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.
The styling here is what first caught my eye — I don’t think I’ve seen a tunic worn with a skirt suit ever look quite as chic as it does in the first image that comes up on the Bloomingdale’s website. But in general, it’s a great suit, and I can see a woman getting lots of mileage out of both of these pieces. I like the slight detailing on the skirt — it’s difficult to see online, but there is reportedly a “vertical panel at sides, fine ribbed fabric at center wool and back.” As for the jacket, it seems spot-on with the military trend everywhere this season, but not so much so that you can’t get a TON of wear out of it. The jacket (DIANE von FURSTENBERG “Larmina” Knit Jacket) is $385, and the skirt (DIANE von FURSTENBERG “Marta” Riding Twill Patch Pencil Skirt) is $225.
