I got mine at Nordstrom.  Not cheap though.

…Yeah.  I was going to suggest Jcrew, but it is expensive.  My mom said Sears or JcPenny has good suiting.  Kohls is good, but I think that’s only in the midwest.  If you have the time, you can go to TJMAXX and search, but that can be a headache.

The men’s suits at Kohl’s are good, not sure about the women’s though.  They are nationwide, not just the midwest.

I got mine at Macy’s.  I’ve seen cute stuff at Express as well.  I know some women swear by their “editor” pants.

H&M. Relatively cheap (as in under $100) and fits great!

Express suits are ok, can usually get them fairly cheap, but really a suit is an investment.  I got my first suit from there and it served it’s purpose, and got me my first job (well partially!).  Now the one I wear mostly is from Ann Taylor.  Still wear the pants from the old Express suit though.  The editor pants are great!

Boston Store sometimes has nice suits for women which won’t make you look uber old, but they do tend towards oddly colored suits sometimes (like aqua or fusia!). I don’t know what size you are, but Lane Bryant (size 14+), while expensive, has some really nice suit seperates in store the other day. i almost bought my interview suit there! Have you tried Target or Old Navy online?

Macy’s sometimes has some good sales on suits – but they can be hit or miss depending on the store.

I don’t know if you have T J Max or Marshalls, but you can sometimes get high quality suits pretty inexpensively.  Ross is another place to try.

Another thing is to look into tailoring it.  Overall if the suit fits you really well, it will look great.  An expensive suit that doesn’t fit won’t do much for you!

I wear suits for work, and my favorites are from Ann Taylor and Banana Republic. They look stylish and professional at the same time.  I have had several of them for 5 years, and they are still in great shape! They can be expensive upfront, but the quality will make them last. Agree with the suggestion of tailoring as well.  Having a suit that really fits you well is important for interviewing.
