Reese Witherspoon has shared a holiday snap in an all-white ensemble that has us looking ahead to summer dressing. The actor shared a dreamy snap of herself looking at the sunset, on what looks like a private yacht - and her outfit is stunning in its simplicity.

In one of the best white jeans outfits we've seen this year, Reese teamed some flattering bootcut jeans with a neutral knit for the occasion, showing that sometimes the most simple outfits are the most striking. 'Don’t worry about a thing... except going overboard!' she captioned the sticking set of images, taken just as the sun was setting, which show the actor beaming at the camera before looking into the horizon. 

Fans were quick to express their approval of how Reese has mastered wearing classic white jeans, with one writing, "Dear Reese I’ve been looking for good white jeans please tell me where you got these." While another said, "I love a white bootcut jean. Mine are terra cotta by 3:15PM." And a third wrote, "You look as beautiful as the skyline."
