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.
The colorblocking trend continues to go strong — like Monday’s Splurge dress, this suit uses colorblocking for a waist-whittling effect. I like the mix of light and dark grays, and the two button jacket with narrow lapels also has a very of-the-moment look to it. The matching dress is gorgeous all by itself, too. The jacket (BOSS Black ‘Jolia’ Jacket) is $595, the skirt (BOSS Black ‘Venina’ Skirt) is $295, and the matching dress (BOSS Black ‘Dalana’ Dress) is $595.
Psst: As readers have noted in the comments, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open for cardholders — lots of great Fall 2013 pieces marked down before they even go on sale. I’ll be doing my sale picks in a few days when the sale opens up for us regular folk (i.e., those of us too lazy to get Nordstrom cards), but I thought I’d mention it now.
