Wow — there are some mighty colorful suits out there right now. (For all the women who enjoy wearing suits on their resort vacation, perhaps?) Anyway: there seems to be a lack of fun, interesting suits, but this is one we haven’t seen before: Italian topstitched twill suit, from Bebe. We like the piping and … Read More about Suit of the Week: Bebe Italian Topstitched Twill
Bluefly is slashing prices by an extra 30% for today alone, so we thought we’d see if they had any cute suits. It did not disappoint: behold, a lovely Elie Tahari suit with a slightly odd twist: metal mesh trim. We like that it looks like a normal, boring suit from afar, but has this … Read More about Suit of the Week: Elie Tahari Black Matte Crepe Suit
We have a feeling this post is going to be a controversial one, but: This envelope-collar belted pantsuit by Tahari Arthur S. Levine strikes us as a perfect example of what to wear to a staff holiday party. It’s festive, without being in-your-face seasonal or glitzy. It allows you to maintain a sense of authority yet still party with … Read More about Suit of the Week: Tahari Arthur S. Levine Envelope-Collar Belted Pantsuit
We love, love, love the ruffled/ruched V-neck collar on this J.Crew suit, as well as the hidden singular button closure. Available in bright papaya (pictured) and “heather carbon” (a dark gray/black). The jacket is $188, and the skirt is $118.

Alas, such beauty (from Armani Collezioni!) is not cheap — the jacket … Read More about Suit of the Week: Armani Collezioni Ribbon Jacket
This week’s suit of the week is a gorgeous black-and-blue plaid number, with gold threads running throughout, from Diane von Furstenberg. Both the jacket and the skirt would be adorable on their own, or together. We particularly love the high waist on the skirt — it’s a much easier way to wear the trend rather … Read More about Suit of the Week: Diane von Furstenberg’s “Bette” Glitter Plaid Suit
We’re loving this gray tweed suit by Rebecca Taylor. Yes, some of her stuff can be a bit too precious at times, but we think this one is a feminine yet powerful suit. We love the cut of the jacket, the high three buttons, the puckering under the pockets, the fringe detail, and even the … Read More about Suit of the Week: Rebecca Taylor Tweed
Each Wednesday we’ll feature a suit we think is nice. Fashionable, wearable, businesslike, etc, etc. There are four brands that most young businesswomen purchase suits from: Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, J.Crew, and Theory. It’s actually hard to find suits that are a good “step up” from those — while you can get one of those … Read More about Suit of the Week: Monogram Gray Pinstriped Skirt Suit
