Which would look best?

I am currently in possession of 2 pairs Boden white jeans, one pair has to go.....

It's for a semi-smart "do" next week.....will be wearing navy loafers and a navy <whispers> tunic from Phase Eight (which is bloody gorgeous I tell ya)

One pair of jeans is "crop" so sits about 4-5 inches above my ankle. The other is not, so sits on my ankle. Somehow, to me, the second pair don't look quite right.

But I need not to commit a huge faux pas......Is there a rule?

wear the ones that suit your bodu shape best. regardless of anything else you will feel more relaxed in them.

Can you roll the longer pair up, so they are cropped?
Then you get 2 looks out of one pair.

If not, keep the crop pair, you'll wear them lots over the Summer.

Keep both - if its warm and sunny wear the cropped jeans and if not, wear the other pair.

Do you have some pics? I like the sound of the look, it sounds mod-inspired.

I like the sound of the cropped pair, they always strike me as a tad more sleek and look fabulous with heels. I love the sound of the rest of the outfit, too. Navy and white is so crisp and chic!

Thank you! I think, on reflection and dangling off bed to see self in mirror that the cropped pair def look more chic. The other pair are fine, it's just the sitting on ankle bit...

Now, where's my St Tropez to brown my feet.....

This is the top. It's fab. The finest finest wool, and just what I was after.

Have never even looked at phase eight before, and though some of the stuff is minging, some of it is very nice!
