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.
Cobalt suits seem to be on a 3-4 year cycle — I’ve seen them regularly enough over the years that at this point I think they’re approaching “everyone who wears suits should have one” status. Not interview material, mind you, but perfectly appropriate for a regular workday whether as a matched suit or broken out and worn as separates. This polyester/wool cobalt blazer and skirt from Boden is lovely — I really like the deep shawl lapel of the jacket and the streamlined goodness of the skirt. And: huzzah for a fun lining. The jacket (Claremont Blazer) is $189, and the skirt (Claremont Skirt) is now $105. The dress is down to lucky sizes only in blue and is $140 (down from $200).
