Suit of the Week: Brooks Brothers

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.

This Brooks Brothers suit seems gorgeous (although I might leave out the scarf if I were the one to style it). I love how the skirt has a pieced-together look, as well as the blazer. I also like the high collarless style with the two buttons, and I think it just looks like a great suit. It’s interesting that it has welt pockets, too. I don’t like sandals with suits — I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — but add a basic pump and now we’re talkin’. I would wear this mostly as separates because I think a little cropped blazer like this can be used in a lot of different ways, and I think the skirt is lovely too. The jacket (Jacquard Cropped Jacket) is $498, and the skirt (Jacquard A-Line Skirt) is $268 (and, well, if you buy 2, you get the 3rd free).

Two lower-priced options are here and here, and here’s a plus-size option.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Ponte Fit & Flare Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This Eliza J dress is an update to an older version that’s been in our Workwear Hall of Fame for a while now. The older version has a jewelneck, and I’m excited to see this one has a V-neck, which I always think of as more flattering. It has cute little pleats on the waist and the shoulders, and the fabric itself is quite nice and stretchy and does retain its shape — very comfortable but still dense. The dress comes in sizes 2-16 in black, gray, royal blue, and teal. Ponte Fit & Flare Dress

Here’s a plus-size option (which also comes in other size ranges).

Coffee Break: ‘Siren’ Semiprecious Stone Stud Earrings

I’m a big fan of Monica Vinader because her designs are delicate and organic and just really lovely. I like the green (Amazonite) we’re featuring here but this earring also comes in a more unobtrusive rose quartz/rose gold (fun fact: rose quartz is supposed to attract love, if you’re interested in that sort of thing). This seems like the perfect post earring, and it’s described on the product page as adding “coastal glamour to the hand-faceted stones of vermeil stud earrings inspired by the artfully imperfect shapes of sea-worn treasures.” This did not strike me as a sea-worn treasure until it was described as such, but I like the imperfect circle and all of the facets of the stone — I think it’s gorgeous. The earrings are $175 at Nordstrom. ‘Siren’ Semiprecious Stone Stud Earrings

Tuesday’s Workwear Report – Drystan Jacket

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I love the nubby texture and snap front on this cotton/poly jacket from Club Monaco, as well as the peplum details. I like it as pictured, with stripes, but also think it would look great with just about any top. It’s $289, at Club Monaco.   Drystan Jacket

Here’s a more affordable peplum option in regular sizes, and one in plus sizes.

Coffee Break: Michelle Pump

We did a whole roundup of nude-for-you heels last week, but I didn’t realize that Naturalizer has a whole Nude Collection with a million shades. This Michelle pump has been around for a while, and it’s great to see it in so many shades of brown and beige and tan — I applaud the effort on Naturalizer’s part. The shoe is $89 at Zappos in a wide range of sizes: 4–12 in narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide. Naturalizer Michelle

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Cashmere Shrug

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Shrugs are very big right now. I think they’re great to wear with sleeveless dresses in spring and summer, and I’ve been seeing them everywhere. This elbow-sleeved Michael Kors shrug is $695 at Nordstrom in sizes XS-XL. Cashmere Shrug

Psst: if you like shrugs and fun patterns, you must see these UMD X Opening Ceremony shrugs (also, more affordable at $266). This shrug is under $50, has been getting good reviews from the readers, and comes in regular and plus sizes in LOTS of colors.
