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.

Suit of the Week

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 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.

Suit of the Week: Lafayette 148 New York

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 how the simple one-button style of this black crosshatched suit is combined with the interesting collar, and I love the sort of heavy stitch along the seams. I also like the way that it’s your basic black suit with some interesting touches. I’d usually wear black with a suit like this, but it could be a nice opportunity to bring in some pastels as spring approaches. A pale lavender would look lovely, or a French blue — it’s a great way to bring in the season with your base layer. I couldn’t find a skirt for this suit, but the blazer does have matching pants. The jacket (Tristan Monticino Suit Blazer) is $598, and the pants (Barrow Monticino Pants) are $345, both at Nordstrom.

This is a nice plus-size option, although I can only find the jacket. Here’s a suit that’s a lower-priced alternative.

Suit of the Week: Reiss

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.

You can’t tell from the picture here, but this suiting collection from Reiss has this teeny tiny nubbly textured fabric that looks lovely, and I think it’s going to be one of those classic suits that’s got a little something different to it. It has a stunning British tailored look, and the dress that goes with it is so awesome we’ll have to give it its own post soon — the seams and darts are to die for. This suiting collection has a jacket, skirt, pants, and that ah-ma-zing dress, all for $220-$435.

Suit of the Week: Cushnie et Ochs

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. 

When you come across a lace-up suit, 95% of the time it’s not going to be work-appropriate and will be crossing into the territory of something a madam would wear — not the kind of thing you would wear to the office. This one, I think, can at least walk the boundary, and if you’ve got a work event in the evening it might be perfect. You could also wear it around the office — but with an actual blouse underneath, of course, not as it’s styled here! The jacket (Lace-up stretch-twill peplum blazer) is $1,495, and the pants (Stretch-twill straight-leg pants) are $975.

Here’s a more affordable option and another in plus sizes.
