Suit of the Week: Classiques Entier

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 am in love with this sheath dress, which has a pieced-together look, like they’ve put fabric pieces together in an interesting way so that the pinstripes go in all directions. Even better, it has a matching jacket and matching full-length trousers that have a simple pinstripe. This lovely suit looks interesting and flattering and traditional, and super wearable for work, but you can also have fun with the dress by itself. The dress is $167 (was $279), the matching jacket (Pinstripe Suiting Jacket) is $179 (was $299), and the pants (Pinstripe Stretch Wool Trousers) are $119 (were $199).

Here’s a plus-size pinstripe suit and a plus-size pinstripe sheath dress.

(Psst: As we noted earlier today, the big Nordstrom sale is on — don’t miss our roundup!)

Suit of the Week: Ted Baker London

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’ve often said that I prefer light gray to white in summer because I think it’s more wearable, and this light gray suit from Ted Baker is lovely. (Just a note: A lot of Ted Baker stuff right now has really lovely rose gold–tone hardware, including this suit.) I think the angular darts in the front are unusual and beautiful, and the blazer almost has a peplum cut to it. The single-button style looks nice, too. The suit comes in sizes 0-5 (oo-14) at Nordstrom. The jacket (Radiia Suit Jacket) is $429, the dress (Radiiad Suiting Sheath Dress) is $295; matching pants are $215.

This light gray suit at Talbots is more affordable and comes in four size ranges.

Suit of the Week: Stella McCartney

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 already know I’m biased in favor of blue suits, but c’mon — if you had the money, wouldn’t you want this suit? I like that this suit looks like it can be worn in multiple seasons, made springy in the spring with lots of white accents, as pictured — but that it could very easily look more autumnal with darker accents, whether they’re neutral (black, navy) or darker jewel tones. My eyebrows raised a bit to see that Net-a-Porter’s calling the pants track pants, as to my eye the pants are lacking the banded bottom cuff and resulting slightly poufy sweatpant-look that I generally find so offensive about track pants. (They do have a pull-on waist, but hey, just what you need for all those big summer associate lunches, right?) The pictured suit is Stella McCartney; the jacket (Mattea stretch-cady blazer) is $1,515, and the pants (Tamara stretch-crepe track pants) are $650.

Looking for something similar? This skirt suit comes in plus and regular sizes, and this $123 pantsuit (with today’s sale) comes in sizes 2-18.

Psst: Does this outfit make anyone’s else’s eyes hurt?

Suit of the Week: White House Black Market

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.

If you’re on the hunt for a white suit for summer, this traditional version might be just what you’re looking for — the bootcut pants, wider lapels, and one-button are all classic features.  (If you’re looking for full-length trousers for work in general, do note that WHBM has a ton of them in stock — and in short, tall, and regular sizes up to 16 (generally). Also, this dress is now marked to $70 and is delightful.) The pictured suit jacket (Miranda Suiting Jacket) is $150, and the pants (Miranda Suiting Slim Bootcut Pants) are $99.

Psst: sure, April 1 was more than a month ago, but if you’re on the hunt for a silly suit, here you go…

Suit of the Week: Express

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.

Here’s a question for the readers: What are your your favorite stores for affordable suits now that The Limited has shuttered (Chapter 11) and other places are closing down too (or drastically limiting their suiting options)? Do you have any to recommend? This suit at Express is a nice casual option. I like that it’s a linen blend, and I like the pretty blue shade as well. You could wear the pants or blazer by themselves, as well, and in general this looks like a good suit. There are only a few reviews, but they’re positive. In general, Express (in my experience) tends to be fairly curvy-friendly. The jacket (24-Inch Linen Blend One Button Jacket) is $138, and the pants (Mid-Rise Linen-Blend Barely Boot Columnist Pant), which come in regular, short, and long, are $79. (Buy 1, get 1 50% off.)

Because some of the sizes are sold out or pretty low in stock for this suit, we’re also sharing the 24-Inch One Button Jacket, which is $128 and comes in 11 (!) colors, including celestial blue, festive green, cranberry, an orangey red (actually called “red”), and more. In general, there are a lot of fun colors at Express if you’re looking for an affordable suit.

Here’s a plus-size linen-blend blazer.

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.
