A friend recently asked my opinion on a white/ecru jacket. My advice was tough, at best. I bought this white denim jacket last spring, and held on to it for this spring – not entirely sure if I would ever wear it again. White denim jackets (or white jackets in any textile for that matter) are a tough one – white jackets tend to be stark, and stand out. I don’t wear it nearly as often as my faded, blue-denim jacket, but when I do wear it – I love it enough to remind myself to never let it go.
If you do buy yourself a white or ecru jacket (or an ivory tuxedo jacket,) it might not get the most WPD (wear-per-dollar) but it can survive the thinning of the herd closet that hits every spring (i.e., spring cleaning!)
