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 for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.
Readers were commenting on yesterday’s Hunt for sweater jackets for the office that we should also remember St. John knits — of COURSE! I was perusing the offerings at Saks and came across this gorrrrrgeous purple suit. My first thought was to send it do another Northwestern alumnae I know (T, you need this)… but then I remembered, HEY, I have a blog that focuses on women’s suits. (It’s one of those days.) ANYWAY: It’s so pretty! I will admit the color is a touch too bright, at least on screen, for solemn appearances like court — at least when worn together as a suit. But add a white blouse and black pants and the collarless jacket suddenly becomes an amazing second piece… wear the skirt by itself with a black sweater and black blazer on top and you’ve got a great outfit. For creative corporate types, though, the suit looks perfect. There’s the collarless blazer (pictured), a collared blazer, a dress, and skirt, all for $595-$1795 (but try code SEPSF to get a $35-$700 gift card with your purchase); everything comes in sizes 0-18.
Looking for a purple suit but for less money? These affordable aubergine suiting separates come in sizes 2-12, this Elie Tahari suit comes in sizes 0-14, and LeSuit has a bunch of plum options now, including plus sizes.
