There is something so timelessly elegant about the white suit.

Bianca Jagger in the '70s turned this into an iconic style that continues to be relevant - and utterly stylish - today.  Paired with high heels and floppy hat, the look still projects confident elegance.

This is such a timeless Style that varies little from year to year.  Chaiken's version from their Spring 2008 collection looks just as chic today.  Even Tom Ford revived Jagger's YSL white pants suit in his collection while he was at YSL.  If you already have one in your closet from the last decade, you can use it again!

Key things to remember with this look:

  • Make sure the jacket is tailored perfectly on you.  Ill-fitting creases or boxiness can make it look frumpy.
  • Straight or even wide-legged trousers give it the most elegant drape.  If the pants are cut tight, the look is on the trendy side and may not be as flattering.
  • Bianca Jagger can get away with a bowler hat topping her pants suit (her airport look).  For the rest of us, a floppier hat exudes more glamor!
