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.
Lots of new suits are hitting the stores this week, apparently. We really like this chic navy blue suit — we like the loose collar, the high waist of the skirt, and the texture of the shantung. We do wish, however, that the skirt were longer than 20.5 inches (but hey, we’re sure the teenagers buying DvF suits will look great in it!). If you’re 5’4 or below, though, we’d give it a try anyway. The set is available at Saks for pre-order — the jacket (Jonesie Shantung Jersey Jacket) is $345, and the skirt (Chi-Chi High-Waisted Skirt) is $185. (Incidentally — Saks is having tons of sales, with new products having hit the racks yesterday.)
