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.
The Fold always has such interesting clothes — professional but just a bit different. The wrapped, asymmetric blazer on this navy suit is stunning — kind of reminiscent of something Marlene Dietrich would have worn, but modern and edgy all the same. Lovely.
I am almost always on team “YES you have to wear a blouse beneath a blazer!!” but in this extraordinarily rare case I might vote for a tank top or very low scoop neck tee instead.
(Fun fact I just learned: The co-founder of The Fold “comes from the competitive world of consulting and finance,” and has a Cambridge PhD in Molecular Biology and an MBA from London Business School.)
On the hunt for something similar but more affordable? In plus sizes, Eloquii has a number of tie-front blazers (and a ton of joyful, happy suits for summer), and the Smythe wrap blazer is under $300 at Saks (!). Amazon and Macy’s have slightly boxier, less fitted asymmetric blazers. Meanwhile, for a giggle, check out Ssense and ASOS. (Actually, I somehow came across these “janties” from Ssense and shared them in the Corporette staff Slack to LOL…)
