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.
So: this is an unusual choice, I admit. Still, ask yourself: if you had a casual (or creative) but important meeting and someone walked in wearing this suit, you’d think “wow, I’m impressed she has the confidence to rock that suit.” I like the little details — the squiggly lines (apparently a signature Veronica Beard stripe), the green grosgrain trim throughout, and even the way the jacket looks slightly askew when closed. I think you could get a lot of mileage out of both pieces as separates, also. The jacket (The Weekend Jacket) is $795, and the skirt (The Skinny Skirt) is $595. (If you are on the hunt for a striped suit and this one is too rich for your blood, do check out The Limited — they also have a striped knit suit that is a very bold choice.)
