This season, set aside that blend-in-the-background black or navy suit for something with a bit more character. Signaling a call for classic elegance with a twist, new spins on gray suits have dominated recent runway shows. From Prada’s 1970s-inspired slim-fit cuts to Calvin Klein’s texturized leopard prints, these styles will work for any meeting or interview, but still set you apart from the workaday crowd. Power tie optional
