Dorothy Perkins SOTW

Corporette's Suit of the Week: Dorothy Perkins Grey Textured SuitFor 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.

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know much about Dorothy Perkins — but if you’re on the hunt for an affordable gray suit with trendy details (peplum, narrow lapel, colorblocking) you could do a lot worse than this one. I’m intrigued by the fact that it’s machine washable — readers, have any of you put a blazer through a washing machine? I also like that it’s available in sizes 2-18. The blazer (Grey textured suit jacket) is $59, the pants (Grey textured slim leg trouser) are $44, the dress (Grey textured pencil dress) is $44, and the skirt (Grey textured pencil skirt) is $35. (If you buy all four pieces, the entire suit is $182.)
