The Suit

San Diego Hat Co. Fedora
Even in modern times, a black hat brims with charm. This one is woven paper, so it’s a no-sweat option for warm weather.

To buy: $48,

Mango Jacket, Pants, and Belt
Break up a white linen suit with a tan leather belt and black heels to curb the Tom Wolfe effect.

To buy: Jacket, $85; pants, $40; belt, $50, (available next month).

Kate Hill Top
Layering a black stretch-polyester tank under white looks more luxe than the typical black-suit-with-white-shirt combination.

To buy: $40, (available next month).


How fun: The lizard-embossed leather band goes on like a slap bracelet.

To buy: $60,

Jones New York Bracelet
Gold-tone filigree that’s secretly stretchy.

To buy: Macy’s, $40, 800-289-6229.

Nine West Heels
Hold steady in these patent-leather platforms with sturdy block heels.
