Shop the Very Best White (Ecru, Ivory, and Cream) Jeans Just in Time for Summer

It would be wrong to proclaim a single pair of white jeans “the best” when really the best white jeans for women vary from person to person. Everyone has a silhouette and shade that make them feel most confident and comfortable. No matter the specific wash, cut, fit, or fabric feel you’re after, we’re here to help end the search for the perfect pair (or two).

Blanched denim was once looked at as an exclusive summer item, a piece with a lifespan of Memorial to Labor Day. However, the old-fashioned rule has been thrown out the window, and white denim has rightfully earned its place as an all-year-long staple, thanks to its variety of silhouettes and sartorial versatility. There are slouchy soft styles that go swimmingly with a bikini top, flip flops, and summer camp jewelry for casual beach days. There are also crisp tailored and tapered silhouettes that pair well with button-ups and structured blazers for a put-together look for our long-awaited returns to the office. The white jean is a seamless substitute for classic blue jeans, trousers, or shorts.

To narrow down the overwhelming options of crops, flares, straight legs, high, mid, and low-rises (yes, low-rise is back), washes, we’ve edited down a handful of our favorite styles that are sure to fit the bill. To add even more variety to the mix, we’ve included more than bleach-white denim. There’s a handful of other shades to consider, like ecru, ivory, bone, and cream. Plus, some of these styles are made with environmentally sustainable practices.

Here, Vogue’s guide to the very best white jeans for women to wear this summer and beyond.
