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.
First: Applause to a designer for figuring out that a mini-skirt is not the right look for a suit. And we loooove this suit — but we might caution that the look is going to look amazing on a beanpole, but perhaps a bit frump for a curvier girl. Still, for the ladies who can wear it, this is a great look — the piping makes it just a bit different, and it accomplishes being ladylike and a wee bit sexy, all at the same time. We also like the fact that it’s a dress. The whole thing is a tiny, wee bit of a splurge: the jacket (Piped Jacket) is $1295, and the dress (Piped Dress) is $995; both available at St. John’s Knits.
