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’ve been ogling this suiting collection from Talbots for a while. A lot of it is your classic, basic suiting — the trousers, the jackets, the pencil skirts — but I like the completeness of the set in that it has a matching wool-blend vest as well as a sesasonless wool-blend top as well. This strikes me as a great collection for when, say, you’re traveling for work for a longish period and want everything to coordinate well, as well as give you variability in your outfits; this could also be a great suiting collection for a long trial away from home. The jacket (Talbots Kate Fit Seasonless wool-blend long jacket) is $199, and the skirt (Seasonless wool-blend pencil skirt) is $99. The other 10 pieces in the collection range from $99 to $199; I think this link will show you all the options. Oh, and it’s available in navy, a beige “sesame,” a medium grey heather, and black in regular, petites, plus sizes, and plus size petites.
