Suit of the Week: Calvin Klein

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.

For several years now, designers have seemed to equate autumn with “plaid suit” — and there are a TON of them out there in all price ranges right now. (Here’s a very fashion-y plaid suit from a new brand to me, Lewit, at Nordstrom, for example. This gray/blush combo from Calvin Klein may be more on the boring/classic side, but my hunch is that you’d get a ton of mileage out of both of these pieces as separates — and if you want to wear them together as a suit to be “on trend,” you’re set. The jacket (Checkered Plaid Blazer) is $104, and the skirt (Checkered Knee-Length Skirt) is on sale for $59; they also seem to have a longer topper for petites (which is odd, because as a 5’4″ woman I’m usually suspicious of longer coats, but there you go). Try code FALL for an additional 20% off. (Looks like Saks OFF5TH also has the topper in straight sizes… ooh, and you can clearly see the similarities from this designer Calvin Klein topper that was $3500 but is now $890 at Bergdorf.)

Looking for plus size or petite suit? Talbots has a bunch of glen plaid suiting separates in several size ranges, and Macy’s has a plus size option from Le Suit.
