Finding the perfect power suit can be tricky when navigating the world of stiff, uncomfortable, and unbecoming blazers and slacks. If there’s one thing you should never do, however, it’s settle for a mediocre suit. These seven women’s suits are the ideal blend of power, class, and comfort to keep you motivated and on your game all day long.
1. Kasper Chevron-Print Blazer & Pencil Skirt
Women’s skirt suits that don’t feel stuffy and restrictive can be hard to come by. This Kasper skirt suit, though, is printed with faded chevron arrows and complete with an open-style blazer to keep it chic, modern, and always classy.
To buy: Macy’s, Blazer: $74.99, Skirt: $59.99
2. J. Crew Fitted Blazer & Tie-Waist Short In Shirting Stripe
Who says a power suit can’t include shorts? This striped blazer and shorts combo is a fantastic women’s suit choice for even the hottest summer days.
3. Express White Pant Suit
Express’ Mid Rise Columnist Ankle Pants with the 24-inch One Button Jacket makes for a white pant suit that HRC, the pantsuit queen, would be proud of. The chic silhouette makes it appropriate and polished for your next meeting.
4. TopShop Metallic Suit Jacket & Trousers
A powerful women’s suit doesn’t always have to be neutral in color. A bold, metallic outfit might be just what the suit doctor ordered to make a regular day in the office a little less ordinary.
5. Calvin Klein Bell-Sleeve Blazer & A-line Skirt
Put a little more flare into that women’s skirt suit by substituting a bell-sleeve and a flowy A-line skirt in for a more traditional silhouette. The whimsical combination is one you can rock with ease and confidence.
To buy: Macy’s, Blazer: $129; Skirt: $89
6. ASOS Fluted Sleeve Blazer & Paperbag Pant
If you’re looking for a more unconventional power suit to help you take on your next big project, this Oasis fluted sleeve women’s blazer and paperbag pant combination is ready to carry you through. The flowy features and pale pink color give it an extra feminine touch to help you look and feel your very best.
7. Theory Stretch Wool Jacket & Flare Leg Pants
Every woman needs a classic blank pantsuit in her wardrobe. This classic wool jacket paired with a flare leg pant creates a total power suit that will have you ready to tackle any situation. The versatility of the pieces allows you to mix-and-match them with other parts of your wardrobe, too.
