Suit of the Week: Theory

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.

Oooh: this plaid suit from Theory is one of the bestsellers at Bloomingdale’s, and it’s on sale. The long blazer + cropped pants is a combination I don’t think we’ve seen a ton before — it feels like long blazers are either being paired with long pants or (yes, yes) shorter skirts. What are your thoughts on the combos, readers?

The blazer was $495 but is now marked to $297, and the pants are now $123 (were $205). Most sizes are still available in sizes 00-12.

Hunting for something in bigger sizes? J.Crew’s stretch Italian wool suiting (blazer, dress, and skirt at least) is 25% off full price today, with lots of sizes available in 00-24.
