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.
I’m intrigued by this wool blend jacket — that shirttail hem is pretty unusual, as is the fact that you can wear it belted or unbelted. Still, it’s getting tons of positive reviews from ladies who bought it in the stores — and I love that light brown, although it can be hard to match. You can wear it with white, pale blue, and other browns, of course, but also try lavender and even a darker red with it. The jacket (Wool Blend Belted Jacket) is $198, and the skirt (Wool Blend Skirt) is $98. (Ann Taylor is celebrating its “big fall sale,” with prices marked up to 60% off original prices, but neither the jacket nor skirt seem to be on sale.)
