Suit of the Week: Boss

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 want to call this suit tweed, but instead it’s a really interesting, textured fabric “made from Italian jacquard richly textured with a check plaid and diagonal ribbing” — if you zoom in you can see little raised black squares on a black check plaid pattern. I think mixing textures is a really sophisticated but easy way to bring a lot of contrast into an otherwise sedate wardrobe, so I love fabrics like this — try pairing it with a fluffy cashmere or a matte silk blouse, for example. Love. The jacket (Kanelli Jacquard Jacket) is $445, and the skirt (Manelli Jacquard Pencil Skirt) is $265. (There’s also a matching dress.)

For plus sizes, this long jacket + dress has a similar vibe but is almost sold out (and probably a bit too fancy for work); this $53 jacquard dress is lovely.

Love this black jacquard skirtsuit -- the pieces are versatile enough to wear as separates or together, and a great way to get into mixing textures for a sophisticated work outfit.
