Suit of the Week

JNY Crystal Sand 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, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

Jones New York is having a pretty good sale on suits and dresses, with an extra 30% off (plus free shipping for any purchase over $75). We like this tan skirt suit, which has a really interesting texture to the fabric. We’d wear it with colorful pumps (purple or blue, perhaps) and a white shell.  Was $240, now $160, and the additional 30% off brings it to $112.  Crystal Sand 2 Piece Skirt Suit, Ships 4/8

Man, online stores have nothing by way of an interesting suit this week. Which means that we’re going to go with a lovely basic — this J.Crew super 120s combo of a peplum jacket and fluted skirt.  After all, we love a good peplum jacket, as well as a good wool like super 120s.  The jacket (Super 120s peplum jacket) is $188, and the skirt (Super 120s fluted skirt) is $118.

We like this cool black suit from Pink Tartan. Love the way the jacket is super shaped when it’s closed, love the way it looks cool and casual in that boxy Chanel way when open. We’re intrigued by the fact that it’s cotton linen and has interior slash pockets. And yes, we like the exposed zipper. The jacket (Pink Tartan Peplum Suit Jacket) is $495, and the skirt (Pink Tartan Pencil Skirt) is $295 — both available at Bloomingdale’s.

We like this basic gray suit from Halogen, available at Nordstrom’s. We like the wide trousers, the double collar, and the black buttons. We’d probably skip the untucked floral blouse and wear a pastel tee instead. The jacket (Halogen Three Button Blazer) is $138, and the pants (Halogen Wide Leg Trousers) are $88. Available in sizes 2-16.

First: Applause to a designer for figuring out that a mini-skirt is not the right look for a suit.  And we loooove this suit — but we might caution that the look is going to look amazing on a beanpole, but perhaps a bit frump for a curvier girl.  Still, for the ladies who can wear it, this is a great look — the piping makes it just a bit different, and it accomplishes being ladylike and a wee bit sexy, all at the same time.  We also like the fact that it’s a dress.  The whole thing is a tiny, wee bit of a splurge: the jacket (Piped Jacket) is $1295, and the dress (Piped Dress) is $995; both available at St. John’s Knits.

Lots of new suits are hitting the stores this week, apparently.  We really like this chic navy blue suit — we like the loose collar, the high waist of the skirt, and the texture of the shantung.  We do wish, however, that the skirt were longer than 20.5 inches (but hey, we’re sure the teenagers buying DvF suits will look great in it!).  If you’re 5’4 or below, though, we’d give it a try anyway.  The set is available at Saks for pre-order — the jacket (Jonesie Shantung Jersey Jacket) is $345, and the skirt (Chi-Chi High-Waisted Skirt) is $185.  (Incidentally — Saks is having tons of sales, with new products having hit the racks yesterday.)
