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 and black can be really tricky — what are your thoughts, ladies? As someone who LOVES cobalt, I like this suit — the cut is classic, but the edge details seemed interesting and unique.
That said, some of the ways different stores have styled it have an almost ’80s quality (or, shhhh, a Star Trek quality), so let’s discuss. Is this suit something that can be saved or sunk through styling? (We’ve pictured the model from the Boss website above; you can also see it at Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s.)
For my $.02, I might try it with something white underneath it, such as this gorgeous blouse from Rebecca Taylor or this interesting white shell. Another way to break it up would be to keep the blazer unbuttoned, pair it with a slim black turtleneck, and add a scarf that picks up some of the colors.
What are your thoughts, ladies? The blazer is $495; the matching pants are $248. (There do seem to be a lot of bright blue matching pieces, but no dress — I think the Bloomingdales image includes this cobalt blue top and this cobalt blue skirt.)
