In a world where bold prints, quirky patterns and loud colours vie for your attention, the crisp, clean brightness of white makes a refreshing and timeless statement of its own. It is pure, basic and versatile with almost every shade, transcending seasons and trends. Not surprisingly, everyone owns one if not several of these minimalistic apparels because it is so easy to pull off. Nevertheless, if you’re still slightly clueless on how to match your whites or which key pieces you should get, here’s a guide to styling 5 white essentials for men.


Ralph Lauren Standard Fit Cotton Shirt

The classic white dress shirt is important for work or formal occasions because you just can’t go wrong. Ralph Lauren’s offering is made from light cotton with French cuffs and easily morphs into a cool casual look when worn over jeans with the sleeves rolled up. Alternatively, tuck it into a pair of shorts with loafers and drape a cardigan over your shoulders for a more preppy vibe.

Paul Smith Men’s Off-White Jersey Short-Sleeve Henley Top

If you’re an easy-going person, a white Henley is a versatile top that shows you’re not trying too hard, but you care just enough. Paul Smith’s iteration features unique pearlescent shell buttons and a tab near the hem bearing their signature ‘PS by Paul Smith’. Wear it however you want or even with a jacket—this is a staple you don’t want to miss.

Calvin Klein Slim Straight Track Pant—Limited Edition Capsule

Look no further than Calvin Klein’s Limited Edition Capsule track pants for comfort and style. This pure white slim straight cut design is ideal if you wanna head to the gym or if you planning a casual day out. If you are concerned about looking too sloppy, throw on a bomber jacket.

Cerruti 1881 White Selvedge Denim Jacket

Having a strong wardrobe foundation includes a denim jacket. With ample pocket space and metal stud buttons, Cerruti pulls out all the stops in making sure their Selvedge Denim Jacket is functional and chic. Whether or not you choose to button up, wearing this certainly brings out a rugged edge, implying you do like a bit of adventure.

Armani Exchange Laced-In Minimalist Sneakers

If you’re looking for sleek and minimalist white sneakers then Armani Exchange has just the pair for you. Made from faux leather, they come with embedded laces for a streamlined profile that sharpens up any outfit you wear, and even matches nicely with certain suits to create that semi-formal glamour often spotted on celebrities gracing the red carpets. This is street vogue with a sophisticated flair.
