For busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.
Pendleton always comes up in discussions about great basic suiting with readers and so, dutifully, I check the website frequently to see if there’s a potential Suit of the Week in there. To be honest, to this point I haven’t been too impressed — but not this week. Love the ’40s vibe to this jacket with peplum front and sides. It reminds me of something Rosalind Russell or Katharine Hepburn would wear, and as such if I got this suit I’d make sure it was tailored to a tee. It’s available in a gray charcoal (pictured at top) and a “midnight navy” (pictured below), and comes in misses, petites, and plus. The jacket (Fine Line West End Jacket) is $258, and the skirt (Fine Line Madison Skirt) is $128. Other pieces in the collection (including two more jackets, two pairs of pants, and two dresses) range from $63 to $268.
