Suit of the Week: Reiss

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 blazer from Reiss is gorgeous, and I love the texture, the dusky blue color, and the overall classic, tailored shape. It coordinates with slim-leg trousers and a pencil skirt, although I’m sorry to tell you the skirt looks very short, so unless you’re quite petite I wouldn’t wear it to work — but KYO. The full suit is available at Reiss, while Bloomingdale’s has just the jacket (Russell Textured Blazer) and skirt (Russell Tailored Skirt); prices range from $220-$445.

Here’s a more affordable option — jacket, pants, and skirt — and a plus-size option.

Suit of the Week: Theory

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.

It’s always interesting when Theory comes out with a new suit, because the Gabe and other suits have been so popular for so long. This one has a more modern look, although the straight-leg pants really don’t do it for me — I prefer the cropped pant look that’s also available. I like the sea blue, which is not quite navy and not quite royal blue (it also comes in black), and the one-button blazer as well. There’s also a matching sheath dress with a high, round neckline that looks like an update to the popular Betty dress. The jacket (Brince B Stretch Wool Jacket) is $435 at Nordstrom, and the pants (Hartsdale B Pants) are $285; there’s a matching pair of cropped pants and a dress as well.

Here are more affordable and plus-size options.

Suit of the Week: Boss

stylish striped skirt suit from Boss PLUS details on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017For 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.

Such an odd week this week — it’s a Wednesday but feels like a Monday. I spent a bit of time this weekend putting together a guide to the upcoming 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — readers LOVE this sale as a great way to get discounts on new fall merchandise, so if you’re unfamiliar with it you definitely want to check our guide out. (You can even still get a $20 Note if you sign up for a Nordstrom Rewards card by July 9 — they also have a credit card option. Cardholders get early access to the sale by more than a week, so they get the first dibs on all the good stuff.) In any event: we’ve seen a lot of horizontally striped suits, and I always feel a moment of sadness that there are so few suits with vertical stripes, which are much more flattering. So huzzah to Boss for making a stylish striped skirt suit with vertical stripes! I love the contrast at the bottom of the skirt, as well as the fringe detail. Lovely. The jacket (Komina Stripe Bouclé Suit Jacket) is $495, and the skirt (Vemala Stripe Bouclé Suit Skirt) is $335.

Suit of the Week: Banana Republic

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 awesome sateen classic-fit suit from Banana Republic, which I also saw on Instagram, looks like a neutral suit with a little something different. Pros to sateen: lightweight and breathable. Cons to sateen: it wrinkles! I would argue that the skirt and the dress are even cuter than the pants (which unfortunately are ankle pants), but they don’t picture them together. The sheath dress looks like it might require a new bra, but I would just keep your blazer on at work if that works for you. The suit is available in regular, tall, and petite sizes, and the whole set comes in khaki as well. (Should you be a fan, they’re part of Olivia Palermo’s picks). The jacket (Sateen Classic-Fit Blazer) is $158, and the pants (Avery-Fit Solid Sateen Pant) are $88; there’s also a matching dress. (The skirt, sadly, seems to have sold out online — check your local store if you’re really on the hunt!)

Here’s a (dark) olive suit in plus sizes for $240 total.

Suit of the Week: Ann Taylor

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.

We’ve talked before about winter tweed vs. tweed in summer, and this suit from Ann Taylor looks like a perfect summer tweed suit. I like the sleek, collarless jacket; the shorter length for the pants; and the fact that the pants have functional pockets (although if you’re like me and feel a little hippy sometimes, you may prefer to have the pockets sewn closed). The suit comes in regular sizes 00-18, petite sizes 00-16, and tall sizes 0-18. The jacket (Tweed Collarless Jacket) was $169 but is now $139 (with an additional 40% off at checkout to bring it to $83), the pants (available in two fits) were $98 but are now $69 (with an additional 40% off at checkout to bring them to $41), and there’s also a matching skirt and vest (not pictured; also on sale with an extra 40% off).

Here’s a plus-size option that’s also good for summer.

Suit of the Week: Talbots

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 light blue suit from Talbots seems kind of perfect for summer. I like that it’s mostly cotton (lined with 100% polyester, which can go both ways), and I like the light blue/dark blue combination and the subtle pattern to the suit. I also like the contrast piping and the basic pencil skirt, and I think the round neck is flattering. You could wear these pieces together or by themselves, too. As always with Talbots, there’s a very nice range of sizes: misses 2-20, petites 0P-14P, and woman 12W-24W. The jacket (Biscay Jacket) is $189, and the skirt (Biscay Pencil Skirt) is $99.
