Suit of the Week

1For 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, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

We are loving this suit from Andy The-Anh today — we love the pleated neckline on the dress, as well as the almost shelf-like pleats on the waist of the jacket — it looks fun and modern, but still likely to flatter any woman’s body.  We’re normally not fans of beige, but the contemporary design is particularly great when paired with the muted tones.  The jacket is $620 (Peplum Boyfriend Jacket), and the dress is $515 (Pleated-Neck Dress), both available at Neiman Marcus in sizes 2-14.

It seems like we are posting a zillion gray suits in 2010, and we apologize — it isn’t intentional.  (But then, it wasn’t intentional to post so many purple suits in 2009, so who knows.)  Still:  Here’s another beautiful, beautiful suit.  We love the detailing, from the rounded lapels and wide neckline, to the insets below the waistband.   The jacket (Classiques Entier ‘Sketchy Melange’ Jacket) is $268, and the pants (Classiques Entier ‘Sketchy Melange – Midtown’ Pants) are $158. A skirt, not pictured (Classiques Entier ‘Sketchy Melange’ Pencil Skirt) is also available also for $148.  All pieces are available in sizes 0-16.

We’re liking this white suit with beige contrasting details.  It strikes us as interesting but professional, and avoids the “prissy” vibe that afflicts a lot of white suits.  (And for whatever reason, we love the brown The jacket (Antonio Melani “Cruz” Jacket) is $199, and the skirt (Antonio Melani “Felicia” Skirt) is $99, both available at Dillards.

Andy The-Anh Tweed Jacket & PantsFor 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, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional. Today we’re liking this suit by Andy The-Anh, despite a few hesitations.  First, the good — the trousers are perfectly flared, and the way the jacket nips in is absolutely gorgeous.  We like the proportions in general, and we love the gray.  The only thing that slightly throws us for a loop is the extra white fabric on the jacket and on the pants pockets — it looks great with the poplin blouse, but we’re not sure we can picture it with another color.  Still:  lovely, wearable suit.  It’s available at Neiman Marcus for $564 (Tweed Jacket) and $379 (Tweed Pants).

Jones New York is having a pretty good sale on suits and dresses, with an extra 30% off (plus free shipping for any purchase over $75). We like this tan skirt suit, which has a really interesting texture to the fabric. We’d wear it with colorful pumps (purple or blue, perhaps) and a white shell.  Was $240, now $160, and the additional 30% off brings it to $112.  Crystal Sand 2 Piece Skirt Suit, Ships 4/8

Man, online stores have nothing by way of an interesting suit this week. Which means that we’re going to go with a lovely basic — this J.Crew super 120s combo of a peplum jacket and fluted skirt.  After all, we love a good peplum jacket, as well as a good wool like super 120s.  The jacket (Super 120s peplum jacket) is $188, and the skirt (Super 120s fluted skirt) is $118.
