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!

Cotton suits made from chino material are great for summer because they’re breathable — but they do tend to wrinkle easily, so I would not recommend them for a big day.

That said, J.Crew Factory has this classic suit in “sail blue” (pictured) as well as beige and black, and it’s such a happy shade of blue I had to post. There is a matching skirt as well as a wide-leg chino pant — all pieces are below $120 today.

On the more casual side, but they also have a matching chino short and a few tops in the same “sail blue” — if you wanted to do a monotone look, they’ve got you covered.

Psst: If you’re hunting for colorful suits, note that light blue suits for summer are some of the easiest because you can wear them as you would a light gray suit. As of April 2024, we’re seeing nice ones at Reiss, Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor (“blue echo” and lapsis), J.Crew Factory, and Eloquii and lucky plus sizes for 1.State; Wildfang also has some sporty light blue options. If you’re hunting for a shorts suit (or, perhaps, just a blazer), Cinq à Sept has a nice “French blue.” (You can see light blue suits we’ve featured previously here.)
