Suit of the Week: Alaïa

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.

I don’t think we’ve ever featured Alaïa for the Suit of the Week, you guys! (We’ve featured bags and dresses, and I always remember my friend Jackie’s post about her amazing LBD from Alaïa. Also, Clueless, duh.) ANYHOO: I don’t think I’ve noticed gorgeous suiting like this from the brand.

There’s something about it that looks classic, but modern. I think it’s the padded shoulders and straight-leg pants for the modern touch, while the “minimally-detailed,” oversized double-breasted blazer with a nipped-in waist has classic, almost vintage vibes — almost like what Katharine Hepburn or Rosalind Russell would wear today. Love.

The blazer is $4,040, and the pants are $1280. (You can also see the blazer with wide-leg pants here; I really prefer the straight leg pants — how about you?)

(GAH: love this skirt. Ok, and this belt.)
