How to Wear White: For Any Casual Day

Every gent has a white t-shirt, and this is the season to broaden your white apparel horizons. It has a casual appeal that also just exudes an offhanded confidence – at least it did for Fonzy. White polos, shorts, and even hats go from staples to fashion essentials this season. This week, we’ve been putting together outfits – pairing white with pops of colors and sophisticated neutrals – so we’re going to wrap it up with 2 casual outfits that will take you from the golf course to any day where you’ll get to enjoy a little down time.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed out on work outfits or after 5 outfits incorporating our top white picks of the season, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

Outfit: White with Neutrals. You may already know that French tennis player, Renee Lacoste, designed the first polo shirt in the 1920’s. And the style has clearly become a staple of a gent’s wardrobe ever since. White, far and away, is the most popular and useful color to make sure you always have in rotation. In addition to Lacoste’s classic, today we’re featuring Psycho Bunny’s version for an updated, contemporary take on this essential must-have. It’s also made of an airy, high quality cotton pique, ideal for any warm day, but the more contemporary fit and conversation-starting logo bunny just speak for themselves. The white color option is the base to any outfit, coordinating with any shorts, jeans, or even swim trunks in your closet. (And when you click through the ‘shop it’ button you’ll see there are a few other great options, too.)

J.Crew - 10.5
We are happy to report that the longer Bermuda length short is a trend this season. And so is seersucker. So whether you have a more timeless aesthetic or a more updated take, you’ll love these blue and white striped seersucker shorts from J.Crew. While seersucker is an iconic summer fabric since it’s light and breathable, J.Crew’s modern fit and stylish Bermuda length give these shorts an updated look, especially when paired with the featured white polo in this outfit.

We lean towards sneakers and flip flop over sandals most weekend days, and these Tretorn sneakers feel just right for this easygoing outfit. Just like the polo and Bermuda shorts in this look, these canvas sneakers are fashionably current – partly because of their classic roots. They are inspired by the design of a 1930’s tournament shoe. But Tretorn uses modern technology to provide more comfort with a padded EcoOrthoLite, so you’ll happily walk around in them all day long.

UNIQLO - Men Sweat Full-zip Long Sleeve Hoodie
We love jeans because they are neutrals that go with everything. So when we found this denim blue zip front hoodie from the fast-fashion brand, UNIQLO, we knew it would become a go-to item in your closet this season. There is absolutely no denying that the quality far exceeds expectations based on the price – the fabric feels good, and the sweatshirt even has little details like a double zipper and dyed to match drawstring. The fit is contemporary so size up if in doubt. We love how it looks layered over this crisp white polo and seersucker shorts in this outfit. It gives that finishing touch of fashionable “normcore” sensibility (a word the fashion powers-that-be created to accentuate the current importance of basics in our wardrobes). At the end of the day though, it’s just downright practical once the sun goes down or you head indoors. Just like any pair of jeans, it goes with everything, not just this neutral outfit.

Finish this outfit’s updated nod to the best of men’s iconic casual styles with this reproduction of a vintage baseball hat. Most gents can never have too many baseball hats, a staple for any day, especially when the sun is shining. J.Crew partnered with Ebbets Field Flannels® on this one, and it sure is good-looking. The navy “N “ is from the Nashville Vols, a champion minor league baseball team in the 1940’s. So now you’ve got a little inside information to talk about while you’re looking stylish at the same time.

Outfit: White with Color Pop. White is not only for the tennis courts, it is a trending color for the golf course, too. And we know a lot of gents who spend their downtime out on the links as soon as the weather warms up. Nike Golf’s Dri-FIT shorts will keep you cool and comfortable for the full 18, with its technical fabric that wicks perspiration and keeps you feeling dry. When your game is over, the modern fit will ensure you’re still looking good while you run errands and grab lunch.

BOSS Green  - Prek Pro Polygiene Stay Fresh Polo Shirt
From BOSS Green (Hugo Boss’s sports line), this modern fitting polo looks great with the crisp white shorts in this outfit - the stylish geo pattern really pops. And just like everything in the Hugo Boss line, the quality is top notch. This polo is made of Polgiene Stay Fresh technology, which is Hugo Boss’s fancy way of saying that your shirt will maintain a just-out-of-the-wash feeling all day long, so you’ll still feel fresh after a full day of golf. Add that to how great looking this shirt is, and you can’t go wrong.

As we say, a belt is a must – on or off the course. This navy cotton web style from Martin Dingman is an ideal choice for a day of golf. Not only is the cotton way more comfortable than leather when you are on the course, webbed belt styles are very on trend for casual belts this season. So, you’ll look great without sacrificing any comfort.
