The challenge: style a suit using items from an Express store in under 15 minutes. Okay, I added on that last part (I was in a hurry that day) but I did recently team up with Express to style a look using pieces from their women's suits collection. My very first suit came from Express. My mom bought it for me when I was in college and I wore it to interviews for my first two professional jobs. (And of course, I still have it!) So needless to say, I am a big Express suit fan. This season, I am especially loving their widespread use of red, camel and tweed (picture below) and my favorite pieces were the ones I'm wearing because of how unique they are! I loved the two-toned blazer, and the cropped, pleated pants reminded me of the pants everyone is wearing in London right now. I couldn't resist pairing them with my favorite scarf top (I have had my eye on it for awhile) and some red pumps for a complete head-to-toe Express look. These pieces would also look great with a sequin shirt underneath and would be the perfect office-to-night look (just remove the jacket!). For a job interview I would add a black collared shirt and some conservative black pumps.
