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, 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 suit caught my eye last week, and even though I have a few concerns about it, I was still drawn to it enough to post it today. First, the good: I like the dark charcoal color, the slight peplum flounce effect to the jacket, the fitted look in general, and the ladylike skirt length. The bad: I’m not sure about that pattern — could be great, but it could also be a bit too loud. Still, it’s a good price if you’re interested in a grayish skirt suit — now marked to $179, down from $280 (sizes 2-18 still available). The suit (Tahari by ASL Suit, Two Button Jacket & Skirt) is on sale for $179 at Macy’s.
