Suit of the Week: Antonio Melani

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 Antonio Melani is lovely. I like the melange fabric that looks like it’s sort of stretchy — the suit looks comfortable but it’s got some structure. I also really like the collarless blazer style and the fitted look. It comes in sizes 0-14 at Dillard’s. The jacket (Antonio Melani Felicity Stretch Melange Jacket) is $199, and the skirt (Antonio Melani Denzel Stretch Melange Pencil Skirt) is $99.

Here’s a plus-size option.

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.

I was intrigued to see this navy pinstripe suit because it features Brooks Brothers’ signature BrooksCool fabric, which can be awesome in a couple of ways: If you need to wear a wool suit in the middle of summer and you don’t want to melt, if you tend to run warm, or, for older women, if you’re having hot flashes. This fabric is water-repellent and crease-resistant, making it ideal for travel, too. I also like the grosgrain detail on the inside and the seam binding. It’s just a gorgeous, typically well-made Brooks Brothers suit. The jacket (Pinstripe BrooksCool® Two-Button Jacket) is $398, the pants (Pinstripe High-Waisted BrooksCool® Pants) are $298, and the skirt (not pictured) is $198.

Here’s a more affordable navy pinstripe suit, and a black pinstripe, and here’s a plus-size option.

Suit of the Week: Dolce & Gabbana

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: cute suits are starting to hit the racks again, ladies. (It always feels like there’s a lull between seasons!) There were a lot of good candidates for today, but the suit I’m loving most this week is this lovely dot print blazer and pants from Dolce & Gabbana. The dot feels so fresh, especially with the severe black and traditional details like the three pockets — and it’s interesting to note that the lapels here are much wider than we’ve been seeing for a while. The jacket (Dot Print Blazer) is $2595, and the pants (Dot Print Slim Ankle Pants) are $995.

Looking for something similar but more affordable? This indigo dot jacquard blazer is $109 and comes in regular, petite, women’s, and women’s petite sizes.

Suit of the Week: Basler

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 thought this lovely suit was purple for sure, but it’s actually navy. It has a gorgeous pleated back, which I kind of like more on a navy suit — typically you see fanciful details like this on colorful suits but I think you’ll get a lot more wear out of navy. If you don’t like the pleated-back blazer, they do have a more traditional, notch-lapel, two-button blazer. The pictured jacket (Pleated Back Blazer) is $495, and the pants (Bella Pants) are $295.

Here are two more affordable pleated-back blazers: Club Monaco and Shelli Segal, as well as a plus-size option + two pants.

Suit of the Week: Alexander McQueen

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 love the peplum on this, and I love the sort of textured, nubby tweed. I think the pencil skirt looks like a classic and would be great to wear by itself, and the blazer would also look amazing on its own. It’s interesting to see the styling, with the really puffy sleeve beneath the tweed blazer. I haven’t seen that too many places, and I think if you’ve got a bell sleeve, it might be a fun look to try, especially with a pop of color there, or if you’ve got something with a lace detail. The jacket (Alexander McQueen Cotton and Wool-Blend Tweed Peplum Jacket) is $1895, and the skirt (Alexander McQueen Cotton and Wool-Blend Tweed Pencil Skirt) is $675.

So, skirt suits with lower prices and/or extended sizes aren’t too plentiful right now, probably because of the season, so I’m not finding too many other options aside from a couple of frumpy choices or “festive” styles left over from the holidays…

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. 

This “micro-houndstooth” L.K. Bennett suit has a very classic, collarless blazer with a zip and peplum, along with a coordinating pencil skirt — it just looks classic and beautiful and easy. It’s available in lucky sizes only, with some labeled “low stock,” so if you like it, buy it now. The jacket (Gaia Jacket) is $395, and the skirt (Gaia Skirt) is $225.

Here’s a more affordable option and a plus-size option.
