If this is your price point and you want something more traditional, Lafayette 148 is a great label  as is Theory.

If you already have J.Crew and BR covered in the suit department, have a look at Nordstrom’s Classiques Entier brand.

    That all white suit at the top is killer. I only have darker suits that work year round as my office is pretty casual so I don’t wear suits too often. That said, having a white suit for summer would be nice.

    Love and adore the white suit: I wear little jackets & pencil skirts all the time, so that suit is right up my alley (I’m a classical musician, incidentally). I have several pieces from Theory, Classiques, Tahari,RL, all of which wear like iron and require just a little tailoring if any for my figure. I’m not a full-on curvy-girl, but I do have a feminine figure, and although I like JCrew & BrooksBros very much, their cuts are too “straight-up-and-down” for me & require much tailoring, so I just look to them for inspiration sometimes. I throw in some of the solid and dotted and striped Shaped-Tee-Shirts from Lands End, which fit me like a dream & also wear like iron–I highly recommend them.

    Thanks for your blog: I recently found it through an old Feather Factor post, & am enjoying it very much, Belle.
