Suit of the Week – Donna Karan

Donna Karan Belted Stretch-Wool Jacket & Pencil SkirtFor 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.

Graphics aside (it’s like they’re trying to sell a black suit in a darkened room! what the heck?), we like what we CAN see of this great suit from Donna Karan.  Love the jacket’s off-shoulder collar and high belt, and the contour seams of the pencil skirt strike us as flattering (even if they might require an underlayer of Spanx).  The jacket (Donna Karan Collection Belted Stretch-Wool Jacket) is $1,495, and the skirt (Donna Karan Collection Pencil Skirt) is $550, both available at Bergdorf Goodman.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Topper Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Donna Karan Topper JacketIn keeping with our apparent newfound love for electric purple (seriously, no idea why but we are seeing it everywhere for fall!) we like this textured wool jacket from Donna Karan. We like that it’s big enough to fit over a suit jacket, if need be, but it will also look amazing with a little black dress. There’s something about the billowy softness that is relaxing without being messy. It’s $2295 at Bergdorf Goodman. Donna Karan Topper Jacket
