What a gorgeous black navy skirt suit. When we refer to wearing a dress with a cropped jacket, this is almost exactly what we have in mind. We love the cut of the suit, the texture of the fabric, and especially the pockets — “raw edge pleated trim” is apparently code for “cool”. The jacket is $219, and the matching skirt is $109. (We will admit, we wish the skirt were a smidge longer.)
UPDATE: As one reader informs us, the color is actually navy — not black. Alas! It is still a gorgeous suit, though.
