Suit of the Week: CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC

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.

Calvin Klein’s newish designer line, 205W39NYC, occasionally has bonkers suits — but the unusual teal color seems to be the only “surprise” here. (If this is too tame for you, check this out.) I like the cut, and I could see the blueish teal color being great as separates as well as a full suit for a high-impact day. The jacket (Wool blazer) is $1800, and the pants (Wool slim-leg pants) are $850. (I believe this is the same blazer at another store if you’d like another view.)

Looking for an affordable dupe? This suit is down to almost sold out but a great match for color. If you just like the look of the longer jacket with looser pants, try this suit, this suit, or this suit in a wide range of sizes (all in more traditional colors).

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.

I’ve seen white suits and I’ve seen pinstriped suits, but I don’t think I’ve seen a white pinstriped suit like this one from Reiss before. I do like it as a full suit, particularly as here where it’s styled with a soft color to avoid the “gangster in a comic book” vibe that always goes with wide pinstripes like this. (I’d stay far away from crisp colors like red, black, even stark white — and even further away from anything with sparkle or sheen to it, like a hammered satin camisole or silk blouse.) That said, I think the pieces excel the most when worn as separates — the pants are fun and on trend while still being really versatile, and the jacket is just the right blend of oversized and sleek. The jacket (Rodeo Jacket) is $495, and the pants (Rodeo Trousers) are $295.

Suit of the Week: Sézane

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.
