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’re normally a bit iffy about colored suits, but we do seem to have a thing for purple ones. (Actually, we just realized how much of a thing we have for purple suits — we promise, this’ll be the last one of ’09.) Today we like this deep, deep eggplant suit from Anne Klein — we like the interesting collar details, the double buttons in the front, and the tailoring of the jacket. We also like the sale: the suit (Anne Klein Suit 2-Piece Skirted Suit) is on sale at Dillards for $107 (marked down from $179), available in sizes 2-14.
