Ask Belle: Affordable Suiting for Interviews
Apr 8, 2015
My campus is hosting job interviews in two weeks and I need a suit. Can you help me find something for $250 or less for both pieces? Every suit I find just looks like an old lady would wear it. Maybe you can find something better.
Thank you, Ava
My favorite source for affordable, quality suiting is the Halogen brand from Nordstrom. Here are the best pieces from their spring line.
I own the same suit in black. The jacket is a great style if it suits you, but peplums aren’t for everyone. I recommend trying on the jacket to see if it works for you. You can also have the peplum tailored to take out some of the bulk. This suit also comes in petite and plus-size.
This grey-white pattern suit is a nice choice for spring and summer. It has a classic cut that will work on most figures. It also comes in plus-size.
If you need a basic suit for interviews in a conservative field, this Halogen suit is a good place to start. It also comes in a khaki color. Not my favorite hue, but on some skin tones, it really works.
