My class has to go swimming soon and I don't have any other swimsuits because some I can't find and some that don't fit. My mom has tried Sears, Wal-Mart, Winners, The Bay, and pretty much a lot of places but they don't sell swimwear or at least she can't find any.
Mom says it's because the Mom says it's because the weather is getting colder and that its close to winter so they don't sell swimsuits at that time.
Can you reccomend a place to go buy swimsuits? My mom didn't have time before to take me to get a new one. Are you sure that you want to delete this answer? Do you have a Big 5 store Sears and stores like Sear JC Penny's have a catalogues you may find some on clearness. Scuba diving stores, If you live near any resort and of course the Internet. On the Internet check out Hawaiiswimsuits Searswimsuits. Jewel teal is my favourite with camel. Burgundy, ivory, cobalt, kelly green, aqua, navy all work as well.
Pastels like mint, rose, lemon should work too. Camel, as a neutral, goes with literally everything. It depends on the specific shade of camel as to which specific shades of other colours will be best.
A good bet is white or cream silk blouse depending on your skin tone, with red lipstick. Very fresh and stylish. I also really like camel with baby blue. I think any light, pastel colors would be great with a khaki suit, so think light pink, baby blue, mint green.
I think cream or white would obviously be doable as well. Silk scarves in the same colors and light fabrics would also probably do well to put under a khaki suit. I think dark brown might work as well, depending on the other outfit choices.
I have a khaki suit. I wear it with short sleeved, light, form fitting sweaters. I have two I got years ago at Gap of all places. One is light pink and the other is a baby blue. Add pearls, brown shoes, and it looks nice.
I have one light camel colored suit and one kahki suit, and I think they are among my most versatile. You can go preppy as mentioned above by wearing with pastels. Or, one of my favorites is to wear with a simple black form fitting top and go minimalist in a chic calvin klein sort way.
When I go this route, I usually wear cute brown or metallic flats. Oh, also, depending on the cut of the suit, you could go light monochromatic with a floaty ivory silk top underneath. You can wear almost any color with a khaki suit since the suit itself is neutral.
Eggplant purple looks quite rich with khaki and can also be used with black and gray suits. I bought their eggplant colored one to go with my khaki work pants and I wear it allll the time. Oh, I would love to own a khaki- or camel-colored suit one day! A smaller plus designer I like who sometimes does suiting is Darren Trentacosta. Can you speak to that? Thank you for posting about larger sizes.
I am in need of some new work clothing, and have been at a loss. I bought one recently, as have several of my newly minted attorney friends. It might just be their current line or the fabric they are using, but we all have holes in the back of the skirt. Now there are new holes. Horrifying, considering the money spent. For the cut I agree they are beautiful and hands down the gold standard.
But yours truly, along with about four friends, are not at all impressed with the quality. Update to this — I bought the skirt over a year ago at Bloomingdales. The first time the holes appeared, I took it to the tailor.
The second time, when I took it back to the tailor, she told me I should try to take it back. I took it to Bloomies yesterday, without the receipt, and they gave me a brand new skirt with no questions asked.
I LOVE that place. I also had issues with Theory stuff—looked great, but wrinkled immediately and the dye of the jacket bled onto my white silk blouse. They took it back, but I think there are issues with the quality with theory. I am in the market for a new suit now. It finally gave up the ghost.
I really like extended-tab pants … does anyone know where I can find them? I like the extended tab because the regular one has a tendency to twist and poke out during the day, even if it fits fine.
Several of my Talbots suit pants have the extended-tab on them. I think Jones New York does some too. Crew is my favorite go-to suit. I always buy the slacks, skirt, and jacket so I can get the most out of the suit. I would LOVE to not have to tailor all of my slacks! Have you tried Talbots? I second the recommendation for Elie Tahari, and would add Lafeyette as well. Both are in the priciest category, but can often be found discounted at Bloomingdales or Nordstrom.
I live in NYC and am having trouble finding good suiting for my non-petite small frame. Will try Macys tonight. Kat, can you include at least a few plus size options in your where to shop recommendations on these style guide posts?
My favorite for plus size suiting is Talbots. Especially their Womans Petites. Plus they sometimes have some pretty amazing sales if you hit them at the right moment. I need a womens petite on top and a regular womens on the bottom. My one caution is that their unlined suits do not hold up. I still will buy them, but only at deep discounts. Just want to say.
