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.
Oh, it’s fun to dream some days: and laugh if you will, but this Armani suit occupies some of my dreams. Love the fit (particularly the way the jacket flares out a bit at the bottom, with the effect of creating or emphasizing your waist), the pinstriped rose applique, and the single button. The skirt seems to fit well (even though the flounce at the back seems so, I don’t know, 2003 to me? maybe I just need to get over that), and the pants look flattering. The jacket (Double-Pinstripe Jacket) is $1375, the skirt (Double-Pinstripe Skirt) is $455, and the pants (Double-Pinstripe Trousers) are $595 — all available at Bergdorf Goodman.
