Just because it's summer doesn't mean you have to abandon all of your tried-and-true wardrobe staples from fall or spring. Take denim, for example: During the warmer months, you can ditch your skinny jeans in a dark wash and opt for more a seasonally appropriate shade like white, especially when you're not in the mood to wear your favorite pair of distressed shorts. High-waisted white denim is a great piece to build your summer outfits around because there are so many silhouette options to choose from, including cropped, wide leg or boyfriend styles, depending on what works for you.
Whether you're more of a vintage T-shirt wearer or you've got an arsenal of silky camisoles in rotation, white denim is a reliable constant that you can turn to over and over again. Slip on some espadrilles for a night out or reach for your favorite sneakers, loafers or flat sandals as you head out to run errands. (And if you're still wondering how you can pull off white jeans, we got you covered.)
