Suit of the Week: Hobbs London

red tweed skirt suit  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 the fact that Bloomingdale’s carries British brand Hobbs – there are so few stores in the US it’s great to have a work-appropriate, often machine washable workwear brand more readily available. This red tweed suit looks great (despite the fact that the skirt looks mighty short — I’m hoping that’s a super tall model…). The color is more wintry than festive, and I think you could wear both the dress, blazer, and skirt (if you dare) as separates as well — in fact, the dress is pretty awesome by itself. The jacket (Florrie Piped Jacket) is $375, and the dress (Florrie Textured Ribbon-Detail Dress) is $325.

Looking for a plus size option? Talbots has several suiting options in a deep burgundy, and this “glazed tweed” jacket is an interesting option as a separate.

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.

I like the slim cut of this Reiss suit, as well as the classic suiting wool, and in general it just looks like a great way to bring the red trend into your workwear. If you’re curious about what to wear with burgundy besides neutrals like white, black, and navy, I always like light blue with it — like a light blue button-front or a light blue lightweight sweater. Even a cobalt would look nice with this — you’d be surprised at how versatile it is. The jacket (Atlee Jacket) is $445, and the pants (Atlee trousers) are $245. Not pictured: a matching skirt and dress.

Here’s an affordable option at NY&Co and a plus-size option.

Suit of the Week: Hobbs

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 jacket and dress from Hobbs look like great options. They’re lined and machine washable, the jacket is a two-button style with two side flap pockets, and the dress has a lovely seamed bodice effect. In general, Hobbs gets great reviews. The jacket (Catherine Jacket) is $335, and the dress (Catherine Dress) is $285, both at Bloomingdale’s. At Hobbs, the pants (Catherine Pants) are $285 as well.

Here’s a more affordable option and a navy suit in plus sizes.

Suit of the Week: Oscar de la Renta

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 green Oscar de la Renta suit is giving me some serious kelly green #suitgoals because it’s just stunning. I love the cut of the blazer and the single button, and the fabric looks very luxe. I think you can really tell the difference between the nubby little fabric that Oscar de la Renta is using here with a virgin wool suit and, say, the much more affordable bright green Topshop suit that we posted a few weeks ago. There are only a few lucky sizes left for the blazer, so if one of them is yours and you also have $2,900 to spare on a bright green blazer, get there soon. The jacket (Oscar de la Renta fitted suit blazer) is $2,990, and the pants (skinny trousers) are $1,190.

Psst: Why is it not April 1 yet?

For plus sizes (and others), Talbots has green suit separates (in a more subdued green) in their seasonless crepe line.

Suit of the Week: Le Suit

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.

Boy, there are not a lot of affordable suits out there right now. Halogen used to be a reliable source, but they don’t seem to have anything right now. Limited was another option, but their operations have been on hold for a while (their fall collection will be here in “days,” their site says). So today I’m featuring Le Suit, which has been around for years and is one of the brands that tend to sell the entire suit at once. That can be a problem if you need separates for sizing reasons, but that said, this is pretty much the only time you’re going to find an entire suit for such an affordable price online — $99 at Macy’s. (I’ve found suits in stores for as low as $60.) I like the button, the pocket details, and the fact that the pants don’t have cuffs or pleats; it’s a very simple, basic suit. This would come in handy if you need to keep something in your office to change into at the last minute, or if you’ve got an interview and you usually don’t wear a suit. It comes in petite sizes 2–16 and straight sizes 4–18, and with a little tailoring it would be great — unless you’re one of those lucky people who can wear a suit like this off the rack. It’s also available in plus sizes 14W-24W. Le Suit One-Button Pantsuit

Suit of the Week: L.K. Bennett

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.

Oooh: a simple, classic, black tweed skirt suit is always in style, and I love this one from L.K. Bennett. Wear them together, wear them separately, wear them with neutrals, wear them with deep jewel tones in the fall and pastels in the spring… the possibilities are endless. Love. The jacket (Joyce Tweed Jacket) is $495, and the skirt (Joyce Tweed Skirt) is $265.

Here’s a very nice fitted tweed blazer in plus sizes in black and white, and this brown tweed suiting comes in regular, petite, plus sizes, and plus-size petites.
