Have you ever considered wearing an all-white look? Are you worried it will come across as boring or unimaginative? Or worse, that you’ll look like you’re wearing a uniform or like you’re out of place?
You can’t go wrong in all white.
Thanks to an uptick in the all-white party trend, men have more ability than ever to pull off stylish, trendy all-white looks.
For casual everyday looks, you have options! No need to take the obvious route here. For years, men have turned to the white linen button-front shirts and breezy pants for that summertime casual look. You can go ahead and wear your linen outfit or you can have some fun with your look!
Try a fitted white polo shirt or white t-shirt paired with white jeans, chinos or a soft trouser. Top your look off with a casual white jacket in cooler temps. If you are attending a beach or pool party, go for a pristine tee with shorts or cropped pants. Have fun with your shoes! A new pair of gleaming white sneakers or boat shoes will complete your look.
Are you attending the hottest party of the year? A friend’s birthday bash or a summertime VIP affair? The key here is to know your audience, be bold and confident, and keep the individual garments simple and without fuss.
For events that are a bit less formal, try a slim tailored suit in white cotton, seersucker or linen. It should be perfectly tailored to your body; the shoulders need to fit properly, sleeve lengths hitting correctly, and it should always button comfortably. Pair your suit with a crisp v-neck tee and a pair of white leather loafers. You can also go with a traditional blazer in white, over a shirt, with well-fitting white jeans.
Want to skip the jacket while still looking polished? Try a white shirt paired with white trousers, white loafers and a silk tie or bow-tie.
For more formal events you can go all out in a white tuxedo. Your tux should be a soft white and should be paired with a formal white tuxedo shirt, white bow-tie, cufflinks and white pocket square. Shoes should be spotless and not too shiny. When properly donned, a white tuxedo demonstrates sophistication and power.
Be bold, be brave and try an all-white look for your next event.
