Why do ghost's always wear white?

I mean, In most cultures and stories narrated around the world, It can be noticed that a ghost or a spirit will wear mostly white clothes. Sometimes its said that they are invisible or cant be seen to the naked eye. But most of the times people have said to have seen a "ghost" wearing a white cloth or a dress. Is it some kind of a tradition or something? Why only white? Why not some other color?

    That's weird. But why white? Many old folk tales have this white ghost and stuff. You know.
