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.
While browsing the Lord & Taylor sale, I noticed these two gorgeous pieces. Love the dress — that color! that texture! that flirty but still appropriate cutout! Love the jacket — that color! that texture! the almost vintage vibe to the cut! Do I love them TOGETHER? Well… no. I think the cutout looks a bit odd under the jacket. But they’re on sale, and they’re cute as separates, and hey, if push comes to shove, you have two pieces that can, in fact, be worn as a suit. (Or, maybe you disagree with me, and like the cutout-beneath-jacket look?) The jacket (KAY UNGER Printed Blazer Jacket) is on sale for $150, and the dress (KAY UNGER Cap-Sleeve Dress with Cutout) is on sale for $127.50; with code STYLE they each come down another 15%. (Here’s another cute Kay Unger suit on a deeper discount, but in more limited sizes.)
