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. Also: we just updated our big roundup for the best women’s suits of 2023!

I always have a soft spot in my heart for blazers with this puff sleeve detail because it was so, so popular when I started the blog… back in 2008. They disappeared within a year or two, and it was really interesting because while I didn’t think I had been wearing “trendy” suits to work, I soon realized that yes, in fact, that was what they were.

So I’m fascinated that it’s swinging back around and now puff sleeves are starting to come back! Readers, what are your thoughts? If you do like the look, this flannel grey suit looks gorgeous.

The brand notes that the pockets are functional, the “deep cuffs” can be turned back for a more relaxed finish, and, in fact, the pouf at the top of the shoulder is “perfectly position to create a narrower shoulder.”

The blazer is $545, and the pants are $425, at Me+Em. (Ooh: they have a ton of wool flannel pieces, which can be hard to find.)

(Looking for something similar but less trendy? Brooks Brothers has a more classic option in wool flannel.)

In general, if you’re looking for wool flannel workwear, check Loft, Brooks Brothers, Saks (which has options from brands like Theory and Vince) and Eileen Fisher.
