How to Wear White: For Work

Sure, a crisp white dress shirt is a staple in most gent’s work wardrobes, but this season white can be so much more. White, off-white, pale shades of stone, and the palest shades of glacier grey are all shades of white that are office right, when paired with the right coordinating pieces. And that’s what we’re showing you today. Whether you work in a conservative environment or a creative one, we’ve got our top outfits to bring that powerful look of dapper white pieces to your work wardrobe.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow for some great white combinations for a night out and Thursday for our favorite white outfits for a casual day. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Outfit: White with Color Pop. For many of us, the office has become a more casual environment, especially in the summer. Even if it’s just on Fridays, a great way to finish a work look this season is with a white cotton sweater. When it’s hot out, it’s usually cool inside and Peter Millar’s classic fit effortlessly layers over a sport shirt for that professional finishing touch. High quality yarns help keep a white cotton sweater looking its best, and this one won’t disappoint.

Adding a pop of color in your shirt or pants (or both) with the featured white sweater in this outfit makes for an ideal casual office look. And this Vineyard Vines’ pink check shirt is just the pop of summery color we’re talking about. The classic fit mirrors the sweater, so it will lie smoothly under the sweater – and look just as good on its own. It also comes in blue or purple through the ‘shop it’ button, if you’re just not a pink gent – but try it, you’ll become one quickly with this shirt.

These Tommy Bahama flat front cotton chinos are a perfect shade of summery blue that pulls out the touch of pink in the shirt and offsets the crisp white of the sweater in this outfit. It’s brighter than a typical navy, but still neutral and easy. The fit is Tommy Bahama’s updated fit – classic, with a slightly lower rise and modern, updated look.

With the pops of color in this outfit, keep the shoes neutral. Cole Haan’s plain toe oxfords in tan “milkshake” suede create a colorless feel that will give you endless options to wear them with everything in your wardrobe – especially this look. And they are polished enough to work for the office, a casual night out or with jeans on the weekend.

We always like to remind you to include a belt. This bison leather belt from Trask has great casual detail in the stitched edging and leather trim on the buckle. The tan color is a great warm weather alternative to brown and coordinates perfectly with the shoes in this outfit for the ideal finish.

Outfit: White with Neutrals. Of course, when we’re talking about white for the workplace, we’re going to talk about the white shirt. There are endless options out there, we know, and today our pick is from J.Crew. The cotton and linen mix in the fabrication is the winning factor. Not only will it keep you cool and comfortable in the warm days of summer, the blend allows you to dress it up with a cotton suit or sport coat while still having enough textural interest to wear on its own with any cotton pants. The cut is J.Crew’s Ludlow fit, which is a bit trimmer and more contemporary, giving it a great updated look.

Pairing the white shirt in this outfit with neutral cotton pants is an easy, and always appropriate, look for a casual day at the office. Bonobos always delivers on this front, since the line was initially based on just pants. Their 3 fits are great, and the quality for the price can’t be beat. ‘Tailored’ is the trimmest fit, ‘Straight’ is the standard fit with a straight leg and ‘Slim’ sits comfortably in the middle - we suggest ‘Straight’ for the modern gent, and ‘Slim’ for the contemporary gent. The summer weight washed chino fabric looks really fresh in this new shade of grey - a great update to a basic tan that has a lot more style, with the same amount of versatility.

When creating a stylishly simple look, as we are with this white button down and grey pants, choosing a belt takes on added importance. The navy cotton webbing and leather trim of this J.Crew belt add just the right amount of neutral interest. And we love the price – completely appropriate for a cotton web belt, and you won’t be skimping on style or quality.

We couldn’t help but add these grey and white striped socks to complete this outfit for a little pop and personality. These Polo Ralph Lauren socks are sold in a two pack, so you get the striped pair along with a solid grey. They both work with tan, brown or black shoes, so they are sure to become leaders in your sock rotation.
