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 feels like we’ve posted a ton of splurgey items lately, so when I saw all the great suits Banana Republic Factory has right now I thought, great! This “chambray melange” suit looks fabulous for summer, whether as separates or worn together. Blue suiting separates have always been some of my favorites — they pair well with white tops for work, as well as with darker colors like black and navy, and they do well with a pop of color like red, kelly green, or purple. The prices here are crazy — the blazer is marked down to $72, and the skirt is marked down to $41; matching pants (in three different fits) are $47. Many of the pieces have regular and petite sizes available up to 16. Nice!
