Suit of the Week: Banana Republic

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 never been a fan of double-breasted suits… but I don’t mind the ones I’m seeing this season. (What are our collective thoughts on adding a belt to a double-breasted suit, readers? There’s one picture from BR with two belts added, which seems unnecessary, but hey.)

As often with Banana Republic, this suit is a washable wool (huzzah!), available in sizes 0–20 (yay!) — the pants are available as trousers and a slightly cropped straight fit, and they all come in short, regular, and long sizes. (The blazer also comes in regular and tall.)

The pieces are $98–$209 at
