The Find: A Muted Pink Jacket

Sep 26, 2019

Colored business suits.  Once relegated to the closets of the Working Girl costume department are making a comeback.  Last week, I bought this amazing pine needle green suit from Ann Taylor.  And this week, I spotted this adobe rose suit from Nine West, and I need it.

This Nine West cropped collarless blazer is so chic.  I love the collarless style and the angular hem line.  The soft pink, like desert sand still tilts neutral.  And you can buy this coordinating v-neck sheath dress and belt separately.

Not keen to wear a slightly summery color in fall?  Pair the blazer with a deep purple tie-neck dress or burgundy trousers.

Love the style of the jacket, but not sold on the color?  This Calvin Klein suit in a pale grey and white melange has a similar cut.

    This is gorgeous, that is all.

    My office is casual, but if I needed professional office wear, this blog would be my bible. Gorgeous choices!

  3. Claire says:

    I’m a trial attorney, and three of my most complimented suits are colors. One was a deep green from the Limited (RIP), and the other two are from Talbots: a well-fitted peach houndstooth pant suit and a dusty rose skirt suit, very similar color to the one you’ve shared.

    Given that so many women are wearing cardigans and yoga pants and calling it business attire, a nicely-cut suit still looks very professional, even if it is colorful.

      Claire: the south eastern department store Belk (think Virginia, the Carolinas and down) carry the Limited clothing line in their stores. Not sure of the depth or quality but worth a web search if you miss it. 🙂

    I love the idea of a pale pink jacket; however, I work in a casual office so blazers aren’t practical. Any suggestions for pale pink jackets that are a more casual, field jacket style?

  5. TheLOOP says:

    This is beautiful! How is Nine West quality? Comparable to Ann Taylor or BR?

    • B says:

      No, definitely more along the Ann Klein/Calvin Klein/Tahari ASL lines – often all polyester. It’s more like something you’d find at Macy’s or TJMaxx/Marshalls. I’m not saying that they’re manufactured poorly, sometimes their pieces hold up better than a BR piece in a better fabric. It wouldn’t be my interview suit, but I occasionally buy trendier separates from these brands. I just wish the sizing were more inclusive in the same styles as their straight sizes.

  6. Sarah says:

    I couldn’t pull the trigger on the whole Ann Taylor green suit but I did buy the pants! Very excited for them to come.

  7. This is lovely. I wonder how it would look with my ruddy skin, though.

  8. E says:

    I bought a blush jacket off the street in London last fall and it has been one of my best purchases. I find it more easily goes from day to night than other colors, and similarly matches well black in all seasons and navy in the summer.

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]
