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.
Burberry is doing some… interesting things with suits lately. I’m not sure I’m a fan of all of them, but they’re… definitely interesting! (Look at you go, Burberry!) I love the blazer here, although I’m less sure about the pants — but let’s get to the blazer first.
If you can’t see it, this is a wool suit with ribbed knit inserts along the side. I love this for the blazer — it kind of reminds me of the collared James Perse shirts that were super popular a few years ago, where the ribbed knit sides meant that they basically stretched as much as you wanted and were perfectly oversized while still being fitted. (I’m actually kind of excited they’re still around; they disappeared for a while!) I’m also, as always, a sucker for an interesting mix of textures.
The pants I’m less of a fan of — the rib knit down the sides feels too big (it would be so cool if it were like a tuxedo stripe instead of half the model’s thigh) and they have the weird front-slit trend happening which, well, if it just goes away entirely by the time we come out of these strange days I can’t say I’d miss it.
