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.

Banana Republic has a lot of fun suits right now, but some of them are starting to cross the line into Opposuits territory. (Go ahead and click — you won’t be sorry.) This gray windowpane is a nice change from a regular gray suit, but it still looks professional. The jacket is $198 and the cropped pants are $110; also check out the matching skirtsecond pair of pants, shift dress, sleeveless top, and cami. Right now with promo code BRSPECIAL, you can get 35% off your purchase.

Here are a couple of individual windowpane pieces in plus sizes: ankle pants and an A-line skirt.

Suit of the Week: Talbots

As we head into the dog days of summer, you may be desperate for some lightweight, airy suiting options. This summer cotton suit from Talbots looks interesting — I like the collarless blazer, the simple pencil skirt, and the nice summer color choices: grey and a dusky blue. Everything comes in four size ranges: regular, petite, woman, and woman petite. The jacket (Summer Cotton Suiting Jacket) is $159, and the skirt (Summer Cotton Pencil Skirt) is $89.50; there’s also a collared blazer, two pairs of pants, and a matching peplum shell.

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 suit is one of the first pieces that readers really noticed in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and — good news, ladies — it’s still in stock, and it’s getting good reviews. We’re featuring the skirt suit, but it also comes with a matching dress — and Boss actually has a lot of things in eggplant right now, including a nice twinset. The suiting separates are currently $196-$414; after the sale ends, prices will go back up to $295-$625.

Here’s a lower-priced suit that comes in four size ranges.

Psst: check out all of our workwear picks from the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — this suit is splurgey but there are a TON of things under $100.

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.

This blazer from Reiss is gorgeous, and I love the texture, the dusky blue color, and the overall classic, tailored shape. It coordinates with slim-leg trousers and a pencil skirt, although I’m sorry to tell you the skirt looks very short, so unless you’re quite petite I wouldn’t wear it to work — but KYO. The full suit is available at Reiss, while Bloomingdale’s has just the jacket (Russell Textured Blazer) and skirt (Russell Tailored Skirt); prices range from $220-$445.

Here’s a more affordable option — jacket, pants, and skirt — and a plus-size option.

Suit of the Week: Theory

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.

It’s always interesting when Theory comes out with a new suit, because the Gabe and other suits have been so popular for so long. This one has a more modern look, although the straight-leg pants really don’t do it for me — I prefer the cropped pant look that’s also available. I like the sea blue, which is not quite navy and not quite royal blue (it also comes in black), and the one-button blazer as well. There’s also a matching sheath dress with a high, round neckline that looks like an update to the popular Betty dress. The jacket (Brince B Stretch Wool Jacket) is $435 at Nordstrom, and the pants (Hartsdale B Pants) are $285; there’s a matching pair of cropped pants and a dress as well.

Here are more affordable and plus-size options.

Suit of the Week: Boss

Such an odd week this week — it’s a Wednesday but feels like a Monday. I spent a bit of time this weekend putting together a guide to the upcoming 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — readers LOVE this sale as a great way to get discounts on new fall merchandise, so if you’re unfamiliar with it you definitely want to check our guide out. (You can even still get a $20 Note if you sign up for a Nordstrom Rewards card by July 9 — they also have a credit card option. Cardholders get early access to the sale by more than a week, so they get the first dibs on all the good stuff.) In any event: we’ve seen a lot of horizontally striped suits, and I always feel a moment of sadness that there are so few suits with vertical stripes, which are much more flattering. So huzzah to Boss for making a stylish striped skirt suit with vertical stripes! I love the contrast at the bottom of the skirt, as well as the fringe detail. Lovely. The jacket (Komina Stripe Bouclé Suit Jacket) is $495, and the skirt (Vemala Stripe Bouclé Suit Skirt) is $335.
