The richness embodied in these suits makes me feel like I’ve just left an interview and definitely landed the job! My mother always told me “Every woman needs a good suit” and, well, while there may not be many occasions on which I will need one, I will remember this rule: a tonal suit and blouse just screams “don’t mess with me“!

The suit selections above( from left to right) Jil Sander, Hugo Boss, and Burberry. are just some of my choices as “influential” pieces you can buy. But if you’re like me and can’t afford to spend the cheese before making the bread, try these more affordable option:

From top to bottom:

1. Grey Herrigbone Blazer- Topshop.com

2. Grey flared Herringbone Trouser Pants- Topshop .com

3. Studded sheer Blouse- Topshop .com

4. razor back Vest- Express.com

5. Skinny Belt- Urban Outfitters.com

6. Dolce Vita Heels-Urban Outfitters.com

Your suit can even double as a good weekend shopping outfit by pairing it with a V-neck Tee from American Apperal.com, Some Striped Chucks and some fun neon sunglasses, both from urban outfitters.com.

One more tip: Think less Ellen Degeneres and more Annie Hall!
