The short jacket
For too long women's business attire has been a slightly modified version of men's business attire. This is silly because women are not shaped like men and the sack suit is inherently unflattering to women.
The above is the first short jacket I have seen in a long time, may it be a sign of things to come. It is a cotton/polyester blend, obviously I would prefer a silk/wool blend, but sometimes one must make do. I am thinking about getting a purple one to go with black slacks.
The cinched waist linen blazer also looks promising.
