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.
It’s kind of crazy to me how Banana Republic Factory has been around for years and years, but, at least as far as I know, it’s only since they got a big online presence that they really started getting into suits for women. (At least, I never saw suits when I went to the outlet malls — certainly nothing more than blazers.) In any event, at the moment they’ve got another great crop of suiting separates, many of them washable, all affordable, and all very wearable. I like this sedate blue plaid number, which has possible matches in ankle pants, trouser pants, curvy pants, and a really cute pencil skirt with a tie waist detail. Also, WHOA, I just noticed that there’s a “buy one, get one free” detail at checkout, at least for blazers, pants, and skirts. Time to stock up! The pictured suiting is machine washable, available in regular and petite sizes 0-20, and the pieces are $69-$129.
Psst: Not a match, but I also like this chalk stripe dress, and there are a few lucky sizes left of this reader favorite dress we featured many weeks ago. Actually they have a ton of lovely stripey stuff right now, including this floaty sleeveless blouse and kind of all of these side stripe pants. On the suiting side of things, I like this charcoal windowpane suiting; this inverted collar linen blazer is nice, and I like this “beet root burgundy” knit blazer.
