Even before you get to the question of red wine and barbecue sauce, white jeans can be a treacherous proposition. If the denim is too thin, they're bound to be see-through; too thick, and they're going to be relegated to the back of your drawer all summer (which, odds are, is exactly when you want to be wearing them).

But given how many of them we start seeing peppering our Instagram feed, there must be a Goldilocks-style solution to finding a pair that's just right. And while you could go out and try on a few dozen pairs under unforgiving dressing room fluorescents, we're partial to the alternative: going off the wisdom and experience of shoppers who have already taken them for a test-drive.

In the interest of tracking down the best crisp white jeans to pair with your striped tops and go-to denim jacket, we trawled the reviews of retailers like Madewell and Shopbop to find the best-rated styles. Read on to shop them all.
