Suit of the Week: Lafayette 148 New York

For 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. Also: we just updated our big roundup for the best women’s suits of 2023!

This one is a bit on the party side of suits, but it is almost that time of year… in any event, I really like this unusual print and suit from Lafayette 148 New York.

The leaf print is apparently part of their latest designs, with dresses, tops, pants, and more all featuring some variation of the leaf print. I really like it, though; it’s so much more interesting than an abstract print or a more boring, regular print.

(Something about it has a slight rock and roll vibe to it? It reminds me of this Gucci suit as worn by Jenna Coleman, #19 on this list from Harper’s Bazaar of celebrity trouser suits.)

The blazer is $1990 and available at Lafayette 148 New York and Neiman Marcus; the pants are $1498.

Looking for something similar but more affordable? I don’t know this site at all, but their Dragonfly blazer is very similar and now marked to $50 from $232.
