The unofficial, old-school fashion rule dictates that white should only be worn between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Be that as it may, we love to wear the crisp neutral year-round, but we're the first to admit that pulling off head-to-toe white can be a challenge. But with a little effort and ingenuity, we've uncovered fresh ways to approach this monochromatic (not to mention, incredibly refreshing) look. From tailored suit separates to matching sets, shop our three looks, below.

Why it works: The oversized blazer styled with slim-fit pairings won't give you that '80s boxy figure like a typical pantsuit would.
