Hello, GlamFam! Are you looking for that perfect on-the-go outfit that you can always count on to be casual AND chic? Well today, Chic at Every Age is here to help because we’re sharing tips on how to style a white shirt and jeans as the perfect go-to casual outfit. After all, when it comes to fashion, there’s nothing quite as timeless as a white button-up shirt and a pair of jeans. It’s a classic look that’s been around for decades, and it’s easy to see why. It’s comfortable, versatile, and easy to wear. But just because it’s a classic look doesn’t mean it has to be boring. So, here are some tips for wearing a white button-up shirt and jeans in a chic way!

1. Choose the right fit

The first step to looking chic in a white button-up shirt and jeans is to make sure that both pieces fit you well. A baggy or ill-fitting shirt can make you look sloppy, while jeans that are too tight or too loose can be unflattering. Choose a shirt that fits snugly but not too tight, and pair it with jeans that fit well around the waist and hips. If you’re unsure about sizing, don’t be afraid to try on a few different sizes until you find the perfect fit.
PRO TIP: For online orders, purchase two sizes and return the one that doesn’t fit. Be sure to check return policies beforehand. 

2. Accessorize

Adding some accessories is one of the easiest ways to dress up a white button-up shirt and jeans. A statement necklace, a pair of earrings, or a stylish belt can all help to elevate your look. Try layering a few necklaces for a chic, bohemian vibe, or add a pop of color with a bright belt.
I layered gold accessories for a classic look. The two necklaces create a stacked effect. 

3. Choose the right shoes

The right shoes can make all the difference when it comes to pulling off a chic white button-up shirt and jeans look. For a casual daytime look, try pairing your outfit with a pair of sneakers or flats. If you’re going for a dressier look, opt for heels or ankle boots. 
Another PRO TIP: Pointy shoes can add an elongating effect. 

4. Experiment with different styles

Just because you’re wearing a classic white button-up shirt and jeans doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with different styles. Try tucking your shirt in and adding a statement belt, or wearing your shirt half untucked with a pair of high-waisted jeans. You could also try rolling up your sleeves for a more relaxed look or wearing your shirt open over a camisole, tank top, or turtleneck.

5. Pay attention to details

Finally, to really pull off a chic white button-up shirt and jeans look, it’s important to pay attention to the details. Make sure your shirt is pressed and free of wrinkles. You can choose whether your jeans are free of rips/ tears or have distressing. Pay attention to the color and material of your shirt – a crisp white cotton shirt will look more polished than a wrinkled, sheer shirt.
Wearing a white button-up shirt and jeans is a classic look that never goes out of style. By following these tips, you can take this timeless look and make it your own, adding your own personal touch to create a chic, stylish outfit that’s perfect for any occasion!


The shirt I’m styling today is the Big Boy Boyfriend Shirt by Finley! I absolutely love this simple yet stylish top. The oversized fit, drop shoulders and long roll-tab sleeves all combine to give this shirt the perfect relaxed and carefree vibe. Plus, I love the addition of the asymmetric flap pocket to give that little something extra. Now, for the jeans I chose a super cute pair from Walmart (sold out but you can find a similar pair here) that are extremely chic and easy on the wallet too! I love the 90’s inspired style of these jeans and the wide-leg design perfectly matches the casual style of the top. Pair that with the distressed denim and chic high waist (which is perfect for tucking in your white shirt of choice) and you’ve got the ideal jeans for your casual everyday outfit!

The best thing about the white shirt and jeans outfit is that it is super easy to style! I styled mine with a classic taupe Chanel bag, chic Gucci heels, and my favorite pair of sunglasses.  Then for jewelry, I glammed it up with some layered gold necklaces and of course, some Budha Girl bangles! This outfit is definitely one of my “go-to” favorites and best of all, it can be styled for any season. In the winter just toss on a cute jacket and voila! You’ll be cozy warm and super stylish too.


THE STYLE Rx: Go with the classic white shirt and jeans combo for the perfect everyday outfit that is super easy to dress up or down!


Now let’s take a look at the girl’s outfits!

Heather is wearing a beautiful and billowy blouse style top with wide sleeves and a tie waist which looks fabulous on her. She paired her top with a pair of light-wash jeans with a high waist and a split hem(which I love and have blogged about before)! She styled her classic outfit with a shimmering gold Chanel crossbody bag and matching gold peep-toe heels. Finally, for jewelry, she continued the beautiful gold theme with some stunning layered gold necklaces, stacked rings, and a gorgeous gold watch to top it off!

Next, Cathy chose a classic white button-up collared shirt and a cute pair of high-waisted jeans that also have a split hem (love it!). She added a quilted black shoulder bag, some amazing Christian Dior slides, and a black belt which not only matches her bag perfectly but also ties the whole outfit together! Then, for accessories, she added some elegant bangles including a chic watch, some layered necklaces, and some classic sunglasses. I love her choice of dark accessories for this look as it contrasts perfectly with the white shirt while also elevating the overall look!

Finally, Natalie also chose a simple white button-up collared shirt and she paired it with some light-wash ripped denim jeans which are super casual and chic! But she also added a lovely tan blazer which is the perfect example of how you can style a white shirt and jeans for the office!  She styled this cute outfit with a woven white tote bag and a pair of clear-strap sandals for a sleek touch. Then, to complete the outfit, she accessorized with gold earrings, cute gold bracelets, layered gold necklaces, and some super cute sunglasses!

Happy Friday GlamFam! Hope you’ve had a fabulous week! This blog post was meant to be published awhile ago, but better late than never. I always love great basic pieces. This week, I’m not sure what happened again but some GI stuff knocked me out for a day. It’s been going on this whole year and I have an endoscopy coming up in October. I’m trying to give myself grace and remember to not be too hard on myself when everything doesn’t get done. Anyhow, my brother’s wedding shower is this weekend, and I’m SO EXCITED!! 

What are you up to this weekend?
