Suit of the Week: Boss

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 shopping with my mother this past weekend and spied this suit at Nordstrom — and totally fell in love. (The pictures don’t do it justice.) The fun “asymmetrical hidden-button front closure” is really cool, flattering, and professional — it’s like a diagonal dash of solid navy on an otherwise pinstriped suit. Love the whole thing. The jacket (Jadela Pinstripe Suit Jacket) is $575, and the pants (Tilunana Pinstripe Suit Trousers) are $255.

Here’s a more affordable option and a plus-size option, both on sale at Macy’s.

Suit of the Week: Max Mara

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 texture on this stretch-wool suit from Max Mara — the woven pattern is subtle but also noticeable enough to add some interest. The jacket is nipped in at the waist in a flattering way and has two real pockets, and the pants are wide leg (but not overly so) with, again, two real pockets — both with the excellent tailoring that you’d expect from Max Mara. Do note that the images of the suit on Nordstrom’s site and on Selfridges‘ site show significantly different shades of gray — the gray (technically, black, as it’s labeled) in Nordstrom’s images is a lot darker than the shade of gray on Selfridges’ site. (No worries if you’re particularly picky about your grays and get a surprise in the mail, though — Nordstrom has free returns.) The jacket (Zac Stretch Wool Blazer) is $1,190 and the pants (Verbas Stretch Wool Pants) are $595.

Suit of the Week: Banana Republic

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 seen so much drab, dull pink lately. Millennial Pink, Tumblr Pink — I also think of it as a Glossier or Goop pink. So it’s nice to see a bright, crisp, powder pink like this suit — it just feels different and I like it. The suit, which is made in a lightweight wool, is at Banana Republic (where it’s getting good reviews) and comes in regular (0-16) and petite (00-14) sizes. I think it’s a very fresh color, and it would also look good as separates if that’s what you’re looking for. The jacket (Long and Lean-Fit Lightweight Wool Blazer) is $198, and the pants (Ryan Slim Straight-Fit Lightweight Wool Pant) are $98.

Here’s a plus-size blazer from Talbots in a very similar shade of pink, and a plus-sized blazer and pants at Eloquii in a brighter pink.

Suit of the Week: Ann Taylor

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: Ann Taylor has a few cute suits right now, including this sleek pin-dot suit (pictured here with a matching peplum shell, which I’m not totally sure I’m into, FWIW). I think the suit is on trend in a lot of different regards — the bracelet-length sleeves, the ankle-length pants, the total lack of frills — and even polka dots are supposed to be in for 2018, so the teeny tiny pin dots here are kind of on trend as well (versus just being a dependable classic). There’s some weirdness afoot online, with capri pants being pictured in one of the instances even though both matching pants are ankle length; I also expect the stock is highly changeable as well, so call your local store or start a chat if your size appears to be out. The jacket (Pindot Suit Jacket) is $179, and the pants (Ankle Pant in Pindot – Devin Fit) are $109; they both come in regular, petite, and tall sizes. There’s also a matching Kate fit pant (almost entirely sold out in regular sizes, but still available in petite/tall sizes).

This suit is more affordable, and Talbots has a mini-dot suit in plus sizes, plus size petite, petites, and regular sizes 2-18.

Suit of the Week: Banana Republic

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 lovely gray suit at Banana Republic caught my eye because of how simple it is — it almost feels as close as you can get these days to a classic suit. The pants are perfect — not too cropped, not too skinny, not too wide — and they have pockets. (Remember, you can always sew pockets shut if they stick out in an unflattering way and/or if you don’t need them — or more likely, just keep them sewn closed when they come to you.) The style of the jacket is in keeping with the collarless, lapel-less trend, but I really like the bit of ruffle near the face. It’s a nice little detail that’s flattering but also cool and feminine. The jacket (Lightweight Wool Ruffle-Collar Blazer) is $198 (regular and tall sizes) and the pants (Logan Trouser-Fit Lightweight Wool Pant) are on sale for $63 (regular and long).

Two options in plus sizes are at Macy’s and Lord & Taylor (although the ruffles aren’t quite as subtle), and this sleeveless sheath dress at Talbots is only $59 on sale and comes in misses, woman, and woman petites.

Happy Wednesday! I’m not usually one for pinstriped suits, but this suit looks absolutely fabulous. I love the high, round neckline and lack of collar, along with the double peplum and pockets lower down. The print itself isn’t what I would call a true pinstripe with a thin, crisp line but rather a chalky hint of a stripe throughout the jacket, which I like because I think it makes it more versatile. The jacket (Jasyma Stripe Wool Suit Jacket) is $595, and the skirt (Titana Stretch Wool Trousers) are $285. There’s also a matching sheath dress.

Looking for something more affordable that also comes in plus sizes? Here’s a navy pinstriped option at Talbots.
