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 2024!

Boden has some really fun prints right now, including in suits. As Tim Gunn would say, it’s a Lot of Look for some of the prints (like, er, this or this) — but this brown suit with a pink check pattern is unusual and interesting, but not OTT.

Boden also features a lot of pants with a track stripe down the side, including the matching suit pants here — this can be a make or break feature for a lot of people! I’m often not a fan, but something about the combination of brown and pink redeems it for me.

They’re picturing it with a pretty hot pink sweater; I’d also wear this with a boring white top and maybe a pale blue top — how about you, readers?

The pictured blazer is $235, available in regular and petite sizes 2-22; the matching pants are $140. (They have a very similar brown and blue check print on sale, but note that it’s wool and the blazer is much more shorter.)

Hunting for more brown suits? Some of our favorite brownish suits for women include this “mahogany” suit from Reiss, this brown linen from Brooks Brothers, and this very academic-looking mid-brown suit at Banana Republic. (For plus sizes, there aren’t any great options at the moment – Woman Within has a double-breasted brown check suit, as well as a single-breasted brown suit.)
