The Perfect Summer Denim

The Perfect Summer Denim

I have been on the lookout for new white jeans for this Spring/Summer. I ended up donating two pairs of my older jeans because they were a little big and didn’t fit just right any longer. I also wanted to find a pair that had that slight crop and high waist. (I am obsessed with the high waist trend and I’ve gotten rid of all of my jeans that aren’t!) Shopbop had their big Spring sale last week so I took advantage and ordered 8 pairs of different styles to try on. (Who actually shops in person anymore, anyway!?)

The ones pictured below are the versions I tried. I liked a few, but there was one clear winner from my new favorite denim brand.


My favorite pair

THESE were my favorite, hands-down. They are stiff enough to hold you in but stretchy enough to be really comfortable, semi-cropped with the slightest flared and frayed bottoms. Essentially, they’re perfect in every way. I have a couple pairs of denim in other colors/styles from this brand and they are my new favorite. (I especially love these which are selling out everywhere).


The best high-waist + light wash

I also loved THESE in white (I have them in the regular wash, pictured here). These are a bit stiffer and take longer to break in, but once they do, they are amazing and I fully recommend!

If you’re looking for a full-length pair of white jeans, I also ordered THESE recently and preferred this more affordable option over some more expensive brands like Frame, Mother, etc.

Hopefully this is helpful if you’re on the hunt for your new summer denim!
