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.
Colored suits are everywhere this fall, which still strikes me as a pleasant change, and a great way to perk up a wardrobe of all black/gray/navy suits. I’m liking the subtle differences on this purple suit from Nanette Lepore — the skirt is just a bit more flippy than your usual suit skirt, and the peplum starts just a wee bit higher (more midriff than waist). (I’m not sure if this is a nod to the croptop trend, but I’m seeing a LOT of very cropped suit jackets lately. Personally I’m not a fan of jackets that end above the hips, though — I think part of the reason I like this suit so much is because the jacket has a normal length overall.) The jacket (Nanette Lepore Stardust Jacket) is $448, and the skirt (Nanette Lepore Gamma Skirt) is $228.
