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.
Ok, avert your eyes from the shoes (if you can), and focus instead on the pretty, pretty suit. The seams and pleats, while admittedly a bit corset inspired, still strike me as something that would be totally appropriate to work so long as other details are kept professional — for example, wear a drapey blouse instead of a camisole, and, you know, regular pumps instead of shiny silver shoes. Love the long hemline, and and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a similar fabric — it’s one part tweed, one part jacquard. Lovely. The jacket (Nanette Lepore J’Adore Jacket) is $498, and the skirt (Nanette Lepore
Embrace Me Pencil Skirt) is $248, both at Saks.
