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.
Maybe it’s just that I’m sick, but I am either bored or amused by 99% of the suits I’m finding right now — there are basics or some very WTF looks. This boiled wool moto jacket caught my eye a week ago and I LOVE it, though, so gosh darn it, I’m posting it.
I LOVE the color, and with a statement piece like this it’s almost as easy as a suit — throw it on with a pant, skirt, or dress in a neutral like black, navy, gray, or winter white, and you’re good to go. Of course you can have fun with contrasting colors — I always love red and purple together, so you can look for a lipstick or shoes (small detail) or a big detail like bright red pants. I’m also a fan of olive and purple together, as well as what I always think of as the “Pucci colors” — cobalt and purples and pinks of all shades.
The pictured moto blazer is $1490 at Nordstrom where, today, the Anniversary Sale is open for everyone! (LOTS of great work stuff left — I meant to do a roundup but am not sure that’s happening today.)
