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.
As I noted in yesterday’s post on the buying suits beyond interview colors, brown has never been my favorite suiting color — but a lighter, almost reddish brown was, perhaps because I felt more comfortable wearing it with black accents. This brown is somewhere in between, but it looks like it’s gorgeously tailored, and I always love a wool/silk blend. The jacket (Max Mara Olinda Wool & Silk Blazer) is $995, and the pants (Max Mara Tondo Wool & Silk Pants) are $515, both at Saks. Readers, do you wear brown suits? What are your thoughts?
