Shay Mitchell, the star of “Pretty Little Liars,” recently stepped out wearing a pair of the new Paige Denim Catalina shorts in Optic White, complemented by her Rebecca Minkoff Becky blazer and Yves Saint Laurent heels. These mid-rise denim shorts with a slight frayed hem will be available for Spring 2013. Shay took advantage of the extended Los Angeles summer to spiff up in head-to-toe white to shoot photos for her new blog at ShayMitchblog.tumblr.com. What do you think? Does this get you excited for the return of spring?

One thing’s certain, denim lovers: leaving the house in August wearing head-to-toe black is sure to make a statement, but it could also result in a not-so-stylish heat stroke. Wearing white denim, a white blazer, and a fresh white t-shirt however, will keep you a few degrees cooler and will amp up your tan. Below, we break down one style blogger’s look piece by piece.

Summer is THE season for white denim, but there’s always ample amounts of anxiety about how to wear the clean (and must-be-kept-clean) hue. Our friends at Raven Denim have passed along two excellent styling tips that result in “a less predictable look” than your chic-but-expected blue denim or chambray pairings, and we’re eager to try them on for size. Which look suits you?
Soft & Feminine: For a vibe that’s ultra-sweet and classically girly, pair white denim pieces with soft pastels and neutrals.
Hard & Bold: On the flip side, wear crisp white denim with bold primary colors–they’ll definitely pop! (Even if you’re not poolside.)

The very definition of crisp, white denim is an often eschewed in favor of darker shades, when people want a slimmer silhouette. But those who brave this clean look won’t be disappointed–unless, of course, you stumble around in some dirt, wet paint, or another otherwise unwelcome substance. Take inspiration from these celebrities, who wear their white jeans in completely different ways, from Pippa Middleton’s preppy blazer combo to Katie Holmes’s nautical outfit. It’s the simplest way to stay fresh, folks!
1. Pippa Middleton (and her famous bum) look great in white denim skinnies and an aptly-royal blue blazer. This is princess wear and professionalism at its finest.
2. White jeans offer the great option of denim-on-denim looks without worrying about being too overwhelmingly blue. Annalyne McCord pairs her flares with a Western denim shirt.
3. Busy mom Katie Holmes goes casual with a striped shirt and go-anywhere tan boots.
4. Cameron Diaz shows off her edgier style with a head-to-toe white look broken up with a black leather jacket.
5. Model Elle Macpherson pairs her jeans with a punchy orange shirt and earthier hippie accessories, like gold bangles and dark brown sandals.

One of our favorite ways to wear white denim is to accencuate your pair of jeans with a pop of color. You can keep the palette simple with white jeans, a white top and break up the outfit with a standard brown belt. But what will take this summer-ready outfit from basic to fashion forward? A dash, pop or hint of any neon. Bold and bright neons are stampeding the fashion scene this season and what way to better have your accessories stand out? What’s your favorite accent color?

We chose three leading ladies (one singer, one model, and one actress) to showcase their personal denim style and inspire your outfits for early spring! Check out Katy Perry, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, & Michelle Trachtenberg in their respective denim picks (and if you like it, click and grab a pair).
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was snapped looking fierce Pierre Balmain ankle zip jeans with a red denim jacket. These babies are sold out everywhere, but try this similar pair of Victoria Beckham twist ankle zip skinnies.
Katy Perry was seen in a pair of J Brand 910 Low-Rise Skinny Jeans in wink—those are pretty much sold out everywhere too (no surprise), but you can still score the equally gorgeous J Brand 811 mid-rise in wink (we prefer mid-rise over low-rise anyway).
Michelle Trachtenberg was spotted in a pair of Rag & Bone skinny jeans in Iris while filming Gossip Girl. Check out those killer shoes!

Set against whitewashed adobe walls and colorful folk blankets, Turkish brand Mavi’s collection for spring still retains the Mediterranean feel the line is known for, while also incorporating Western-style influences. If there’s one lesson that we can learn from their latest range of colored jeans, indigo washes, and denim shirts, it’s that denim goes excellent with–you guessed it!–even more denim. The key is picking washes that are either radically different, like pairing stark white denim shirts with mustard yellow jeans, or garments that perfectly meld together wash-wise for a monochromatic look (with different proportions, of course).
