Suit of the Week: Hobbs London

red tweed skirt suit  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 really like the fact that Bloomingdale’s carries British brand Hobbs – there are so few stores in the US it’s great to have a work-appropriate, often machine washable workwear brand more readily available. This red tweed suit looks great (despite the fact that the skirt looks mighty short — I’m hoping that’s a super tall model…). The color is more wintry than festive, and I think you could wear both the dress, blazer, and skirt (if you dare) as separates as well — in fact, the dress is pretty awesome by itself. The jacket (Florrie Piped Jacket) is $375, and the dress (Florrie Textured Ribbon-Detail Dress) is $325.

Looking for a plus size option? Talbots has several suiting options in a deep burgundy, and this “glazed tweed” jacket is an interesting option as a separate.
