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.
This affordable black and white suit is calling my name — I love the V-neck collar, hook and eye closures, and stretch fabric. Black and white patterns can be slightly tougher to style than plain old gray, but pastels work well in addition to neutrals like white or black. I may be odd in that personally I don’t like to pair red with a black and white pattern because it seems too ’80s to me, but that’s just me. Another pro: all pieces are available in regular (0-16) and petites sizes. The jacket (Halogen® ‘Trace’ Stretch Weave Suit Jacket) is $79, and the pants (Halogen® ‘Trace’ Stretch Weave Suit Pants) are $49. The matching skirt (not pictured) is $39. All prices will go back up to $68-$148 after the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends.
