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.
OK. This set is pretty far outside my comfort zone as far as suits go, at least for most younger women. But that said: I think the two pieces, individually, would get a lot of use — when I first saw the set over at Neiman Marcus I was kind of shocked that it was a $330 suit instead of an $800 suit. Then, while browsing around Lord & Taylor, I realized that not only can you buy the pieces separately (if you only like one of them, or if you want different sizes), but the set is eligible for the Friends & Family sale going on. So with the 25% discount: The jacket (Kay Unger Tweed 3-Button Jacket) comes from $220 down to $165, and skirt (Kay Unger Tweed Pencil Skirt) comes from $100 to $75. (The long-sleeved matching dress, not pictured, is quite nice as well — was $190, now $142.)
