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. Also: we just updated our big roundup for the best women’s suits of 2023!

Suits with dresses instead of skirts can be difficult to find — in the past few years they’ve been few and far between. Akris’s current offerings at Nordstrom are positively bursting with suits with dresses, though — so if that’s your preferred way of wearing suits (and you have $3500+ to drop on a suit), do check them out.

There were a lot of great options — the popped collar on this bright pink number called to me, as did the sleekness of this red option — but eventually this pictured tealish blue number won out.

I love the color of the skirt suit (because of course I do), but it’s the details that really get me — the darts near the pockets, the matching buttons, the cupro lining — and the fact that beyond the lining it’s 100% cashmere.

The to-the-neck collar is interesting, and also features prominently in Akris’s current options — we haven’t seen this look in a long while, so it’ll be interesting to see if it trickles down to the mass market stores, especially the younger ones.

Gorgeous, gorgeous. I also think both pieces would be versatile as separates, also.

The blazer is $2990, and the dress is $1990, at Nordstrom.

Looking for something similar but more affordable? There aren’t a ton of options, but M.M.LaFleur has a pretty sapphire suit, and — with totally different vibes — Brooks Brothers has teal corduroy suit. In plus sizes, check out this pretty Moroccan blue suit at Eloquii.
