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.
I’ve been admiring this sophisticated double-weave cotton/poly suiting for a while. The good news: I’ve been admiring it so long that it’s now marked down. The bad news: only limited sizes seem to be left, so YMMV. But I love the curvy Talbots Kate fit, and the fact that it’s lined. This navy looks particularly vibrant, but it’s nice that it’s also available in black, white, and a beige “natural” in regular, petites, woman, and woman petites’ sizes. Love the matching A-line skirt also, even though I’d probably ask the tailor to sew the pockets closed — seems like a reasonable price for a classic shape. The jacket (Talbots Kate Fit Double-weave patch-pocket jacket) was $199, now $111.74, and the skirt (Double-weave A-line skirt) was $99, now $55.49; other pieces (including a pair of capri pants and a three-button jacket) are also still available and marked down.
