The All White event! (Happy Memorial Weekend)

Memorial Weekend has now arrived, and every weekend here on out there will be a host of all white functions to attend. The most difficult part we usually face is the challenge of abiding by this theme while still trying to be creative and different from the next person.  If you have not yet had the opportunity to attend an all white event, there will always be a person who tries too hard to stand out and does so by making a complete fool of them selves.  Trust me, you want to stay within the theme while still making a statement.  Here are some useful ideas that you can play with in order to get your mind generating for your upcoming events.

Pocket Square:

If you plan to wear an all white suit, incorporate a colorful pocket square.  This will enhance your look instantly.  A sharp pocket square will look good in any color on top of an all white based background.  Remember you want to wear lighter colors, so look into pastel colors and brighter schemes.  You can never go wrong with a plaid, striped, paisley or polka dot design.  Try to stay away from solid colors, you already have on plain white and you don’t want too look basic.   



If you want go with a more subtle approach, switch up your wrist wear.  It’s time to pull out the canvas interchangeable time piece.  This is a quick and easy way to spruce up your watch because it has several different bands that you can choose from.  If you do not have this type of watch you need to invest in one this summer.  It will come in handy when you have those days you just want to wear a nice V-Neck of T-Shirt.

Footwear/ Belt:



Now let’s say you want to sport some flat front white pants with either a button down,V-Neck top or Military shirt (long or short sleeve).  The next option for you to do is to wear some color in your footwear.  Depending on the type of event, you can wear a nice colored loafer or casual sneaker (no socks).  You don’t want to go over board with this, but this is a definite way to separate you self from the rest of the other guys.  If you want to wear a belt, remember it should complement your shoes.  I would go for a cotton belt during this season, unless you are wearing leather shoes then you would have to wear that same type of style around your waist. 

Hopefully these tips will be beneficial to you while you’re brainstorming the perfect outfit. Have a blessed weekend, be safe and enjoy!
