The fash pack love a tricky trend. From peplums to pool sliders, for the last few years the catwalks have prompted more debate than the average episode of Newsnight, and this season is set to be no exception. Top of the list? The ever divisive white denim.

Yes, thanks to French label-of-the-moment Vetements, jeans are having a huge fashion moment, and when it comes to summer, our mantra is "the brighter the better". The good news is, style it right and this is one look you can totally pull off (without looking like a mid-'90s Liz Hurley).

Need a cheat sheet? We've partnered with Tu and scoured the streets to find our favourite ways to work white denim. Get your inspo below, then shop the pieces you'll need straight from the gallery. Ketchup not recommended.

Rip it up

Forget everything your mum told you about looking after your clothes. This season, we're grabbing the scissors. Frays, rips and distressed patches have made the transition from runway to real life, providing the perfect way to bring last year's white skinnies into 2016.

Make like a street style star and pair a raw hem with your favourite trainers, or opt for a strappy sandal on those warm nights.

Colour it in

Tu Denim

It's no secret that minimal dressing has become a bit of a fashion "thing" over the last few years, but that doesn't mean you should be scared to add a little bit of colour.

White denim provides the perfect canvas for a bold jacket or accessory, and keeps the overall look feeling ultra modern. Our pick for summer? A statement sunnie, natch.

The overall picture

Dungarees, overalls... whatever you call them, you can barely move (or er, scroll) on your favourite blogs for a perfectly styled pair of the throw-on-and-go faves.

We've all tried classic blue, so consider white your summer upgrade. Whether dress or trousers, layer over a neutral tee or simple stripe for maximum impact and watch your follower count shoot up.

Layer, lady, layer

Fashion Mantra #1: If in doubt, accessorise (and, if still in doubt, just take notes from the eternally cool Leandra Medine).

Whilst – we hear you – the braces might not work for everyone, the Man Repeller founder's layered accessory look brings boho detailing bang up to date. Try pairing an embellished bag or a tassel necklace with straight leg white denim for an everyday way to try the trend.
