A denim jacket is an important part of any man's outerwear arsenal, especially at a time of year when things are slowly but surely starting to warm up. But a white denim jacket is a surefire way let everyone around you know that you're a deeply stylish individual who's found a pragmatic way to beat the chill.
Kanye West was spotted doing just that in Paris on Tuesday, where he's been attending the fall 2016 collections for houses like Balmain and Givenchy. West wore an oversized Levi's trucker jacket made from a denim so bleached, it's practically the color of freshly fallen snow. But a pure white denim jacket will function the same way West's does here: it's a useful layer on top of everything from sweatshirts to t-shirts, and pairs best with dark jeans that'll give it some contrast.
But the biggest impact you can make with a jacket like this is not treating it like it's too precious: it'll look just as good when it's worn in bit as its darker-dyed cousins.
