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.
I first noticed the three button blazer with darts and peplum — which turns out to be the most unusual piece of a fairly standard black suit. It all looks well made, though, and I like the many separates offered, all of which are made from a triacetate/polyester blend; the bottoms are lined in acetate and are machine washable; the blazers are lined in viscose and the care instructions are to dry clean. At this price point I’d put the suit in the same league as Theory and some of the Hugo Boss lines, which surprisingly is a fairly small league — lots below it (Ann Taylor and the like), and lots above it (Armani and the like). There are two blazers (BASLER Three Button Pleated Back Blazer and BASLER Short Two Button Blazer), both $495, two pencil skirts (BASLER 24.5″ Pencil Skirt and BASLER 26″ Pencil Skirt), both $250, and a straight leg pair of pants for $275 (BASLER Diana Pants) and a wide leg for $295 (BASLER Bella Pants). All of the pieces are exclusive to Bloomingdale’s; all are available in black, and some are also available in navy, sizes 34-50.
