Stylist: Charlie Harrington. Photographer: Tony Buckingham
1Jigsaw Menswear drawstring parka, pounds 97. Something for Liam Gallagher fans. A waterproof parka small enough to be stuffed into a pocket. Jigsaw Menswear, 9-10 Floral Street, London WC2; 22 Market Street, Cambridge; 61 Buchanan Street, Glasgow and branches nationwide. Stockist enquiries, 0171-240 5651.

2 French Connection jeans, pounds 48. White jeans are probably the most sensible option for white trousers. They will endure beyond the fads of different trouser cuts. From branches of French Connection nationwide. Stockist enquiries, 0171-580 2507.

3 Armand Basi towelling top, pounds 60. This round-necked, long-sleeved top is extremely comfortable, though, those not accustomed to today's outlandish fabrics may find the idea of wearing something resembling a nappy a bit bizarre. From Armand Basi, 12 Floral Street, London WC2; Wardrobe, Deansgate, Manchester and Nichols, Great Western Arcade, Birmingham. Stockist enquiries, 0171-278 4843.

4 Sally Gissing belt, pounds 49. Crocodile-print white patent belt with a silver buckle. For smoothies eager to slip into that head-to-toe white, Seventies-style suit. From Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London SW1. Stockist enquiries, 0171-267 9303.

5 Calvin Klein pants, pounds 17.95. These now classic boxer shorts are featured mainly as a warning to men: if you're going to wear white, worry about the shade of your underwear. Women have to every day. From Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London SW1 and branches of House of Fraser nationwide.

6 Jones the Bootmaker white flat-fronted loafers, pounds 69.99. A clean, neat look, that is a refreshing break from built-up soles and flashy logos. Jones the Bootmaker nationwide. Stockist enquiries, 01323 649408.
