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.
Here’s a question for the readers: What are your your favorite stores for affordable suits now that The Limited has shuttered (Chapter 11) and other places are closing down too (or drastically limiting their suiting options)? Do you have any to recommend? This suit at Express is a nice casual option. I like that it’s a linen blend, and I like the pretty blue shade as well. You could wear the pants or blazer by themselves, as well, and in general this looks like a good suit. There are only a few reviews, but they’re positive. In general, Express (in my experience) tends to be fairly curvy-friendly. The jacket (24-Inch Linen Blend One Button Jacket) is $138, and the pants (Mid-Rise Linen-Blend Barely Boot Columnist Pant), which come in regular, short, and long, are $79. (Buy 1, get 1 50% off.)
Because some of the sizes are sold out or pretty low in stock for this suit, we’re also sharing the 24-Inch One Button Jacket, which is $128 and comes in 11 (!) colors, including celestial blue, festive green, cranberry, an orangey red (actually called “red”), and more. In general, there are a lot of fun colors at Express if you’re looking for an affordable suit.
Here’s a plus-size linen-blend blazer.
