Once in a while, some of us get bored of all the dark-colored suits everyone seems to be wearing. Because of that, we think to ourselves, "I should wear a white suit." And why not?
White suits are just as stylish and classical as their black counterparts. They can be worn on any occasion and is sure to leave an impression.
However, there are a few tips that you have to follow when it comes to wearing white suits.
1. Wear the Right Shoes
Most white suit wearers assume that white shoes are the way to go. They may think like this due to people wearing black shoes when wearing black suits. Unfortunately, a white pair of shoes does not go well with a white outfit.
White shoes will make it look like you're wearing a tall boot (and not one that looks nice either). Because of that, rather than pairing your white suit with white shoes, wear something that contrasts the color. Use dark colors instead, like a pair of all-black leather shoes. If you want to add a little more color, brown can go just as well too. In essence, shoes that go well with black suits go well with whites.
2. Press the White Suit
Unlike their darker counterparts, white suits tend to show wrinkles and creases much more obviously. The last thing you want to happen is to sport your white suit in a special event, only to find out you look pieces of paper stacked on top of each other.
To keep you well away from such an embarrassing moment, check your suit's care label and iron away if allowed. If it doesn't allow any form of pressing, then the next best thing you can do is to take your white suit to dry cleaners. Of course, you'll be spending some cash using the dry-cleaning route, but it is money well spent.
3. Avoid a White Shirt
Just like how you should avoid wearing white shoes, you should also avoid wearing a white shirt under the suit. Doing so will make everything look blended into one piece, and nothing about that is aesthetically pleasing. Because of that, wear a dark color instead of a shirt. If you want to keep a simple theme, wear a dark color that matches your dark-colored shoes. It will create a bold look that will impress anyone.
4. Keep an Eye Out for Stains
As with all white garments, stains are just a regular ordeal. A white background will easily show stains much more obviously than any other colors will (of course, the only exception to this is if the stain is the same color).
With that in mind, before you wear your white suit, check it thoroughly for stains. And when you're out and about, avoid putting yourself into situations that put your outfit at risk of staining. It is also a good idea to bring some wet-wipes or any other stain-removal solution in case you would need it.
By taking the precautions we've listed out for you, you can be confident that the next time you whip out your white suit, you will look terrific.
