Shelly Vella: Yes, you can wear white jeans with anything

With spring in the air, now’s the time to switch up your classic blue jeans for a fresh white pair. They tick all the comfort boxes but bring a little sophistication and smartness to a wardrobe staple. A cropped length looks very French with a flash of ankle, while a wide leg can be dressed up with heels for work or play.

Try off-duty chic

A wider-cut cropped leg is a great way to flatter your ankles. White jeans and Breton tops make for the perfect partnership: chic with an ankle boot and on point with a deck shoe.

For workwear clout, try sleek-fit jeans, blouse and blazer. Try wearing your jeans too long –
straight-legged denim looks great with slight ruching at the hem. add a chunky knit to slim legs.
