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.
Colorful suits seem to come in waves — about five years ago there were a TON of purple suits for the taking. Then there was an abundance of cobalt suits. More recently, it seems like I’ve seen a lot of great burgundy suits. So while I’m not sure if purple suits are coming back in style or not, they are on the rarer side right now — and I will say that this is a great-looking suit if you’re on the hunt. I primarily love the jacket, pants, and sheath dress (particularly the sheath dress! what a great basic!). There is a skirt, but I’ll admit I have mixed feelings on flouncy skirts with suits, and if I got it would probably have mine hemmed just a bit shorter (just at the base of my knee bone). For what it’s worth, all of the pieces are also available in solid black. I like that it comes in regular, petite, plus sizes, and plus size petites, and that they’re all pretty reasonably priced. The jacket (Seasonless Crepe Single-Button Jacket) is $199, the skirt (Seasonless Crepe Full Skirt) is $99, the pants (Seasonless Crepe Wide-Leg Pant) are $119, and the dress (Seasonless Crepe Sheath) is $159.
