Dressing Women Who Work

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’ve been drooling over Veronica Beard’s structured, cool jackets for years, but I think this is the first suit we’ve featured of the brand’s. (Nope, I’m wrong.) The big thing her brand has been known for in recent years are the inserts/dickies — the theory being you can buy one beautifully tailored blazer and then zip in a different layer beneath it, such as what looks like hooded jacket, a turtlenecked vest, or more — which is all fine and good but for the fact that you can also just, you know, wear a hoodie, a vest, or more under a regular blazer and just pocket the $500+ you’ll spend on the endeavor with Veronica Beard. (Hers admittedly look cooler, though, and obviously give you a sleeker, more tailored look since you’re not adding extra fabric all the way around.) This blazer doesn’t have the “insert” feature, but I like the cool red thread running through the fabric, the extreme skinnyness of the pants (know your office, of course) and the great example the stylist is setting here pairing the cropped pants with the booties. (Perfection!) The jacket (Eva checked crepe blazer) is $595, and the pants (Farrow checked crepe skinny pants) are $350.
