Suit of the Week: Boden

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.

Oooh: this pants suit is gorgeous.

I love the addition of the matching waistcoat, and the t-shirt+vest combo feels very 80s-in-a-good-way (and 90s, I guess – I’m remembering outfits from both Pretty Woman and Clueless, I think).

The fabric is 96% viscose, 4% elastane, and dry clean only. They note that the pants are a “longer length (for heels)” — with all trousers like this I’d pick the shoes I wanted to wear with the outfit first, then have my pants tailored to that height.

(For my $.02: I’d say they’re tailored a bit too long on the pictured model; you should have a break in the leg by the vamp of the shoe, but the fabric of the pant should be .5″-1″ off the ground in the back.)

The blazer and pants are $260 and $180 and available in regular sizes 2-22. The vest ($120) is only available up to size 14; the pants also come in petite and long sizes. The color, confusingly, is named “fox.” (Any insights, gang?)

(In other news — April 1 is unfortunately a Saturday this year, or this suit would be a serious contender. Wow.)

(OMG and the comments!)
