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 think suits with oversized pieces can be very hit or miss — and the wrinklier the fabric gets, the more of a miss it gets.

I keep coming back to this pretty “seaglass blue” suit from Banana Republic, though — and in my experience, TENCEL lycocell fabric tends to have more of a drape, less of a wrinkling effect, than, say, linen.

This suit comes in a beigey cream as well as seaglass in regular (0-20), tall (4T-12T), and petite sizes (00P-10P), but with a lot of lucky sizes — call your local store if your size is out. It’s a best-seller, with prices marked from $130-$250 down to $99-$199.

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“), 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.)
