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.
We are heading into the “holiday suiting” portion of the year, where there are a ton of velvet, sequin, and shiny jacquard options. (Don’t worry, I’m collecting them all as updates to our guide on what to wear to a holiday office party — the “festive blazer” widget is particularly full.) So finding a classic, beautiful suit that’s new on the market is a bit of a task. But WOW — this pink/gray pinstripe from Dolce & Gabbana is the stuff dreams are made of. First, I am suspicious of pinstripes in general, but particularly from the more bargain brands — getting the seaming right can be really difficult. Second, the pink pinstriped lines on this are stunning — a really lovely feminine take on a traditional menswear pattern. Finally, not only is there an awesome, matching classic sheath dress, but the matching pants are slim ankle pants, devoid of those weird details that limit wear (such as, say, a kick flare or sailor buttons). As you would expect, you’ll pay for a D&G suit — prices range between $795 and $2295 for the pieces — but dang is it a lovely suit.
Looking for something similar but for less money? A lot of these plus-size pinstriped options at Lane Bryant are getting good reviews, and this pinstriped suit is on deep discount at Nordstrom Rack. (There are also verrrry lucky sizes left of this pinstriped Boss suit on deep discount.)
