Prior to being a stay at home mom I was an advertising executive with a HUGE suit collection.
I have always loved the J Crew suit. I like the fact that most of their suit jackets have matching jackets and either pants or skirts.
The Seersucker set is no different. This jacket is classic and for J.Crew, inexpensive. It comes in either soft graphite or sour lemon seersucker. The suit comes in sizes up to 16.
I did try on the pants for this suit and I found that a women in a size 16 should probably not wear a seersucker pants, it just was not a flattering fabric. Fortunately for me the pleated skirt fit like a charm!
I like the seersucker collection because I can wear it in the spring and summer on those days when I need a suit but don't want to break out the classic blue wool. It is light and airy, and still looks professional.
This suit is a must buy for the business women with spring and summer meetings.
