There’s no ignoring it: white denim has really made its mark in menswear of late. A couple years ago the thought of climbing into a pair of white jeans would have inspired fear, but the right pair worn tastefully sidesteps garish European cliché for a look that’s altogether fresh and impactful.
Part of the success of the white jean is its versatile nature: depending on what it’s worn with, it can award serious style credentials to myriad looks, from the business-casual office to Friday-night drinks to date night. Think of them as a blank canvas that can open up your whole wardrobe. Plus, unlike dark denim which absorbs light and heat, white denim has the opposite effect, making them a warm-weather essential come the beginnings of spring.
