I am still in Asia but realized that summer break in the Northern Hemisphere is nearly over.  If you believe the old adage "Never wear white after Labor Day", it's time to make the most of your whites.

Remember the elegant, white pants suit (see Summer Pants Suit)?  Let's see how we can transport this look from elegant to casually stylish.  You can sport it in an everyday setting using pieces from your closet.  It can be as easy as mixing the top and bottom (unmatched suit) to make the look  more casual.

For casual environments, or for a chilly summer evening, try this combination reminiscent of Amelia Earheart.  A white tank top and white jeans are a great base:

Buttery leather jacket, white jeans, gauzy scarf and heels


The following looks can go from work to a night out depending on your office dress code.

Jacket with silk ruffles tops white slacks
Jacket has slimming pleat details; denim wedges with suede bow add fun

There are so many combinations you can pull from your own closet.  Remember how much fun paper dolls were to dress up?  Do the same with your own wardrobe!
