Suit of the Week

Tahari Suit, Seersucker Jacket and PantsFor busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

Amazingly, it won’t be summer for a few weeks still — and yet we’re digging this seersucker suit.  We like the pieces together, but would probably wear them just as much apart:  the blazer on top of a navy or black sheath dress, or the seersucker pants with a white blazer and white tee.  The suit is on sale, also — it was $280, now $140 in sizes 2-18.  It’s also available in plus sizes 14W-24W, on sale for $160.  Tahari Suit, Seersucker Jacket and Pants

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Grey Knit Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Grey Knit DressWe’re a sucker for this kind of dress — v-neck, empire waist but belted, in a comfortable jersey in a sedate color. And Shabby Apple’s price point doesn’t hurt, either — $78 is a great price for a dress. Not too shabby, Shabby Apple. Not too shabby at all.  Grey Knit Dress

Coffee Break: Donald J Pliner “Dolly”

Donald J Pliner - Dolly (Red/Red) - FootwearThere are a number of cute heels in the Donald J Pliner sale at 6pm.com today, including these lovely red slingbacks, marked 75% off.  We like that they seem lightweight and airy, and think they would be a fun pop of color to add to an otherwise sedate outfit of blacks or grays.  They’re available in bronze as well, in sizes 5.5 through 9.  Were $315, now $78.75.   Donald J Pliner – Dolly (Red/Red) – Footwear

N.B. Peep-toe slingbacks will not be appropriate for all offices — know your office!

Splurge Tuesday’s TPS Report: Tie-Front Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Rachel Roy Tie-Front DressNeiman Marcus has a number of great pieces on sale, including this amazing wool dress from Rachel Roy (Neiman’s exclusive). We love the round neckline, the A-line skirt, and the way the belt is tied in a neat knot and left to hang.  We’d wear it with a brooch, as well as a cuff, perhaps, and skin-toned shoes.  Was $1095, now $383 (sizes 2-6 only).  Tie-Front Dress

Memorial Day Weekend Open Thread

Haaaaaaaaaapy long weekend!  Something on your mind?  Chat about it here.

This week’s weekend recommendation comes from Bloomingdale’s Big Brown Bag sale:  this lovely, breezy dress.  We’d wear it with flipflops to a BBQ party in a friend’s backyard, or strappy, heavy sandals for a night out at a bar with an outdoor space.  Was $88, now $70.40, take another 20% off with code EXTRA20 to bring it to $56.
