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 digging the retro vibe of this checked suiting jacket from The Limited — somewhere between the pattern, the three-quarter sleeves, the lack of a collar, the princess seams, and the peplum I’m seeing Rosalind Russell or Myrna Loy. The jacket comes with both matching pants (on sale, natch), and a matching skirt. I think all three pieces could be real workhorses in a growing wardrobe. The jacket (Checked Suiting Jacket) is $128, the skirt (High Waist Checkered Pencil Skirt) is $59.90, and the pants (Cassidy Banded-Sides Classic Flare Pants) were $74.90, but go down to $44.94 with today’s sale: 40% off pants and denim (and free shipping on purchases over $100).
