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 lovely gray suit at Banana Republic caught my eye because of how simple it is — it almost feels as close as you can get these days to a classic suit. The pants are perfect — not too cropped, not too skinny, not too wide — and they have pockets. (Remember, you can always sew pockets shut if they stick out in an unflattering way and/or if you don’t need them — or more likely, just keep them sewn closed when they come to you.) The style of the jacket is in keeping with the collarless, lapel-less trend, but I really like the bit of ruffle near the face. It’s a nice little detail that’s flattering but also cool and feminine. The jacket (Lightweight Wool Ruffle-Collar Blazer) is $198 (regular and tall sizes) and the pants (Logan Trouser-Fit Lightweight Wool Pant) are on sale for $63 (regular and long).
Two options in plus sizes are at Macy’s and Lord & Taylor (although the ruffles aren’t quite as subtle), and this sleeveless sheath dress at Talbots is only $59 on sale and comes in misses, woman, and woman petites.
