The Best White Jeans that Aren’t See Through

The Best White Jeans that Aren’t See Through

Let’s talk about the best white jeans that aren’t see through.

There is nothing better than a crisp pair of white jeans in the summer. Dress them up, dress them down, pair them with heels or sneakers – no matter your personal style, they freshen up everything in your closet. 

See Our White Jean Outfit Formula Here. 

And if you need a new pair for the season, I’m keeping it simple with three great fitting, not see-through suggestions.

As usual, our recommendations come in a full size scale, so if you are petite, plus or tall, there are options for you below. 

Style-wise we’re featuring slim straight legs as they tend to be the most flattering fit. 

And you may be surprised to see no premium denim in our roundup, that’s because most designer brands stop at a size 14, maybe 16, which makes it hard for me recommend them. 

The ones that I found that I did like are (1) really expensive and (2) had extra details like distressing and frayed hems, touches many of our readers aren’t looking for.

So our three top picks are timeless wardrobe additions you can wear with just about anything. 

The Curvy Perfect Vintage Jean

The Curvy Perfect Vintage Jean, $128 

First up, the The Curvy Perfect Vintage Jean. These are not only a best seller from Madewell, but my personal favorite this season.

Don’t be turned off by the color in the image. While this isn’t a stark white, it’s very much white. These have great stretch, but that means they will also stretch out, so size down when you purchasing. 

Available in “standard”, petite, plus and tall

High Waisted Straight Ankle Jeans

High Waisted Straight Ankle Jeans, $40 

For a well under $50 option, (these are currently $40 with an extra 35% off at checkout) you can’t beat the deal that is Old Navy. 

Again, consider sizing down, or order two sizes to compare.

You want them to feel snug when you first put them on because most white jeans “grow” after wearing them for an hour or so. 

These classic straight legs, that hit at the ankle are available in sizes 00 – 30

Marilyn Straight Jeans

Finally, our number one Reader Favorite for the last several years are the NYDJ Marilyn Straight Jeans.

These are fantastic. Like our previous recommendations, you get comfortable stretch and fit. 

In regard to sizes, NYDJ runs like Talbots, i.e., a bit full. 

So if you are a size 10 in Talbots that would translate over to NYDJ. But if you are a size 10 in Banana Republic, you may want to take an 8. 

Same rules apply, try on multiple sizes and know it’s ok to go down one. 

The NYDJ website has the best size range, available in regular, petite and plus.

I love white jeans! However whenever I wear them I’m a magnet for every stain available. I want to wear them but for some reason no matter how hard I try I get a smudge or a spot or dirt. It’s frustrating because I do love them!

Megan, I love all your posts and look forward to each one! Can you recommend a straw bag for summer that has a closure, is not a large tote and not a cross body bag like the Mango one you recently posted. Thank you!
