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.
This week, despite a very attractive purple skirtsuit at Neiman Marcus, we’re going with this lovely lightweight wool suit from Banana Republic. We like the light gray color, as well as the beautiful striped lining. For our money, we’d buy the jacket, skirt, and pants — the matching dress, while interesting, has sleeves that remind us of a superhero for reasons we can’t quite pinpoint. The blazer (Women’s Apparel: Lightweight wool blazer) is $198, the skirt (Women’s Apparel: High-waisted lightweight wool pencil skirt) is $80, and the pants (Women’s Apparel: 215 Martin Classic Grey Trouser Pant) are $98.
