It’s been quite a while since I’ve worn a suit – years actually. Once upon a time they predominated my wardrobe – my uniform while a TV News anchor and reporter – but I replaced them long ago with separates and dresses and have never looked back. Until now. The put-together power suit has reemerged and it looks better than ever. I’m loving this refreshed version from J.Crew’s Italian stretch wool collection for its simplicity and easy elegance.  Its clean lines and modern silhouette have me wondering how I ever could have turned my back on this closet staple.
