Hey, guys: Here's how to rock a white suit Add to ...

Rejoice, guys on the grind. The white suit is no longer just for rappers who summer in the Hamptons or fancy yacht enthusiasts. This year, the preferred hot-weather uniform for men of leisure gears up for the office. Here's how to work the blank slate. - Tiyana Grulovic

1. The No. 1 rule of wearing a white suit? It must only emerge in the spring and summer. In any other season, it feels too out of place. There is only one exception to this: You're Tom Wolfe.

2. Keep your touch light with the shirting. Opt for cool cottons or linens in pale shades paired with a like-coloured tie, as at Dolce & Gabbana. Stay away from satin and/or anything printed, bright, striped or black (unless your chosen profession is wedding singer).

3. Much like with the shirting, take it easy in the shoe department. Slip into a pair of suede lace-ups, loafers or brogues in neutral-to-light shades such as tan, beige or grey.
