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, 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 week we’re liking this Tahari suit, available exclusively at Bloomingdale’s. We like the long, lean look of the jacket, and the charcoal linen fabric seems perfect for boiling summer days. (We will say, though, that the styling in the picture reminds us a wee bit of Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man — we might try it with a nice silk blouse in a rich color like a French blue, a royal purple, or a lipstick red. Or, if we stuck with a neutral top, we’d add a pop of color with a brooch on the lapel or a statement necklace.) The jacket (Tahari ASL Exclusively for Bloomingdale’s Quinn Linen Jacket) is $168, and the pants (Tahari ASL Exclusively for Bloomingdale’s Vera Linen Straight-Leg Pants) are $158.
