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.
Huh: Nordstrom has a new in-house brand, Emerson Rose, that seems to be specializing in workwear, including a ton of elegant, sophisticated looks like this suit. I like this belted tweed blazer — note that only the front big is belted; the back is more voluminous, which is on trend with the rise of cape blazers. But while those can sometimes look a bit silly to me, this one looks almost vintage, like something Audrey Hepburn might have worn. Love. The pricing for the brand is pretty affordable — this jacket (Emerson Rose Belted Tweed Suit Jacket) is $199, the skirt (Emerson Rose Tweed Suit Pencil Skirt) is on sale for $60, and the pants (Emerson Rose Side Tab Wide Leg Tweed Suit Pants) are $129.
This plus size tweed suit is similar but more traditional, and also comes in regular and petite sizes.
