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.
For today’s suit pick, we’re loving this linen/cotton blend from Ann Taylor Loft, available only online. We like that it comes in navy, white and a creamy beige, as well as that it’s available in sizes 00-18 in regular and petites. We know, short-sleeved jackets get a bad rap sometimes, but this one truly does strike us as a perfect solution for a situation where it’s ridiculously hot and you’re still expected to look presentable. The jacket (Linen/Cotton Jacket with Waist Tie) is $79.50, and the skirt (Linen/Cotton Pencil Skirt) is $59.50. Matching cropped pants (not pictured) are also available in two fits for $69.50 each. (Julie Linen/Cotton Cropped Pants and Marisa Linen/Cotton Cropped Pants).