For many corporations, where one is not a lawyer, a skirt suit would actually scare employers off. In some companies and industries, tech in particular, a skirted suit for an interview is too formal, and therefore outside the culture. I have to agree, and add into that geographic area. In my city women only wear skirt suits for formal charity luncheons or dinners, or to very dressy weddings, and then the suits are the kind of thing Corporetters have said are not office-appropriate — bright colors, tweed or boucle fabric, feminine detailing, etc.
The only women you routinely see in navy, black or gray skirt suits are religious missionaries. They have pants curvy, modern, and signature styles , jacket, and pencil skirt, and occasionally a sheath.
I am a 1L, and just had to buy a new suit for interviews. Law school has, sadly, led to some weight gain and I refused to squeeze myself into a slightly too small suit! It is charcoal grey, single button, very plain but cut really nicely. It can be a challenge to find suits that are flattering to my figure without being either too boxy or too sexy-looking. This one hit just the right chord, and since it was separates, I was able to go with a 10 on the bottom and an 8 up top and avoid tailoring.
I have gotten multiple compliments, both from the people in my career services office and my colleagues. I even had an interviewer mention that they liked it.
Hey, thanks for posting that! I too am 5. My main problem is to get the suit to be long enough to cover half my heel! I hate pants that look too short and I like wearing inch heels.
Skip the inch heals in the interview and thereafter professionally unless you want to be mistaken for a secretary. Sorry if that sounds harsh. I once had a partner nix an otherwise-stellar candidate because she wore a red suit to interview, too. They are nicely tailored, well-made, comfortable, and last a long time. I bought a gorgeous dress from the store in Ottawa. Will definitely head over to the NY store for suiting options. My two favorite suits are from Benetton — for some reason, the shape of those suits really fits me.
But recently, the quality of the fabric has gone downhill — wool suits are increasingly hard to find. For the super petite Corporettes out there, meaning size OO in Theory, please share what conservative skirt suits you wear! I know we discussed this in an old thread, but I do not recall suggestions other than Theory. Please feel free to discuss suits at diverse price points. Plus they are in separates so you can get a larger jacket if needed I need their 4.
I find the longer-styled jackets look more professional for me I have long legs so it balances the look. I actually had surprising success looking for suits today at Brooks Brothers. Their OP is really tiny — and their OP button down was even too small! I was happily shocked!
My suits are all Lafayette They are very pricey but worth it. They also have plus sizes. For tops, I prefer a short sleeve shell. Jones New York has a good basic silk blend short sleeve shell in a variety of colors. You can also find Lafayette suits at a discount on sierratradingpost.
Pricey but well worth it. They are having a great sale right now. Jones New York makes a good basic silk blend shell in a variety of colors. Great post and just in time for me. My big problem though is what to wear underneath it. I like to wear a sweater vest or a suit vest on top of my button downs- it solves the gapping issue and helps the collar stay in place better.
I recently discovered Tocca, very pricey, but the wool is substantial and conservative, the styling is interesting but not young, and i dont hate myself when i have to go wearing suits for a week or so straight.
I think this is a more conservative look than sweater under suit although I wear that a lot in the office on more casual days. A lot of people have commented that these suits only fit a certain body type.
What about a dress and suit jacket? Perhaps with a very light, thin silk scarf? I think it really depends on your profession, and where you work.
However, I would not wear a dress and suit jacket to an interview. My tip is that bigger-busted ladies should look for more buttons on a suit jacket preferably 3-button suits so as to de-emphasize the bust. Even when I was a size I would have had to buy a size in Theory for my hips and then tailor in the waist — so I mean hourglassy. But, as they say, ymmv.
Operating out of the same factory space in East Williamsburg since , Greenfield takes a time-honored, no-frills approach to making suits.
Alton Lane has become a well-oiled machine in the menswear scene, and has cornered a mainstream market on bespoke suits in New York. Alton Lane uses 3-D body scanners to take the custom fit experience one step further in the pursuit of perfection. You probably already have Bloomingdale's in mind when in the market for a Vince sweater or fragrance from Marc Jacobs.
But the iconic department store is quite the destination for suits that feel fresh and quietly fashion-forward. There's also a wide price range: Bloomingdale's has two locations in the city: Lamb created her hand-tailored brand in , and has built a solid reputation on sophisticated, high-quality looks that fit beautifully. Her goal is to give women the same selection as men when it comes to a balance of sophistication and style.
The selection is definitely wide, from casual suits you can mix and match to elegant jewel-toned cocktail suits.
