The Best Suit Brands on a Budget

Feminine Women’s Suits: White House Black Market 

Feminine Suit

Ruffled Twill Jacket was $150, now $89.99 and Twill Pants were $90, now $59.99 at White House Black Market

Being business-appropriate, doesn’t mean dressing like a dude. The suiting at White House Black Market has the sharp tailoring of menswear suits with feminine details like ruffle collars and shaped jackets. Layer the pieces which comes in basic neutrals like black and white, over colored shells and tops.=

Beyond Basic Women’s Suits: Nine & Co

Cropped Bolero

Cropped Bolero Jacket was $50, now $29.99 and Panel Skirt with Box Pleats was $50, now $29.99 at JC Penney.

Basic black suits no longer need to be so basic. We like the Nine & Co brand at JcPenneys which gives you the ease of the black suit, with the styling of your favorite after-work outfit. Case in point: the cropped bolero shown above, which is a nice departure from your basic black jacket.
The Basic Women’s Suit: Tahari by ASL [Macy’s]

ASL Suit

Make your case in this classic line of women’s suits. The Tahari by ASL line is slightly less expensive than Tahari and come in easy to style sets. The silhouettes are designed to help define your waist, so make sure they hit at your smallest spot.

    You should add Loehmann’s to that list. With desginers like Tahari, Calvin Klein, and Jones New York always on the racks for $70-$120 a suit THAT is a bargain!

    Wow, none of these (other than possibly Jones Wear) look even remotely acceptable for an interview at a reputable company/firm.  Maybe, just maybe, they are OK at a place that encourages creativity, but for anything in banking, finance, accounting, legal, and other professional fields you simply cannot wear anything with frills, jacket belts, flowers, or any extras.  You will not be taken seriously.
