Best Suiting Pieces on a Budget: Reader Advice

With the presidential campaigns in full swing, style watchers (including us) have been paying particuarly close attention to the fashion hits and misses of the potential First Ladies (as well as candidate Hilary Clinton of course). Not surprisingly, the women in question (Michelle Obama, Cindy McCain) are frequently seen in suits—but we have to say, in this particular campaign their choices are less mother-of-the-bride dowdy and more Washington DC power-player. We like it. But where to find suiting pieces that pack a punch and are kind to your bottom line at the same time? For high quality, if you catch a sale, Bloomingdale’s is a worthy stop, and for everyday budget-friendly suit separates, we love New York & Company. Tell us, though—where are you heading to pick up your power suit pieces for less these days?
