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 really like this draped lapel jacket from Donna Karan — it’s feminine and pretty, but professional. (I’m also a fan of the eyelash lace-trim top, but, as always, lace at the office is debatable.) Alas, note that the hand-braided belt is sold separately. The jacket (Donna Karan Draped Lapel Jacket, Black) is $1295, and the high-waisted skirt (Donna Karan Pieced Pencil Skirt, Black) is $695, both at Neiman Marcus.
