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.
There are a ton of summery suits out there right now — we considered two separate white suits (which ultimately struck us as a little too reminiscent of a grandmother’s wartime “I’m getting married” suit) and a seersucker suit (which we may still post at some point). Ultimately, we fell in love with this gorgeous set from Rebecca Taylor, although we do wish it were just a skirt instead of a dress, both to give it much more wearability as well as to lessen the drycleaning requirement. Still: the gray is flattering, the “blouse” is interesting, and the jacket — man, we love the ruffles and the ribbon trim on the jacket — the whole effect is detailed and interesting without being too girly: a tough feat when we’re talking ribbons and ruffles. The jacket (Rebecca Taylor Ribbon Trim Jacket) is $395, and the dress (Rebecca Taylor ‘Work-to-Date’ Mock Two Piece Dress) is $375; both available at Nordstrom.
