White denim offers a crisp alternative to your basic blues and since they're still just a pair of jeans, it's an easy and comfortable way to lighten your look come summer. Not that you need to put them away come Labor Day. "I wear white jeans year round, though I do try to avoid the rainy days," says designer Victor Glemaud, who has shown his luxe cashmere sweaters paired with white jeans. "I wanted to make the knits pop with a casual Euro feeling, so I thought white would look really fresh." For yourself, sport white denim with a black T-shirt and some Converse Chucks on the weekend, or a gingham shirt and silk knit tie on a date. Glemaud suggests tailoring them right to the ankle (the bright white will only make your skin look tanner), or even cutting them off above the knee for a simple pair of shorts.
