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 really like both of these pieces. Cobalt suits seem to be a trend that’s been brewing for a few years now (I first saw it with independent designers Quincy Apparel) and I like the pop of color. This particular set looks particularly nice — I like that both pieces are a lightweight wool, and are fully lined. The colorblocked dress doesn’t look too Star Trekky, and for once I like the included belt — it seems like just another interesting element of the colorblocking. The jacket (Banana Republic Cobalt Lightweight Wool One-Button Blazer) is $198 ($139 with today’s code BRDRESSED), and the dress (Colorblock Cobalt Lightweight Wool Belted Sheath) is $150 ($105 today with the code).
