White Jean Jackets For Every Body

Our favorite white jean jackets in classic and current styles. Here are our picks for refreshing this spring/summer closet staple.
Six to Sunday

What to wear when the air conditioning is cranked or the weather turns on a dime? A white jean jacket, that’s what.

Whether you like stark white or any one of the neutral “off” shades, there are lots of shapes to choose from. Try a shrunken style over long dresses and blouson shirts in order to control the volume, or opt for something oversized with skinny jeans and leggings.

Pro-style tips?

  • It’s not only ok to mix white and beige shades within an outfit, it’s chic! Play with proportions, blend textures, and don’t worry about “matching.”
  • When in doubt, one size up beats a size down when it comes to buying white clothes—the hue tends to accentuate size, not minimize it.
  • When the white loses its brightness (or if you’ve got a noticeable stain), it’s time for a replacement—the choices are too good at too many price points not to (Exhibit A below).

Classic White Jean Jacket

A classic piece always works! We looked for all the things we know you love, like simple designs, good value, and in a variety of shapes. This cut makes for easy styling, too: Throw it on with anything!

Old Navy. 100% cotton means limited stretch, but the price is great.

ASOS. We like the shorter, waist-length cut with adjustable hem. This one reads “current”.

ASOS Yours Denim Jacket

Banana Republic. A white jean jacket that reads uber clean and classic in petite and standard sizing.

Kut From The Kloth. A longer denim jacket (thank you, extra coverage) with traditional buttons that are offset by a raw hem.

Kut From The Kloth Kara Denim Jacket

Vineyard Vines. A super body-accommodating pick due to the cotton-spandex blend. Classically cut.

Hudson. A classic look with a slightly boxy shape for those who like a little more midsection room without going to the oversized look.

Hudson Classic Denim Trucker Jacket

Ecru. A premium pick that has been a best-seller for years because of the quality denim, stretch content, and stylized frayed hem.

Oversized Denim Jacket

Oversized is “in” this year—oversized button-downs, cargo pants, jeans, and yes, even jean jackets. We happen to embrace this trend because it is super body accommodating, but our pro tip to avoid adding volume to your body is to keep it balanced—pair it with slimmer pants, a more fitted shirt underneath, or a belt to define your waist.

Pilcro - Anthropologie. An on-trend piece for its off-white color, oversized shape, and contrast stitching. This one adds style oomph while also being incredibly body-friendly (without overwhelming your frame). Comes in white and denim.

Pilcro Boyfriend Denim Jacket

Banana Republic. A relaxed silhouette, with drop shoulders and just enough style to make it modern without crossing the line to “too youthful.” Comes in standard and petite, white and blue denim.

Joe’s Jeans. A classic choice, but with all the right elements for a roomier feel. Hip length (thank us later for that extra backside coverage) and wider through the arms and bodice.

White Jean Jackets That Are Classic with a Twist

Ok, ok. You know by now that we at Six to Sunday love to coax you to step outside of your comfort zone. So here goes: For those of you who want to venture out a bit and add a white jean jacket that offers a new, modern take, here are some options. (Psst: Just because something is current doesn’t mean it won’t be relevant for years to come.)

Retrofete. A perfect cropped jacket. Although this one’s on final sale, narrow frames, and petites take note—everything about it (including perfectly subtle distressing throughout) is lovely. Buy now.

Retrofete Knox Jacket

Nic + Zoe. A super cute, work-friendly white denim jacket, tailored with flap pockets and oversized buttons at the front. Comes in petite and standard sizes.

Nic + Zoe Top It Off Denim Jacket

Alex Mill. When it comes to denim, we have a crush on Alex Mill. Just a beautifully executed denim jacket with smart, sophisticated details that make this worth the price.

Eileen Fisher. We adore this minimalist take on the white denim jacket, and we’re mad for the loose cut (HELLO comfort).

7 For All Mankind. Many of you have asked about the bomber, and we like it when new shapes marry with classic styles. A great pick for extra wiggle room in the arms and bodice, but unlike something oversized, this will rein in any volume in the rest of your fit—say with a boyfriend shirt or loose dress underneath.

7 For All Mankind Tailored Bomber

Alexander McQueen. You all know by now sometimes we just have to throw in a completely over-the-top lust-worthy pick. This is the one we’re lusting after.
