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’ve written of my love of light gray pants before, but this light gray suit takes the cake, particularly for spring and summer. I like the grosgrain trim detail on the pockets and lapels of the blazer — as well as the pockets of the matching pants and the side of the skirt. For tops, I’d wear it with just about any jewel tone (especially a garnet or ruby red) as well as a dark neutral (dark gray, black, navy) starting around mid-February, and move to pastels and creams as we move into March and April. The blazer (Halogen Trim Detail One-Button Suit Jacket) is available in regular and petite sizes 0-16 for $138, and plus sizes 14W-24W for $148. The pant (Halogen Straight Leg Suit Pants) and skirt (Halogen Trim Detail Suit Skirt) come in regular and petite sizes for $88 and $68, respectively, as well as plus sizes for $98 and $78.
