11 White Denim Pieces For Your Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Designed by Dionne Pajarillaga.
Don't get us wrong: we love every kind of denim under the sun. Black jeans? So wearable and timeless. Cargo trousers? We're fully on board with the Y2K comeback. And there is always room in our wardrobe for cheery denim pieces in every shade of the rainbow. 
White denim in particular occupies a very special place in our heart. It's the ultimate transitional piece, ideal if you're building a capsule wardrobe. It looks equally great with warm weather clothes and with a cosy jumper, and is a failsafe for spring and summer when the British weather inevitably decides to make a U-turn. White denim is the kind of functional neutral that adds a pop to your look without doing too much, and works easily with different colours, prints and textures. It's our secret weapon for pulling off a double denim outfit without looking too matchy-matchy.
Ahead, we've pulled out our favourite white denim pieces – from straight-leg silhouettes to split-front skirts – that we'll be reaching for all summer (and beyond).
