I am obsessed with white jeans. But I have to admit, white jeans are the most high maintenance jeans you can ever get. I have been consistently replacing mine every 3 years because they just got so dirty or they ripped from being over-washed.
Since white jeans require regular replacement, it makes sense not to invest too much on one pair. In today’s post, I am going to talk about where to buy sustainable white jeans and how to care for them.
Where to Buy Sustainable White Jeans
I am sure you can find other sustainable brands that have great denim, but the below recommendation are brands that I personally have tried on.
These DL 1961 white jeans are the best pair I have ever owned. They are soft, stretchy but not too thin. However, they are not cheap, so I recommend waiting for their sales! I got them for 50% off, $86 from Revolve. Here (on sale) and here.
I tried on these Everlane white jeans, and the material was definitely on the stiffer side. While I personally prefer softer jeans, these Everlane white jeans definitely provides a lot of structure and coverage. Priced at $68, they are also very affordable too! If you only focus on the look and the price, go for them!
When it comes to jeans, I am not experimental at all! I love classic styles, but I get why others may want to try out trends. If you are one of these trend-wearers, check out these white jeans from the Reformation. The mid zipper definitely looks extremely dangerous to me, but I guess some can pull it off!
Non-sustainable White Jeans Option
I typically don’t highlight non-sustainable options, but these Old Navy white jeans are worth the mention. They are stain resistant and propel any colored liquid! I know what I will wear next time I have wine nights!
How to Care for White Jeans
Keeping your white jeans pristine is nearly impossible, but you can bleach them to maintain the color. Here are my tips when you bleach your white jeans:
Never spot treat them
Contrary to “common sense”, never spot treat your white jeans with bleach. It ends up with an uneven white color, and it looks spotty. A correct way to do this is to bleach the entire pair so you get an even white.
Never bleach them too often
If you bleach your white jeans too often, they will become more prone to rips and tears. Save up the dirts and bleach every couple months instead.
