Not All White Jeans Are Created Equal—These Pairs Are the Best of the Best


Even before you get to the question of red wine and barbecue sauce, white jeans can be a treacherous proposition. If the denim is too thin, they’re bound to be see-through; too thick, and they’re going to be relegated to the back of your drawer all summer (which, odds are, is exactly when you want to be wearing them).

But given how many of them we see peppering our Instagram feed come summer, there must be a Goldilocks-style solution to finding a pair that’s just right. And while you could go out and try on a few dozen pairs under unforgiving dressing room fluorescents, we’re partial to the alternative: going off the wisdom and experience of shoppers who have already taken them for a test-drive. And that’s exactly what we plan to do here. 

To save you time and energy, we’ve narrowed down 14 pairs of white jeans that come highly approved, whether by our own editors or from real reviews found online. To cover all bases, we’ve included wide leg styles, slim silhouettes, raw hems and all at various price points to suit all budgets. So, if we’ve piqued your interest, keep scrolling to find your new white jeans. 

H&M Wide High Jeans

Customer Review: “I bought them in white, in my usual size 12 and they fit perfectly. The material is thick enough for wearing in winter as well as being not at all see-through. I really can’t fault them, especially at such a good price.”

Arket Lupine High Flare Jeans

Editor Review: “Arket’s jeans are up there amongst my designer favourites, and I particularly like the cut of this flare pair. The material has a slight stretch to it that makes them comfortable to wear, without the slightest bit of haze from any underwear underneath.”—Remy Farrell, shopping editor

Mint Velvet Crop Wide Leg Jeans

Customer Review: “Love these and can’t wait to wear them. Good quality and cut, seventies style front pockets give these a modern twist.”

Agolde 90's Pinch Waist High-Rise Straight-Leg Jeans

Editor Review: There’s a reason why Agolde denim is so beloved by influencers and editors. These Pinch jeans fit perfectly on the waist whilst being balanced out by the straight-cut legs. I have them and wear them on repeat with basket bags and striped tops in the summer months.”—Emily Dawes, affiliate editor

M&S Collection Sienna Straight Leg Jeans with Stretch

Customer Review: “Just love these jeans, I have many pairs in different shades of denim, plus grey and white ones, just wish they did more colours, they wash really well, great fit, look good. 10/10”

& Other Stories Flare Cut Jeans

Editor Review: “I recently tried these on in black and, boy, did they impress me! I haven’t worn flare jeans in a long, long time but this pair have convinced me otherwise. The white pair caught my eye, too; a pure hue, I love the contrast they create with black or navy separates. I already own white jeans from & Other Stories and I’m impressed by the quality and fabrication of those, so I’m hoping I’ll have the same thoughts about this pair.”—Maxine Eggenberger, deputy editor

Whistles Stretch Slim Frayed Jeans

Customer Review: “Stunning jeans! Look amazing and great quality. I actually feel fab wearing them. Having read other reviews I did go up a size but the fit was perfect!”

Ganni White Magny Jeans

Editor Review: “I’m a big fan of all things Ganni, so you can bet its white Magnu jeans are already on my wish list. I’ve had jeans from the brand before that are perfectly starched, hold their shape, and wash well, so I have high hopes for these. I’ll definitely be stocking up on Daz, though.”—Jerrylyn Saguiped, affiliate manager

Hush Rey Barrel Jean

Customer Reviews: “Great fit, I think the elastic waistband at the back makes them more comfortable. Great length and soft denim material, very pleased.”

Toteme Twisted Seam Straight-Leg Jeans

Editor Review: “I’m chasing that quiet luxury aesthetic this season, and Toteme is making it so easy. From the leg cut to the waistline, this might just be the best pair of white jeans on the market right now. I’d wear them with a printed shirt-sleeve shirt and fisherman sandals.”—Rebecca Rhys-Evans, branded content editor  

Abercrombie & Fitch High Rise 90s Relaxed Jean

Customer Reviews: “I love the quality and feel of these jeans. I ended up ordering the next side down than I expected, I’m a size 8-10 and needed a 26. But really happy with them, fits great around my hips and waist, and super comfy. They look great with heels and also with my tan ankle boots”

Mango Mom High-Waist Jeans

Editor Review: “Easing into wearing white jeans, my favourites are this ecru pair by Mango. The soft cotton fabric is light enough for warm days, whilst not being see-through in the slighest.”—Florrie Alexander, commerce writer

Mint Velvet Houston Zip Pocket Slim Jeans

Customer Review: “I absolutely loved these so much that I’ve bought them in the khaki colour too. So comfy.”

Jigsaw Marlow 90s Jean

Editor Review: “I’m into the wide-leg jean silhouettes that are dominating this season—specifically this Jigsaw pair which are all over my social feed.”—Remy Farrell, shopping editor
