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, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.
We noticed this DKNY suit a week or so ago, and liked the style of it, particularly the fact that it’s unusual yet professional. The drop waist dress (with pockets), the twill jacket, even the use of orange, brown and black (which we’re guessing most women don’t wear together unless you’re a cheerleader for the Cleveland Browns). We weren’t 100% sold on the price, though.
Fast forward to this week, where Bloomingdales is having an amazing sale — 40% off if you spend more than $500. There are tons of exceptions (for example, Theory suits are not on sale, alas), but it’s a great opportunity to get serious deals on bags, basics, and this lovely suit. The jacket was $395, now $237; the dress was $295, now $177.
