I've often gravitated towards a more minimalist style, so my wardrobe consists of chic basics that I can rewear. While my style tends to vary based on my mood, I like wearing neutrals the most, as I find it easier to mix and match different styles together to dress a piece of clothing up or down. That said, the item I want to talk about today is white jeans. It can often be a divisive piece. For a long time, a lot of people have been frightened of wearing them, not least because they can get dirty quickly. They can also be off-putting because some are unsure of how to style them and believe they're only good for the summer months.
But I have one pair of white jeans, and they are so versatile and have taken me through each season. The straight fit from Nanushka is my ideal pair of white jeans. They're a great basic to own—not only for the warmer sun-drenched months but through to the winter, too. Here, I've styled my favourite pair five different ways. Scroll to see the best white jeans I've picked out and to see how to style them.

I love wearing a pair of straight-leg white jeans with my comfortable Birkenstocks and a blazer for a thrown-on but put-together look, even if I'm just running out for a flat white.
Arket Oversized Wool Hopsack Blazer (£135)
Birkenstock Arizona Oiled Leather (£85)

This is my ideal date-night outfit. Some may think that an all-white outfit is boring. However, I think that it is so much more, and it's actually very striking. It's also very daring unless you only eat and drink clear foods and liquids, so it's perfect for anyone who loves to live on the edge.

Alas, the green version is sold out everywhere, but there's good news: The shirt also comes in a bold cyan blue, which will look just as incredible. Throw it over a cropped white vest and finish with a pair of black ballerina pumps.
