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!

We’ve pictured a lot of women’s suits on this website, but I must say: I think this is our first GOLD suit. I kind of… love it? It’s very maximalist and fun, and I can see it being great for a holiday party or (the blazer at least) for giving a talk.

Is it appropriate for the office? Unless you work on the set of Selling Sunset or a soap opera, probably not, but HEY…

I did have a moment of hesitation over whether this is a Mother of the Bride type of dress… (in fact many years ago I posted something similar for one of our April 1 picks!) I’d love to hear your thoughts, but something about the structure of the blazer feels like it’s too business-y for a wedding. Maybe it’s just the way it’s styled here (and the miniskirt) but it feels youthful in a way the other suit does not. Thoughts, readers?

The blazer is $4290 at Neiman Marcus (available for preorder), and the skirt is $1650.

Looking for something similar? I’m honestly surprised that there are some options! This faux leather suit from Milly is probably the closest, but Ramy Brook, Reiss, and All Saints have more subdued options. On the plus side of things, I’m not a huge fan of the blazer, but Eloquii does have a lovely gold brocade number. It’s not a suit, but Chico’s has a gold brocade topper in regular and petite sizes 00-22. Oh, and: new-to-me brand Johanna Ortiz actually has a pretty similar option.
