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 womenwhich should be as classic and basic as you get – instead, this feature is all about the slightly different suit that’s fashionable yet professional.
But it’s an interesting/fun suit even in black — it’s unusual to see a velvet suit for women, and the proportions (double breasted and wide leg) are very modern.
The blazer is $225 and the pants are $125; it is available in sizes 2-14.
Looking for something similar in plus sizes? There are a TON of corduroy pants out right now (I honestly don’t remember seeing that many!) – but only a few are still in stock in plus sizes. Here is a peach from Eloquii and a light blue from ASOS basket. Eloquii also has one double-breasted blazer in red with cut out trousers.
I’ll collect some of the other corduroys out there in the widget during the reveal…
Psst: Aaaah! Found matching blue trousers (for COS velvet suit) but can’t figure out how to link to the kit.
