Bringing to you a practical guide to wearing all white for all the men out there by the style experts at TCC Style!
LESS IS MORE
First and foremost! Keep it simple and limited to basic features. Don’t throw in a lot of white or a lot of accessories. Stick to three elements to strike an appropriate all white impression.
SHADES OF WHITE
All white doesn’t have to be strictly white. Colour fanatics know white is deeper than just plain white. There’s off white, Snow white, Ghost white, seashell, Snow, Ivory, Floral white to experiment with. One key to wearing white on white is to separate the outfit pieces with different shades of white. If the bottoms are cream, pick a shirt or a tee tinted with stark white.
SEPARATE WITH TEXTURES
Another way to separate the whites and to avoid the ‘white wall’ demeanour, is to do so with textures now. Linen, cotton, crepe, silk; experiment with different fabrics and textures. Pair distinct textures together to have prominence in your all white look.
POPS OF COLOUR
White top to bottom doesn’t curb you back from having a colourful element in your outfit. Add the same using subtle accessories with a pop of colour. A watch, shoes, a blazer, a belt, a jacket, a scarf or a head gear can be worn to add that vibrancy to a neutral all white outfit.
Styling an all-white outfit gets considerably easier when you know what the occasion calls for. For a casual look, go for a polo neck tee with trousers or Bermuda shorts. Experiment with a white shirt and shorts or chinos. Alternatively, for a slightly upscale occasion, throw over a white blazer or a shirt, v neck tee over basic pants.
