White jeans can be tricky. Sure, they look great if you’re a size 2–but in my personal experience (which is not being a size 2), if you have even an inch of cellulite you can completely see the bumps through white jeans. Trust me–I’ve tried. For most of my adult life I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair. I’ve tried $200 jeans, maternity jeans, double reinforced jeans. Finally, at the ripe old age of 32, I found the perfect pair.

They’re these 7 for all Mankind Cropped Boot with Destroy. The material is quality and flattering, the distressing is so cool, and the cropped boot is on trend. I finally felt confident wearing white jeans–YAS! Here’s me loving every second of it:

I’m 5’6″ wearing a size 29, FYI. I love to wear these jeans with an off-the-shoulder striped top from Old Navy and some neutral flats from J.Crew that I’ve had for years (similar here). Oh, and how great are my Baublebar tassel earrings?

Since I can’t keep anything to myself, I had to share the love with my coworkers. I was on a mission, and my campaign slogan was “white jeans for all.” I was convinced that every woman could have a perfect pair of white jeans in her size. After years of feeling deprived, I wanted to end the white jean drought. It was very Oprah, circa 2004. “You get white jeans! YOU get white jeans! Everybody gets white jeans!”

Here’s our designer Paige (literally a size two) also modeling the 7FAM pair–doesn’t she look cool?

The coolest! Paige is 5’7″ and a size 2/25. She styled her look with a black cami and her signature Steve Madden backless flats. Works for a night out, right? I love her layered necklaces from Verameat and Etsy, too. 

At that point, I was a woman possessed: I had to find more great white jeans (since now I know they exist) for every woman in our office. Thank god for Old Navy… I found this awesome pair of crop kick flares for our editorial intern Jen:

I mean how adorable is she?! (Jen is 5’4″ wearing a size 4). Get her Old Navy jeans here. She’s also wearing a Rainbow bodysuit, Dr. Scholl’s Original sandals and Kendra Scott’s cool Huxley Threader earrings. Jen’s white jean look is perfect for summer parties–rooftop, pool, barbecues, DJ.

While at Old Navy, I snagged a pair for Driena, too–these Rockstar skinnies. How fly does she look in ’em?!

Driena styled her Rockstar jeans with a white tee and an Old Navy chambray shirt. For accessories, she did a brown mule from Aerosoles and a trendy Y-necklace from Kendra Scott. Love! Perfect for summer Fridays in our office.

Yay! So, there you have it–white jeans that look good on everyone. Which pair will you buy??
