The Top 5 Brands for Affordable Women’s Suits
1. Banana Republic Factory
BR’s outlet section has a lot of good finds for work, particularly on the more affordable, classic side of things (including a TON of washable suits!). Note that because these pieces may be produced just for the Factory Store it may mean that there are differences in fit and quality — so keep that in mind when ordering.
We frequently feature them in our Suit of the Week because they often branch into fun colors and prints. Selections include regular, petite and tall sizes up to 20, as well as “curvy” fit pants.
If you’re a fan of their Editor/Columnist pants, do check out their matching blazers and other suiting options. As always with these brands, watch or fit — but note that Express has been stepping up their workwear game lately, so these may be a great option if you’re looking for an interview suit on a budget.
Sale to watch for: 50% off.
3. Anne Klein
Nordstrom has a few Anne Klein suits; Macy’s also carries them. They also have an exclusive line at Macy’s called “Anne Klein Executive,” but note that those are full suit sets, not separates.

4. Ann Taylor Factory
Ann Taylor has been a long-standing reader favorite, and their suits go on sale twice a year for 30% off — so if you happen to be on the hunt for a sale during that period, buy! (They also frequently have less basic suits in the sale section!)
If you’re looking for a classic suit for interview or building your work wardrobe, Ann Taylor’s Factory Outlet is a great option. They offer regular and petite sizes up to size 18, and often have additional sales.
5. J.Crew Factory
J.Crew’s factory outlet is a great source for workwear, particularly affordable wool suiting separates — inventory comes and goes, but when it’s in stock it’s pretty great. (This sweater blazer is also a LONG-STANDING reader favorite.)
