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.
Happy Wednesday! I always like a light blue suit — it isn’t too twee when worn together (just a bit more color than a light gray, really) and the pieces tend to be workhorses when worn as separates. (Just be sure to dry clean the pieces together so they fade evenly.) This light blue tweed suit from Austin Reed looks lovely. Pair it with neutrals like white, black, creams, grays, navies — even browns. If you’re feeling bolder, try it with a burgundy accent in fall, or a kelly green or even a pastel in the spring. The jacket (Austin Reed Blue Tweed Jacket) is $325, and the skirt (Austin Reed Blue Tweed Pencil Skirt) is $196.
Here are lower-priced and plus-sized alternatives.
