A familiar white button-down and black jersey pencil skirt are reinvented through small tweaks: the shirt's hidden buttons, Mandarin collar and bib front; the skirt's diagonal stitching. A slender patent leather belt adds a jolt of color and highlights the narrowest part of the body; skin-tone leather pumps fade away, visually lengthening the legs.
