Trade in pinstripe wool for a cotton trouser in bright white. Opt for a wide-leg and a high-waist to make this roomy style appear sleek instead of slouchy. A navy silk blouse is a nod to the nautical without looking seaworthy, and a silk stripe bag and pointed-toe pumps elevate this daytime look. Bonus: when worn with heels, high-waist wide-leg pants give the illusion of longer legs.
