I found the BEST white jeans ever (after trying on 15 brands!!!)

A round up of allllll the white jeans I tried before I found the best white jeans ever! 

Hey y’all! Happy Friday! We’ve got a busy weekend ahead and I’m so looking forward to it! We have dinner with friends tonight, a wedding tomorrow and are celebrating with Tommy’s mom for Mother’s Day on Sunday. In between all that, we’re couch shopping, working out (I’m hoping to run at Salem Lake) and just doing general life stuff. Hope you have a good weekend ahead too!

Onto today’s topic: white jeans. I’ve always thought that white jeans looked SO cute — on other people. Year after year, I would try on a pair in the spring and feel so frustrated since they looked AWFUL on me. I couldn’t figure it out! They made me look MUCH heavier than I actually am or showed every imperfection or just looked frumpy. They all looked terrible, even the ones from brands that I typically love. So I made it my mission last year to find a pair I loved, and I ordered FIFTEEN pairs to try on and compare. And I finally found a WINNER!!!!

All the brands of white jeans I ordered:

  1. Madewell
  2. Gap
  3. J.Crew
  4. Joe’s
  5. Hudson
  6. 7 for All Mankind
  7. Levi’s
  8. Boden
  9. Madewell
  10. Frame
  11. Articles of Society
  12. DL 1961
  13. J. Brand
  14. Paige
  15. AG

I currently own or have owned all of these brands in the past so I knew I loved, them but it took trying a bunch of white jeans to find a pair that worked for me. I’m petite at 5’1″ and curvier than most petite frames since I have decent sized quads and glutes from running & lifting. So it was hard to find a pair that fit me well. If you struggle to find cute white jeans, I highly recommend trying on a BUNCH — there was a clear winner in my book. (I ordered the majority from Nordstrom since they have an amazing return policy and we don’t have a Nordstrom in Winston, so so so sad. And some I bought directly from the site, including Gap, J.Crew and Boden.)

And the Best White Jeans Ever award goes to… MADEWELL!!!!

They’re the perfect shade of white, not too tight, not too loose, not too thin and not see through (which was shockingly common with many pairs, yikes). I seriously love them. And they certainly weren’t the most expensive jeans I ordered, so that was a major plus.

What’s your favorite brand of white jeans? And am I the only one who seriously struggled to find a good pair?!?

    Good to know girl! I need to go try some madewell jeans on now!

    Madewell white jeans are the first pair of white jeans I ever owned, and I didn’t try on many others. I love mine, too! For the longest time I resisted buying white jeans for many of the reasons you listed. Madewell’s jeans changed my mind though.

    I haven’t tried jeans from any of those companies, but my favorite white jeans/pants are from Van Heusen. Generally I have a hard time finding jeans that fit me the way I like. I tried American Eagle jeans in high school, and haven’t looked back since. Dressy or casual pants – Van Heusen
    Jeans – American Eagle

    Love your blog and clothing recommendations. As someone with chicken legs (no curves or muscles here, despite plenty of running), I wonder whether the clothes you like would fit me well, too. Probably not.

    Did I miss the link for the twist back top? Super cute!
