since Monday was Memorial Day (and we hope you had as stellar a weekend as we did), we’re finally revealing the winner today. The winner described an awesome summer outfit and adhered to all of our contest rules, as well as put a big smile on our faces. Click through to see if it’s you!…
The winning comment, from our winner, Lynsi:
“These shorts are just too fun! I’d def pair them with something that would let the shorts take the stage. Maybe a pop of color with the top, in a slouchy fit. Then, I’d pair them with a fun, minimalist pair of sandals and a bunch of noisy bangles on my wrists. Thanks for hosting this contest, Denim Therapy and thanks for the chance to win these ultra fun shorts, BleuLab. Very cool.”
Congratulations, Lynsi! We’ll be contacting you soon with more information on how to claim your shorts. Check out some of our other favorite comments below, where you shared your awesome summer style ideas!
“I would style these shorts with a great tan and a bright colored shirt for summer!” —njsunbunny
“Every pair of denim shorts I own were jeans at one point, cut apart by me, and are now covered in various paints, glues, bleach, fabric dyes, and wood stain because whatever I’m wearing when I craft turns into a fashion napkin. These would probably be treated the same way but I could keep one side clean for a quick change from human art smock to fancy shorts-wearer.” —Comeuppances
“I would pair these with a bright colored tank or off the shoulder t-shirt with strappy sandals.” —Lovenotesxo
“I would pair them with an oversized bright colored tank and some fun accessories. Then I would reverse the shorts and wear them at night with a cute silky top and some booties.” —DaisieBelle
“I would wear them with my white v neck t shirt and some of my favorite sandals.” —Bessie Burnsed
“I would (first) wear these with my yellow halter top & super cute wedges. Then I’d wear them with ever other cute summer top in my closet!” —Jessica Caviness
“I would style these with a loose round neck james perse t-shirt, black laser cut sandals, and lots of tribal style jewelry!” —Karen Walker
“Would totally rock these shorts with a Simdog t-shirt, sunglasses, chunky necklace and a pair of high heeled sandals!” —Kim
“I would wear the coated shorts with a vintage tee, flats, and a cool necklace.” —Courtney Stecz
“I’d wear them with a fun lacey tank top for contrast and some bright colored espadrilles.” —Ladyboarder9669
“I would style them with a transparent white shirt, wearing a tube top or some nice bikini underneath it. I would also go for large dangling gold earrings, surf waves in my hair and then a pair of high heeled sandals in a bright color.” —Sara
