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.
Leather is huge for fall, and a lot of it looks way too Mad Max (at least to me) for the office. That said, this Elie Tahari leather-trim peplum jacket kind of looks awesome — modern but still professional and ladylike. I actually love it as styled (all black/gray), but that’s me. The jacket (Elie Tahari Martina Leather-Trim Jacket) is $448, and the pants (Elie Tahari Logan Pants) are $198, both at Saks.
