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.
Sometimes, all you want is a simple, high quality black suit. I like this Elie Tahari suit, exclusively at Nordstrom. It’s got a single button, but that’s pretty much the only slightly odd thing about it — the shoulders aren’t too pointy, the lapels aren’t too wide, the fabric isn’t patterned or shiny. It’s just a wool suit. Lovely. The jacket (Elie Tahari Exclusive for Nordstrom ‘Ava’ Jacket) is $278, the pants (Elie Tahari Exclusive for Nordstrom ‘Theora’ Pants) are $178, and the skirt (not pictured, Elie Tahari Exclusive for Nordstrom ‘Bennet’ Skirt) is $158.
