The below content concerns the 2019 Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale.
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 don’t know why, but I prefer a microdot to a polka dot pattern — one feels fresh and interesting while the other feels childlike or wholesome. Plus, there’s often a textural difference, like here where it’s a jacquard. So I’m happy to see that this lovely classic blazer from Ted Baker (part of the just-started Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale) is a microdot. The jacket is marked down to $209 from $350, and the pants (not pictured) are $94.
Looking for something similar in plus sizes, or for a more affordable price? I can’t quite find anything else in a microdot or pin dot, but this heathered navy blazer has a similar “still sedate but not your interview suit” vibe and comes in four size ranges, including petites and plus sizes.
