Do I need a suit for anything this coming fall? I am a girl, so I am talking strictly about school or employer related things, not any events that I could wear a cocktail dress or something similar while a guy is wearing a suit or sports coat.
I assume I will need one in the spring, but I'm trying to figure out if I need to buy one now before school starts or if I can wait until December ish.
I'd recommend at least getting a cheap suit or a businessy type of dress, so that you don't have to try and find one on short notice if something pops up. Having to find an outfit on short notice makes me pretty stressed, and it seems probable that a suit/dress could be needed at some point this year.
I'll be suit shopping sometime in the fall semester, probably around Thanksgiving as I don't even have a jacket. So here's to hoping that nothing pops up. When it comes time to shop, I'll need a guide to where to find suits in Virginia/what is appropriate for law school in terms of fit.
Yea, I think for now I'd rather have no suit than a cheap suit because those can look even worse in many cases. Hopefully nothing will come up in the next few months and once it gets cold I plan on buying a nice, plain black suit that will take me through interviews and other events. I guess it all depends on your budget appliepie but I plan on going to Richmond to Saks/Nordstrom/etc. to try and find one. I have always wanted a Theory or Nanette Lepore suit but have never had the occasion to use it.
Brooks Brothers has been having a 2 for $1500 sale on suits. I can't tell you how tempted I am.
