Just like florals for spring aren't groundbreaking, wearing white in the summer isn't necessarily unexpected. But that's not to say it can't be modern and chic.

Case in point: the ensemble Jessica Alba wore the other day for a screening of L.A.'s Finest at The Wing in SoHo.

The key to keeping warm-weather white fresh? Instead of rocking white jeans or a floaty white sundress, stick to ivory accessories. Alba, for example, paired an army green suit with a structured top-handle bag and pointy-toe pumps, both in crisp white.

If you'll remember, we called out stark white shoes a few months ago as being one of the easiest ways to make your outfit look super expensive. A pointy-toe pump, especially, is totally elegant and makes your legs look longer. 

Now, if you'll excuse us, we'll be recreating this look immediately. Thanks for the inpso, Jess.

Get the look: Schutz pumps ($155); Botkier New York bag ($248); Prada pumps ($675)
