Suit of the Week: Boss

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.

At long last I think it’s finally happening: we’re returning to wider trouser legs. Don’t get me wrong, it was really fun to have skinny trousers, ankle trousers, “straight” trousers — but I feel like a wider leg is eternally classic, and personally prefer the way a bootcut balances out my wide hips. At the fanciest stores I’m seeing a lot of high-waisted trousers, invariably styled a bodysuit or a cropped top — but the beauty of a trouser like the one pictured is that it’s easy to pair with a hip-length blouse, sweater or fancy t-shirt. The jacket, pants, and dress are all on sale as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for $169-$397 — after the sale, prices will go back up to $255-$595.

Coffee Break: Medium Liz Reversible Visetos Leather Shopper

I’m generally not a “logo bag” kind of girl, but even I’ve noticed the huge popularity of MCM’s line of logo bags. Their leather is soft and supple in real life, and if you like the look they’re definitely more lux than the logo bags you see at suburban malls. If you’ve been ogling one, now is the time to strike: they’re part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, with a shopper option (pictured) down to$429 (it’ll be $650 after the sale ends), as well as a more subtle tone-on-tone pink backpack for $499; it looks like some of the other MCM bags they had in the big NAS have already sold out. I do like that this one is reversible; the inside is a fun, slightly psychedelic gingham. Medium Liz Reversible Visetos Leather Shopper

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Shrunken Houndstooth Suit Jacket

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

Another shrunken blazer for you: this fun houndstoooth suit jacket from 1901, which I believe is a Nordstrom brand. A full suiting look in houndstooth can be a lot of look, but if it’s just the blazer it can be a really nice pop of print. I’d wear this with your basic black sheath dress, or go for some of the styling options we noted on Tuesday’s workwear post — voluminous top like a billowy white tank and skinny ankle pants — or high-waisted voluminous trousers with a close-fitted top. The blazer is $89.90 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but will go back to $139 after the sale, and is available in petite and regular sizes 0-16. Shrunken Houndstooth Suit Jacket

Looking for something similar in plus sizes? This houndstooth duster cardigan is very cute, and this glen plaid jacket has slouchy goodness.

Coffee Break: Lowe Bootie

Ooh: I feel like a low-heeled, pointy-toed booty like this is going to be great for fall. Wear them with bare legs on the weekend, with tights and pants to work — you can even wear them with both skinny pants and some of the wider legs coming out now. I like the little curved dip at the top, and I like the solid block heel — and I always feel like Franco Sarto is one of the most comfortable mainstream brands. Nice. The boots are in black and white (very glam, if that’s your thing) for $114.90 — after the Anniversary Sale ends on Aug. 5 they’ll go back up to $178.  Lowe Bootie

Coffee Break: Hutton Ankle Strap Shoe

A friend just called with a dilemma: she needs to interview for high level positions and is looking for something other than orthopedic shoes to wear (with confidence) for the interviews. I get it — fussy feet are no fun. Of course everyone wants to wear sleek looks like pointed toes and heels… but sometimes life hands you lemons (or bunions, or plantar fasciitis, or weak ankles, or…) So: I was recommending this kind of shoe to her for interviews, the strappy flat. The 1″ heel is a comfortable height, the strap keeps it on your foot comfortably, and there’s still a little flash of skin on your vamp. (These shoes also make great commuting shoes or everyday shoes.) They’re available in three colors, sizes 5-11, for $129 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — after the sale ends they’ll go back to full price at $195. Hutton Ankle Strap Shoe
