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.
I was sure I’d featured this one before, but I don’t think I have — I love this shawl collar suit from Ann Taylor. The “grey mirage” color is interesting yet basic, and lately I can’t stand full-length sleeves — the 3/4-length sleeves just look so much lighter for summer, and then you don’t have to worry about your sleeves being the perfect tailored length. The suit is an online exclusive, currently available in sizes 00-18. The jacket (Polished Cotton Shawl Collar 3/4 Sleeve Jacket) is $158, the skirt (Polished Cotton Seamed Pencil Skirt) is $78, and the pants (Signature Polished Cotton Trousers) are $88. Note that AT is offering 40% off on select pants (including these), no code needed. (It’s also available in black for petites.)
