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.

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

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.
