White is a staple colour and should form the foundation of your wardrobe, especially during the summer season.
Think of it as a base colour to start building your looks from a white tee, to white trainers. The optic colour can complement any colour choice and should be a go-to colour choice when you can’t decide on what to wear.
Here are is my guide on how to wear white:
1. THE WHITE TEE
The white t-shirt will always have your back when you are struggling to put a look together. It has endless versatility and can be worn in almost any look.
You can wear it with a suit by simply replacing your shirt.
Style it with denim for a casual off-duty look.
Wear with chinos or tailored trousers.
Your wardrobe should feature at least three white t-shirts to allow you to create multiple style attitudes.
2. THE WHITE SOCK
White socks are a style staple for any streetwear addict, creating a sporty aesthetic to your outfit. To show off your socks roll up the hem of your trousers.
3. THE WHITE TROUSER
I’ve never had the confidence to wear white trousers. It could be down to the fact that I always spill sauce down my leg or because I don’t want to look like I’m attending a white party. Either way, I choose to wear white trousers when I am on holiday.
Think of white trousers as a blank canvas waiting for you to paint on your favourite colours. I love pairing white denim with neutral tones like camel and beige to recreate a safari palette.
For a smart casual look, switch to white tailored trousers.
4. WHITE TRAINERS
There is nothing quite like wearing a fresh pair of white trainers. The hard part is keeping them white!
I consider white lace-ups as a wardrobe essential. They can be worn in a casual or formal look and have a way of adding a modern sophistication to your look.
White chunky sole sneakers are for guys who want the trendy option. Wear with white socks to create the full experience.
To complete the look, match your white footwear with a basic white tee.
5. WHITE OUTERWEAR
Wearing a white jacket is a perfect way to brighten up your look.
For the spring-summer season, wear a denim jacket or an overshirt.
6. THE WHITE SHIRT
Summer days in the office are no fun, so break the rules by ditching the tie and releasing a few buttons. Style with tailored trousers and white sneakers for a contemporary office look. Who knew a white work shirt could look this cool.
For a more casual feel, ditch the blazer and collar by wearing a grandad shirt. Pair with chinos or tailored trousers.
The resort shirt should have a permanent fixture in your holiday wardrobe, but can also thrive in the city.
Wear with any trousers, from chinos to swim-shorts. The shirt was made for the summer.
