Suit of the Week: Rebecca Taylor

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 was poking through some Bloomingdale’s exclusives recently (they call the collection “100% Bloomingdale’s”) when I found this gorgeous tailored blazer from Rebecca Taylor. It comes in black and navy in sizes 00–12 and looks like a great suit if you want something that’s classic but still very feminine. The jacket (Lila Tailored Blazer) is $395; there are matching cropped pants for $295 as well as trouser pants for $350.

For other peplum suit options, try Tahari ASL: Lord & Taylor has a skirt suit in plus sizes on sale for $210, another skirt suit is on sale for $82.49 at Macy’s (lucky sizes only, regular and petite), and yet another skirt suit is $150 at Amazon in sizes 2–18.

Oooh: Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I love this stylish wool twill blazer and skirt suit from L.K. Bennett’s new collection — it looks like that perfect mix of polished, authoritative, serious, and stylish. Love the peplum and sliiiiight ruffle in the back of the blazer, and while I don’t usually like the “one prominent button” look but I really kind of feel like it works here.  The jacket is $495, the skirt is $285, and the wide, cropped trousers are $295.

Off the beaten path SOTW: Golden Goose. Looking for a more classic suit in plus sizes or regular sizes? Check out our recent roundups.

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.

As we’ve mentioned before: a corduroy suit can be a lot of look, and is probably better as separates. Still, this one looks great, and I especially love the dusky pink color — it’s kind of feels like a more modern take on winter white. The jacket comes in black and a forest green as well for $475, and the wide leg trousers (in pink only) are $275.

Looking for a more affordable option (and in plus sizes)? ASOS seems to be the spot for both regular and plus size options.

Suit of the Week: White House Black Market

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’m not usually a fan of red suits, but this one caught my eye at White House Black Market (where, side note, a friend just spent $1,700 — so apparently the store is worth a look right now!). I love the seaming on the jacket, and I think it looks great in plus sizes as well as regular and petite sizes. I also like the jacket’s stand collar and hook-and-eye closure, and that the suit is fully lined and (huzzah!) machine washable. There’s a very nice red dress that goes with it (although it’s a little on the long side), as well as a flounce-hem skirt and pants — so there are a lot of options. I don’t know if I’d necessarily wear the blazer together with the pants or skirt, but I think they look great as separates with the option to add the blazer if you need it. The entire suit is currently on sale: The jacket (Stand-Collar Suiting Jacket) is $83.99, the pants (Crepe Slim Flare Suiting Pants) are $48.99, the dress (Seamed Suiting Sheath Dress) is $90.99, and the skirt (Flounce-Hem Pencil Skirt) is $48.99.

If you’re on the hunt for a subtle but stylish navy herringbone suit, Talbots has a great one now.

There are matching pants, a dress, and the two button blazer, all priced between $134 and $231 today. Italian Luxe Knit Herringbone Suiting

Suit of the Week: Mugler

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: flares are definitely coming back. We’re still in that silly/trendy/FASHUN phase right now, unfortunately (this blue flared pantsuit looks like something an extra would wear in a 70s movie!), because I think flared pantsuits can, in theory, be a great look. Note that flares should be hemmed so about an inch of your heel sticks out (I’d call these too long), and that it’s especially difficult to mix a voluminous top with a voluminous bottom, so think streamlined. The black suit pictured here is from Mugler — the jacket is $1585 and the pants are $995. There’s an awesome dress (not pictured) that is more on the “dinner” side of desk to dinner, but that’s me.
