First, I tried the more custom technique by entering my measurements and fit preferences. I knew I wanted a pair of white jeans, so I just searched through the dozen-or-so matches for a pair that came in white and voila- we have a deal! I also tried the process where you select a pair you already have from a list and it came up with mostly the same dozen-or-so pairs, so clearly I have a type.
I experimented with both methods, several times, and I can safely say the process is very easy – so easy, a male model could handle it. Payment was a breeze and my Paige denim Normandie egg shell jeans were on their way. They must have had them in stock, because I got my jeans in about a week.
I was pretty excited about my white jeans, because I’ve never had a pair of white jeans and, you know, YOLO- or whatever. I tried them on and immediately realized my blue boxers weren’t going to work with these pants. After a quick trip to the store for some tighty whities, I was ready for the joys these pants would unlock. For some reason, I was imagining them to be like gritty, Andrew WK style white jeans- but once I got them, I realized I had selected more yacht-rock, Hall and Oates style slack-y jeans, but that’s cool. I’ll rock that 80’s look, no problem.
White-jeans-wearing-season has almost officially arrived, but what about putting a twist on this classic style? Hudson Jeans is releasing a line of white cut-off shorts and white skinny jeans dip-dyed in hues of cyan, magenta, and other tempting pastels. If you were looking for a way to add some interest to your spring look, this is it.
These jeans are available now at the Hudson Jeans e-shop.

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.)

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?

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).

We love when new designers direct their energy and fresh perspective into experimental, interesting garments. German-born Saskia Schijen does not disappoint! Though she only graduated from the Royal College of Art this year, her high-concept–but not unwearable–creations have landed her a spot on our denim designer watch list. While maintaining a clean and simple aesthetic, Schijen plays with proportion, shying away from ubiquitous skinny fit jeans and creating oversize denim pants that look as if they’ve been deconstructed, reconstructed, and then haphazardly belted to perfection. Though combining white, indigo, and baby blue washes could easily get muddled under less skilled hands, the different dyes are blocked out to a bold and graphic effect. Unexpected, perhaps, but all the more welcome.
