Spring is fully here and one of my favorite clean and crisp pieces to wear is white pants—whether it be jeans, wide-leg trousers or cropped white chinos. This wardrobe essential is a summer staple and one you need to have in your closet so you can build classic, timeless and minimalist outfits with ease.

white pants outfits ideas for spring and summer

If you’re looking for white pants outfit ideas, I’ve got you covered with the perfect looks for casual outings, date nights and everything in between.

White Pants to Have in Your Closet

Right now, looser cuts and wide-leg styles are in style and I absolutely love it. They have this effortless vibe to them that’s subtle and sexy without looking like you tried too hard. When looking at bringing in white pants into your wardrobe, you don’t have to stick to pure white.

In fact, overly white pants can look cheap and are often see-through. Opt for cream or bone hues that are just slightly off white. Pairing these tones with a crisp white shirt provides depth and interest to your outfit and makes it look more elevated.

White Jeans or Bone-Colored Jeans

For white denim, I tend to opt for bone-colored jeans. If you prefer a crisp white, then go for it. I like the more casual vibe of an off-white color and find that they don’t get dirty quite as easily—at least you can’t see it as well. I bought this pair (this is the pair I’m wearing below) recently and I absolutely love them. Great length (I’m 5’8″) and the raw hem is so cool and casual. Here are some more options for great white jeans:

Cropped Wide-Leg White Pants

Another great staple pair is a wide-leg cropped pant in a cotton, linen or twill fabric. My favorite Colette pants come in a white linen that would be perfect—nice and lightweight and can be dressed up or down. Here are some great options:

White Wide-Leg Trousers

Lastly, a gorgeously draped wide-leg white trouser is one of my wardrobe staples this year. Again, I opt for a cream with this style of pants because I think it makes them look so much more chic and elevated. This pair of trousers (styled below!) is my go-to and just a note, they come LONG! I’m 5’8″ and even with heels they were too long. Since I mostly wear flats, I had them altered to wear with sneakers and sandals. Here are a few more options:

White Pants Outfit Ideas to Try

Get inspired with these stylish outfits and create a summer wardrobe with a laid-back vibe that looks cool, effortless and chic. There are endless styling options for white pants, so let’s get to it!

White Jeans With a Plain White Tank or TShirt

White jeans paired with a white tank or t-shirt create a classic and timeless look that exudes a chic and sophisticated vibe. The monochromatic combination of these neutral colors not only creates a clean and polished aesthetic but also helps to elongate the silhouette and create a sleek and cohesive outfit.

Monochromatic looks have the power to elevate your outfit by adding a sense of elegance and minimalism, making it easy to style and perfect for any occasion. A casual cotton shirt makes this outfit perfect for everyday wear with a par of sneakers and a casual jacket, or dressed up with heels and statement earrings.

For another chic monochrome outfit, swap the jeans for trousers and your outfit instantly has a dressier vibe. This combination is one of my favorite ways to wear white pants outfits!

White Trousers with Quilted Jacket

Tank | Jacket | Bag, similar | Sneakers

I came across a similar look on Pinterest and knew I had to recreate it. Trousers can be dressed up or down, and here I’ve made them more casual by pairing with my favorite sneakers, a simple white tank and this fun quilted jacket that’s the perfect light layer.

White Trousers With a Green Shirt

Sezane Top | Bag | Sandals, similar

Green is my favorite color, so while I usually stick with neutral colors, green is where I branch out! This gorgeous embroidered top from Sezane is a favorite, though old. Green and white are so fresh and bright for spring and summer. Play around with different shades of green and different styles of shirts to see what works. You’ll likely end up with several new outfits!

If green isn’t your thing, try another bold color or bright color that fits your personal aesthetic.

White Jeans With an Oversized Denim Shirt

Denim Shirt | Sandals | Bag

As a mom, easy outfits are kind of my go-to. I love this outfit for a casual work day at home, lunch or coffee with friends or school drop-off and pick-ups. Denim and white are so classic and this flips your typical jeans and a shirt idea on its head.

For warmer days, wear your favorite black or white tank underneath and use your denim or chambray shirt as more of a light jacket for a cool, layered look.

If you don’t have a denim shirt, try pairing another blue shirt to create another chic outfit.

White Pants Outfits with a Striped Shirt

Stripes are a great way to add interest and color to a simple, minimalistic outfit. I love having different styles and colors of stripes to create totally new looks.

To create definition at your waist, tuck in your shirt, and add a belt for a simple yet sophisticated look.

White Jeans with a Floral Shirt

Nothing says spring and summer like a flouncy floral shirt! I love having some fun, boho-inspired pieces like this top in my closet. They’re breathable and add the perfect pop of color.

Before buying a new floral shirt, search your closet and see what floral or flouncy tops you have that could work with white pants. Stick with lighter pastel colors, darker colors can look really stark against white pants and feel unbalanced.

White Pants with a Pretty Cardigan

Cardigan | Bag | Sandals, similar

A lightweight cardigan can make for the perfect top on it’s own, or as a layer over a tank or camisole. This such a classic look and an easy one to pull together. Opt for lightweight cardigans and to give shape to your outfit, tuck the front in and unbutton a few buttons at the top. Add some dainty jewelry and you’re set.

White Jeans with Cropped Linen Vest

Top | Bag | Sandals

I grabbed this cropped linen top as a set to go with these linen pants, and I’ve been wearing it with so many different pieces like my white jeans. What I love about this style of cropped top is that it’s not super tight. It balances out the wide-leg jeans and adds some interest.

I’m seeing button-up vests a lot and while it’s not quite my style, I do think they look amazing with white jeans and pants for a chic summer look.

White Trousers with a Black Tank Top

Tank | Bag | Sandals, similar

Another classic look for my girls who love minimalism. Throw on these easy white trousers, add a black tank, belt and your favorite sandals and bag and you’re ready to go. If you need an extra layer, grab a denim jacket or this oversized denim shirt.

White Jeans with a Linen Button-Down Shirt

Shirt | Bag | Sandals

This look feels so beachy and coastal with the oversized linen shirt. To balance the oversized button-down shirt, only button a few buttons and tuck half into your pants.

This creates a little more shape and definition, but keeps the look easy and effortless. Just need a sun hat and a good book!

White Trousers with a Cropped Shirt

Tank | Bag | Sandals

Top | Bag | Sandals

This is one of my go-to looks for summer date nights. It’s chic, elevated and a touch edgy with the cropped shirt, but also comfortable. I pair with simple flat sandals and some gold hoops.

You can pair just about any color top here. These two are some of my favorites, but each have their own distinct vibe.

How to Wear White Jeans in Cold Weather Months

This is a great time to break that fashion rule of “no white in winter”. Winter white can be so chic! The biggest tricks here are picking the right fabrics and opting for less stark white colors. Warmer whites look and feel more elegant, chic and appropriate for winter months. For colder months, see how I like to style white jeans for fall and winter here.
