What To Wear With Light Wash Jeans
Let’s talk about what to wear with light wash jeans! They’re the perfect denim for the summer, but outfits with them can be tricky. Here are some tips.
Let’s talk about how to wear light wash jeans
A few weeks ago I got a reader question about what tops to wear with light wash jeans.
I have a few pairs of light wash jeans that are on constant repeat during the summer months, so I wanted to share a few easy outfits you can wear with this style of jeans (and my favorites are all linked at the bottom of this post).
Here are ideas of what goes well with light wash jeans
The easy answer is, you can wear anything you want! Every color looks great with these jeans – don’t overthink it!
Try these with light wash jeans:
- bold colors
- black or white
- feminine tops
- printed tops
- ruffle sleeves
The options are endless!!
Here’s the most important thing when choosing your outfit
Here are a few important things to remember:
- Choose light wash jeans THAT FIT. No gapping at the waist, no pointed crotch, no squeezing to fit into them.
- Light was jeans are casual, so make sure you’re choosing tops accordingly. If you choose a dressier top, choose dressier shoes to match.
I’ll be sharing more ideas over on Instagram today for Get Dressed with Merrick, but check out a bunch of ideas below!
Outfit Floral top
I liked keeping this all blue tones with the blue floral shirt and light was jeans.
Outfit Basic tee with a scarf
A basic tee is perfect with light wash jeans. If the outfit is feeling boring, add a fun neck scarf!
Outfit Feminine blouse with neutral heels
Don’t be afraid to dress up your jeans! Just make sure your shoes and top are similar dressy levels.
Outfit Neutral tones
I loved pairing a cream top with these light wash jeans – the brown belt ties it all in.
Outfit Feminine blouse and embellished sandals
I love this outfit. A feminine blouse dresses up the more masculine style of jeans, and the embellished shoes match the dressiness level. Adding a baseball hat in a neutral, more feminine style, compliments the casual jeans perfectly.
Outfit Add a casual jacket
You can absolutely wear a jacket with light jeans. An olive jacket like this is a great casual option.
Outfit Lace top with embellished sandals
Again, the top and the shoes make sense together since they’re both dressy. Don’t choose a super dressy top and very casual shoes.
Outfit Black shirt and boots
Yes, you can wear black with light-wash jeans! Balance out the dark top with some dark booties. I love this outfit for a fall day when it’s still hot.
Outfit Try a bright sunshine color
Again, don’t be afraid to do bold colors with your light jeans! This one has a flutter sleeve, so I made sure to balance the fullness with a tucked in shirt (we need to create a waist!)
Outfit A sweatshirt and hat
Don’t think that light wash jeans are just for summer! You can wear them into fall with a sweatshirt and flats, sneakers, or boots!
