Suit of the Week: Sézane

Sézane red suitFor 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 recently noticed that Nordstrom is carrying a new brand, Sézane, where the pieces have a slightly boho/vintage feel, but a lot of them are work-appropriate. Take, for example, this coral suit (also in navy) that has a polished, buttoned up vibe — but in such a fun color. (Some other favorite pieces from the line include this gorgeous blouse and this flirty tee.) The jacket (Sarina Blazer) is $210, and the pants (Gustav Slim Ankle Trousers) are $120.

Suit of the Week: Maje

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 plaid blazer and pant set from Maje has a really chic look (although I wish they hadn’t styled it with a turtleneck — and a graphic one at that). I think it’s a fun and fashiony take on a suit, and you could wear it in the fall, as shown here, or very easily in spring when paired with a cute white top. The jacket (checked woven blazer) is $490, and the pants (checked twill tapered pants) are $265.

If you’re looking for something similar that’s more affordable, this plaid blazer from Halogen at Nordstrom is a good bet.

Suit of the Week: Topshop

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 going to feature this lovely textured navy suit but then I spied this green one — it reminds me so much of one of my favorite suits from last year, but at about a tenth of the price. A suit this affordable is definitely going to be hit or miss in terms of fabric and fit — but if you think it could work for your lifestyle it’s a fun but professional look. Wear it in spring with whites, light grays, and pastels — and wear it in late summer and fall with black, navy, and contrasting colors like deep red and purple. The “suit set” is $95.

Looking for something similar in plus sizes? Try this option at River Island or this one at ASOS.

Suit of the Week: Talbots

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 think this gingham suit from Talbots is fun — and it’s lightweight as well, with a touch of spandex for stretch. It has a good vibe for summer, especially if you don’t want to deal with linen and its inevitable wrinkles. I also like the little pop of red on the lining of the collar. I think you could wear the jacket and skirt as separates as well as a suit. (I like the skirt version the best, but also note that it has a cropped pant.) The jacket (One-Button Jacket) is $179, and the skirt (Pencil Skirt) is $89.50; there are also matching pants. Size ranges are misses, petites, woman, and woman petites.

Suit of the Week: Max Mara

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.

What first caught my eye about this Max Mara suit was the dress — it has a very classic, luxe look while also being linen. Then I saw that it was pictured with a blazer, and while I usually think cowl necks and blazers don’t go well together, I love the way the combination looks here. I do wish the dress had a belt, just for a pop of color, like the one we recently featured from MM.LaFleur. If you want to spend a crazy amount of money on a linen suit (which probably isn’t the best idea, but you do you), this one would definitely be a good candidate. The jacket (Vello Linen Blazer) is $1,350, and the dress (Laura Cowl Neck Linen Dress) is $795. The pants (Atlanta Linen Pants) are $545.

Banana Republic has a few more affordable pieces in linen/cotton, including pants and two blazers, and Lafayette 148 New York has a plus-size option, a beige blazer.

Suit of the Week: Tahari ASL

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.

Skirt suits sold as one piece can be very hit or miss, as I’ve noted in the past — but this burgundy skirt suit looks nice. I like the zippered details and the peplum, as well as the nice color, and I always think that you can more easily wear a pencil skirt as a separate with these kinds of suits than you can with the pants that come with them (because the pants usually only look good with the suit jacket). You can always find Tahari ASL skirt suits at places like Lord & Taylor, Macy’s, and Amazon. This one is $70–$208 at Amazon, Boscov’s (straight sizes) and 6pm (similar). Tahari by Arthur S. Levine Women’s Plus Size Stretch Crepe Skirt Suit with Peplum Detail
