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.
You have to do a bit of sleuthing, but Red Fleece — Brooks Brothers’ younger, hipper, more affordable line — does in fact have suiting separates. This is definitely a casual suit, but I like it — the boxy jacket (wool, of course) has a fun printed lining and a striped wool undercollar. As for the skirt, I like the pockets as well as the reversible self-belt (the other side is navy; they’ve pictured it with the preppy, striped side showing).
Psst: Reiss is offering an extra 10% off its sale items today — tons of great picks.
