Talbots Jackie Fit Ponte Jewel-Neck JacketFor 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.

So I never thought I’d say this, but: I really like this pink suit. I think it looks classic but also slightly playful — and I think the pieces would work great as separates, as well. It’s nice that there are a lot of pieces to the set (two jackets, a sheath dress, an A-line skirt, and bootcut pants), and that they’re all on sale (and available in black as well). The jacket (Talbots Jackie Fit Ponte Jewel-Neck Jacket) was $169 but is now marked to $94.49, and the skirt (Ponte A-Line Skirt) was $99, now marked to $55.49.
