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.

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.

I always think of a pique fabric like this one as being more appropriate for summer — you can see the tiny, nubby texture to the suit if you zoom in on the image. I like the ruched sleeves of the blazer and the collarless style with notched lapel. The jacket (Antonio Melani Jess Pique Blazer Jacket) is $199, the pants (Antonio Melani Kaylie Pique Straight Leg Suiting Pant) are $119,  and the skirt (Antonio Melani Shosh Pique Flounce Hem Pencil Skirt) is $99. The available sizes are 0-14.

Here’s a plus-size option that also has a flounce-hem skirt: blazer, skirt, and pants (although the skirt is sold out in one of the colors).

Suit of the Week: Tahari

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 mostly like the pretty dusky blue ponte dress here, but I could see the blazer getting a ton of wear, as well — and even better, both pieces are on sale right now at Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, and Amazon. (There’s a matching skirt as well, but I can’t seem to find a pair of pants.) The jacket is priced $96-$103, and the dress is priced $68-$73; most places seem to have a wide range of sizes 2-16.

This plus-size suit in a dusky blue/black looks lovely.

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 is the obligatory royal blue suit! When we did a story last year that rounded up light blue suits for workwear and discussed how readers felt about them, most of you noted that you only would wear them as separates. I have to say, though, the trend continues — a lot of brands continue to offer them. This wool suit from Pallas is really pretty and already selling out in a few sizes at Net-a-Porter. The jacket (Andrea blazer) is $1,860, and the pants (Adonis skinny pants) are $1090.

Here’s something from the more affordable Classiques line in the same bright, happy, Mediterranean blue and in a wider size range. Here’s a plus-size option (also available in regular, petite, and petite plus sizes): jacket and skirt.
