There are few things quite as synonymous with Scandinavian summer fashion than white denim trousers. Our most reliable friend throughout winter months, denim is no stranger to us. But there's something about the revival of white jeans from the back of your wardrobe that signals the season of sunshine has arrived.

Below, find five Vogue Scandinavia-approved ways to wear your white jeans throughout all the occasions that summer will bring.

Casual chic

Picture this: you have a date night planned, or you've scheduled an after-work get-together with your best friends. No occasion could call more clearly for white denim. Our take on the casual yet sophisticated look required involves luxe earrings, a black top with subtly elegant details, and a playful footwear twist.

An everyday look based around white denim trousers can take on make different forms, based on your mood. Perhaps you feel like a casual spin with T-shirt or tank top, or you are in the mood for slouchy take – in which case a crisp shirt is the perfect choice. This season, we're are also adding a pair of colourful sneakers to add a trendy note to an otherwise timeless look.

Day party in white trousers

It may be denim, but white jeans can make the cut for a party setting. When wearing them for a more festive occasion we recommend you invest in a pair with some more elegant detailing: be it high-waist, folded lining, interesting pockets or a special crop. Aside from those finer details, details we recommend you style the trousers with contrasting hues to give the look a lift.

Office appropriate

A corporate office dress code does normally not include denim, however, white jeans surpass this rule book. When styling white trousers for the office we would recommend you to invest in a sleek, timeless design that has a crop around the ankle. With it, we would add a blazer, a pair of a ballet flats and a scarf to add a pop of colour.

White on white and white

White on white is a forever classic that works just as well in the case of styling white denim trousers. We love a white look with subtly contrasting shades of white to give the look some more depth. An effective option here would be to add some off-white accessories.
