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.
Some people don’t like three-quarter sleeve jackets, but I’ve never had a problem with them — particularly as someone whose arms are apparently just a *touch* too short for most off-the-rack blazers, if they’re an evil, they’re a necessary evil for me. With that in mind, I really like this pique suit from Laundry by Shelli Segal — the price is right, stretch pique is a great fabric for summer, and I’d probably wear the pieces as separates as much as I’d wear them as a suit. (If you have a summer internship coming up that requires a suit, this would be a great one to expand your collection or even to be the suit you keep in your office.) Due to a big Memorial Day Sale happening, you can take 40% off the entire site, including clearance, so this suit is crazy affordable: The jacket (Laundry by Shelli Segal Notch-Collar Pique Jacket) was $225, but is now marked to $99; with the sale it comes down to $59 (!!!); the skirt (Laundry by Shelli Segal Textured Pique Pencil Skirt) was $145, but is now marked to $69, but with the sale comes down to $41. Happy shopping, ladies… :)
