Best Officewear, Corporate

  • MaxMara

    813 Madison Ave., 212-879-6100

    While those still climbing the corporate ladder can do very well at Theory, the search for the ultimate grown-up power suit ends at MaxMara. Merino wools and cashmeres combined with classic cuts and directional tailoring mean the suits are sleek but not without personality. This spring, opt for the white linen Batavia (similar to twill) pantsuit with tuxedo jacket ($1,065), or a pin-striped stretch-wool tailored pantsuit with wider “spear” lapels ($1,515), and say bye-bye to boxy.
