Suit of the Week: Mixed Tweed Suit

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’s my main question: why so short, Ann Taylor? If this navy cotton tweed suit looks great but for the miniskirt, note that the skirt DOES come in tall sizes up to size 18 (as well as petites, fwiw) — and there’s always the possibility that the model is crazy tall. Other than that, I like — the jacket is $198 and the skirt is $109. (Plus: one of their better sales is happening today — 50% off all sale items — and check out these adorable green heels (also green flats).

Looking for plus sizes? Here’s a tweed suit in plus sizes; and here are two tweed blazers to rock the separates look.

Suit of the Week: Topshop

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.

There are a lot of boring suits and really wacky suits out right now. This bright green jade suit from Topshop is an interesting one because it’s well-reviewed and comes from a younger brand. Colorful suits are usually associated with older women, but this cut is very modern, and the brand is very modern, too. So if you want a really fun suit that’s also affordable and professional, check this out. It’s nice that you can wear it as separates, and the pants look good by themselves for work. They come in green, blue, and pink, while the jacket only is available in green and pink. At Nordstrom, the jacket (Double Breasted Suit Jacket) is $125, and the pants (Tailored Cigarette Trousers) are $68. The size range is 2–12.

For plus sizes, here are some pink (in two shades) and green pants at Eloquii, and a pencil skirt there with a lot of color choices that include pink and green.

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.

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.
