Suit of the Week: Roland Mouret

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’ll be honest: I really, really (really) loved Mouret’s dresses from a while ago. They were architectural and interesting and structured… basically everything that 2023 is not. (They’re much harder to find than they used to be — at NET-A-PORTER it looks like most of the dresses are for evening, but this one could definitely be a desk to dinner dress if you need one.)

In any event: the brand’s suits are beautiful, also — this burgundy one is a great example. It’s classic, the color is amazing, and I like the way the pants have some flow but aren’t overly wide.

The blazer is $1100, available in UK sizes 6-16, and the pants are $650.

Looking for something similar? Elie Tahari has lucky sizes of a cordovan suit on sale, and Madewell has some lucky sizes of a cabernet blazer on sale. (This may well be a case where the fancier designers are already onto the Fall 2023 collections and will have lots of burgundy in stock, while the more affordable stores are still trying to get rid of Spring 2023 inventory, without a lot of burgundy…)
