Summerizing the Suit
With neutrals, you can mix freely—there's no such thing as clashing shades. This elegant medley sets the tone for shopping, as in Buenos Aires's open-air markets.
Pick a suit with enough authority for work, but in a casual shade—something in the tan family—that's perfect weekend material. This one has a jacket with interesting tucks that carve out the waist, plus clean, straight-leg pants (Lida Baday, $1,150 and $695); the color is richer and creamier than plain old beige, and it's beautiful with a chiffon-trim T-shirt (J.Crew, $38), ruffled khaki bag (Be & D), and bone-and-gold shoes (Christian Louboutin). The point: Wearing the new neutrals as an entire outfit looks fresher than mixing separates with black or white. A geode necklace (Wendy Mink Jewelry) and delicate ring (Misa Jewelry) add metal to the mix. Photographed at Los Angeles boutique in Pasaje de la Defensa.
