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!

I like a stripey blue and white suit ALMOST as much as I like a light blue suit for summer.

They call it a ‘cotton-rich blend fabric” (?), but the only material listed is cotton. I tend to think of seersucker as a specific KIND of cotton (with a bit of a puckered textured), but this looks lovely by itself. I like the loose, straight pants, and those patch pockets in the pants look plenty big.

The blazer is on sale for $460 (was $575); the pants are $280 (were $350), both at

Psst: Not on theme for today, but the Sephora Sun Safety kit just came out — we’ll take a closer look in a future Coffee Break.

Hunting for something similar? ‘Tis the season for light blue suits, so there are a lot out there — look for nice ones at Reiss, Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor (“blue echo” and lapsis); you can find plus sizes at Eloquii 1.State (lucky sizes), and Wildfang (sporty). If you’re hunting for a shorts suit (or, perhaps, just a blazer), Cinq à Sept has a nice “French blue.”
