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.
Ooh: not only is Lord & Taylor having 25% off suit separates, but the sale also includes this really, really lovely Kay Unger dot print suiting. It was recommended by reader J, who noted, “I happened upon this cute Kay Unger suit at Lord & Taylor online, and I couldn’t resist. It’s got subtle polka dots and what looks like it will be very flattering pleating. Cute and different without being too out there! Plus, there’s a matching dress, which is an option that I love. Only (admittedly big) downside is that it’s poly/rayon/spandex. I decided to give it a whirl despite the fabric content because I usually like the cut of Kay Unger.” She sent a follow-up email to note, “I’m wearing the dress/jacket today and I absolutely love it! Runs TTS, and is as flattering as I had hoped. Fabric has a nice feel to it — it’s lighter weight but not ‘thin’ — all around a good warm weather suit.” Well done! I love the cut of the jacket, as well as the dot print — if I were feeling adventurous I might try to wear it with another pattern beneath it. The jacket (KAY UNGER Dot Print Jacket) was $198, now marked to $148.50, the skirt (KAY UNGER Dot Print Pencil Skirt) was $99, now marked to $74.25, and the dress (KAY UNGER Dot Print Asymmetrical Pleat Dress, not pictured) was $198, now marked to $148.50.
