Let's face it, workwear has a tendency to be pretty blah. The easiest way to switch it up? Try a new colour combo – and pale hues are where it's at. Here are three ways to wear white:

1 Swap a black biker jacket for white. Leave your black biker for the weekend. A crisp white version looks slick for work, especially with a shirt collar poking out from underneath (pictured left).

2 Give white pinstripe trousers a whirl: A black peg trouser is standard workwear uniform. Introduce a white pair with a navy pinstripe and they become a whole lot more interesting (middle).

3 Wear a white suit (yes really): A classic-cut dark suit is undeniably a staple. But if you mix up the proportions – think looser, longer lengths – and try a white or light version, you'll still look professional… and not to mention cool as (right).
