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 the thing about women’s suits: the pants are usually passable — but very rarely awesome. This is despite the fact that most women, like men, take off the suit jacket and wander the halls in just pants and top — so the pants really should be awesome. Still, I don’t think I’ve ever found a suit that I stopped to look at just because the pants were so great. At least, not until this week, when I found these amazing navy pants. They’re basic, sure, but you don’t want fancy pants — just flattering, awesome pants, which these look like. Then, I noticed that Net-a-Porter said “coordinating item available.” So I clicked on over, and it turns out it’s a suit. Hooray! Even though the suit is never pictured as a set (because apparently many Net-a-Porter customers like to guess when ordering $1000 worth of clothes online?), I’m featuring it this week anyway because the pants really do look amazing. The jacket (Joseph Sir wool-twill blazer) is $695, and the pants (Joseph Rocker wool-twill wide-leg pants) are $375.
