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.
Happy Wednesday! Velvet suits are a really popular option in the fall (as are velvet blazers on their own), but they can be a lot of look — particularly with a rich, beautiful color like this Norma Kamali suit has — so I’ll start by suggesting this may work better for the office as separates, rather than a whole look — unless you work in a creative office. (But you do you!) This color is amazingly lush and interesting, and I like the darts and the seams, and it seems affordable, all things considered. Note that the pants are a pull-on style — I’ll leave it to you guys to debate whether this is the suit version of a Juicy Couture velour tracksuit from the ’90s. But I think it’s a fun, comfortable way to do a strong, bold, velvet look. The suit is available at Shopbop in sizes XS–L. The jacket (Single Breasted Jacket) is $265, and the pants (Velour Boot Cut Pants) are $140.
The selection for velvet suits in plus sizes is not great, to say the least, but right now Talbots has two bright red suits in plus sizes. (Hmm, in announcing their plus-size collection for fall, Talbots appears to have moved away from their “woman” and “woman petite” size ranges.)
