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.
This shadow houndstooth suit is a bestseller at J.Crew (AND on sale today), and I think it’s great — the pencil skirt and blazer would both be great as separates but I also think they look nice together. In fact, if I were traveling for work I might bring a black suit and this one and then mix and match the pieces with different accessories. There’s a matching Going Places dress with that interesting crop detail. The pieces were $118–$248 but are now marked to $89–$185 today. Alas, although J.Crew has been increasing their size range considerably lately (with lots of sizes up to 24), this suit is only available in sizes 00–16.
This “sparking constellation tweed” suit at J.Crew is very similar and does come up to size 24; if you like the houndstooth but want something more affordable, Talbots has lucky sizes left of a stretch houndstooth jacket for $63, with matching pants for $40.
