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 is a lovely suit — at least in theory (no pun intended, honest!). The boucle knit has an interesting striated look, and the leather trim on the pockets and sleeves adds a lot. I even like the boxy fit to the jacket, and think it looks lovely as a separate (as shown here). The skirt, sadly, is where we get to the “theory” part — why is it so short? Who, exactly, do they think is buying this piece? (And why is “dialog” spelled differently in the name?) Odd, odd — but perhaps for a woman with shorter legs this suit would be perfect. The jacket (Theory ‘Dorian – Dialogue’ Jacket) is $465, and the skirt (Theory ‘Francia – Dialog’ Boucle Skirt) is $245, both available at Nordstrom.
