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 mentioned this colorful suit from Theory as part of last week’s sale roundup for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale (workwear, shoes & bags) — but I thought it was worth featuring on its own for a suit of the week. Not only is it some of Theory’s classic suiting pieces (Gabe, Betty, and Emery pants), but done in “cassis” (pictured at top) as well as blue (pictured below). We haven’t talked about colorful suits in a while, ladies — are you yea or nay? I always think this is something that is very region-specific, so if you can please let us know your general area in your comment. The jacket (‘Gabe 2′ Wool Blend Blazer) is $279, but after the sale it’ll be $425, the pants (Emery 2 Wool Blend Pants) are now $196, but will be $295 after the sale ends. The dress (Betty Sheath Dress) is only available in blue — it is now $196, but after the sale ends August 3 it’ll go back up to $295.
