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 suit won’t be everyone’s cup of tea (or even everyone’s fantasy cup of tea), but I keep coming back to it — I think because the proportions feel right to me, at least for a suit with a longer blazer. Full length pants! Nipped in blazer with collar! Slightly longer blazer, yes, but not humorously so. The matching dress shares the topstitch details, while the pants don’t seem to have any of the details. Ladies, what are your thoughts — do you like the proportions or do you prefer trendier details like ankle pants and collarless blazers? The blazer (ALTUZARRA Topstitch Blazer) is $1795, and the pants (ALTUZARRA Flare Leg Serge Pants) are $795; the dress (ALTUZARRA Stripe Sleeveless A-Line Dress) is $1595.
It’s difficult to find matches with topstitched details, but proportionally, here’s a slightly more affordable version (lots of the higher-end designers have this look right now!), and here’s a plus-size suit with a collar and nipped waist.
