The White Jeans Spectrum

Styling Tip

Not sure how to pull off white jeans? Wear them just like your blue ones—with a denim jacket, dark cardigan or unstructured sport coat. Swap the white T-shirt for a heather gray, or opt for a dressier blue oxford button down or even a chambray shirt.

You know by now that rules were made to be broken. Take your rebellious style up a notch and get a pair of white jeans. After all, everyone from James Bond to popular street style stars have long been spotted wearing these bright alternatives to your tried-and-true blues. It's a much-needed dose of confident style for men who want to make a statement with their style. Is it for everyone?
