Suit of the Week: Alice & Olivia

Spread the love


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.

I continue to see a lot of candy-colored suits out there — I’m not sure if this is the 2022 version of the shorts suits we saw everywhere in, like, 2014?

I always like Alice & Olivia for fun, slightly witty, elevated clothes — whether it’s jeans or a suit it feels deliberate and stylish. I am liking this happy yellow suit, although I would recommend a top under it (unless you’re Lady Gaga or something). I’d go for a scoopneck or V-neck blouse or tee under the suit, or perhaps a turtleneck — I think a crewneck or boatneck would look odd — and would suggest white, gray, or even a deep blue. I usually don’t like black and yellow together (bzzz!) but I think this yellow is bright enough to avoid bumblebee associations.

The boyfriend blazer comes in sizes 0–14 and is $395, and the matching high-waisted pants are $295, both at Alice & Olivia’s website.

(They’ve also got a great sale on, with savings up to 75% off — the coat section is particularly noteworthy, as are the blouses. (Love this black-and-white coat!)

Hunting for something similar to the featured yellow suit in plus or petite sizes? This yellow suit at BR is available up to size 18, as well as petite sizes, and Eloquii has a lovely yellow blazer up to size 28.
