There’s something undeniably chic about white denim. Switching out your everyday blues for something lighter adds effortless polish to dressed-up looks as well as off-duty weekend style. “Wearing white denim really makes the rest of your outfit pop,” says Maggee Villanueva, who works at our NYC flagship on Madison Ave. For the inside scoop, we asked some of the women from our Johnny Was stores around the country to give their tips, trends and favorite ways to style their whites.

East Coast Pick

Maggee, from our Madison Ave, NYC store: I love the Embroidered Cropped Baby Boot, it’s great if you’re on the shorter side, the fit is really flattering and the tone-on-tone embroidery really brings it all together. Some of my favorite Johnny Was pieces to wear with white is the Scarf Mix Blouse, or since NYC always has air conditioning overload in stores and restaurants during the summer, I’ll layer with the Biya Acattor Hooded Duster if I’m dashing around.

Weekend Updates

Rachel, from our Montecito, CA store: Being in California we can sport white denim most of the year, even on a grey February day I’ll bundle up in our Open Stripe Long Cardigan and ankle boots. For summer, I love the Cropped Baby Boot. You can’t go wrong pairing white with white like the River Eyelet Blouse for something dressy. For weekends, I love a button down like the top in our Yoru Set. Also, don’t forget to pick some bright and standout accessories like our Camilla Sandal in Rouge or my favorite Taylor Clutch Bag.

Bright Ideas

Sierra, from our Houston, TX store: I am officially obsessed with the Cropped Baby Boot right now; I feel like they suck you in a little bit, hold everything in place while still being beyond comfortable. I love to wear contrast with my white jeans, either a really bright blouse or a darker one for night time. From this collection, my favorite daytime pick is the Naples Tie Top in Sunrise. It’s so pretty and really highlights my skin tone and did you notice how my manicure also matches :)
