How To Wear White Jeans After Labor Day

#1. Pair white jeans with warm neutrals like tan and cognac. Note how the boots and scarf make it a fall outfit.

#2. I also love white jeans paired with gray. For summer, a gray tee and white jeans is a great, easy look. For fall, pair your white jeans with a chunky gray sweater. Again, the scarf and jeans make it undeniably a fall outfit.

#3. You can even do white on white if the sweater is somewhat heavy and you wear booties or boots on the bottom. I love how she uses the brown belt to separate the white top from the white jeans.

#4. Break out your military jacket and wear it with white jeans over a neutral tee or sweater. Pair it with booties or boots.

#5. White jeans with a chambray shirt always work. To make it look more wintry, wear boots and consider a scarf.

#6. For a bold winter look, pair your white jeans with a heavy sweater in bright jewel tones. For bonus points, add a wool scarf. Definitely wear knee-high boots with this look. Or UGGs.

#7. On a rainy day, pair your white jeans with your wellies. I ADORE this look. In fact, I cannot wait for the next rainy day. I AM SO doing this.
