Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Rimini Tailored Dress

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

Reiss Rimini DressI’ve said before that I think light gray pants are even more versatile than white pants for spring and summer, and this light gray sheath dress looks amazing for the same purposes — you can wear it with a pop of color (pastel or bright in spring, and start introducing darker reds and olives in late August and September as you get excited about fall) or neutrals (navy, black, white). I love the seaming, and I think the cap sleeves look perfect for a summer blazer or cardigan. The dress is $360 (and does have matching pants and a blazer). Reiss Rimini Tailored Dress

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Short Tweed Structured Top

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

Express Short Tweed Structured Top (and: Express's Semi-Annual Sale!)Express is having their semi-annual sale right now, and there are some crazy deals to be had. I’m liking this structured tweed top, where for once I actually like the exposed zipper in the back. I’d wear it with a long pendant necklace (midriff length at least), and a pair of ankle-length pants and ballet flats for a casual day at the office. I might also try it with a bright skinny belt (belted a bit high) and a pencil skirt. It was $59.90, but is now marked to $29.99 (and take an additional 40% off in your cart).

Coffee Break: Delia Asymmetric Patent Pump

Alice + Olivia Delia Asymmetric Patent PumpI was perusing Bergdorf Goodman’s “just in” items the other day and suddenly found myself obsessed with these pumps (pictured on someone modeling leather leggings). On closer inspection, I fell even deeper in love — the textured patent leather! The adjustable ankle strap! And, of course, that asymmetric vamp strap. Lurve. I’m less in love with the 4″ heel, but hey.  They’re $360. Alice + Olivia Delia Asymmetric Patent Pump

Thursday’s TPS Report: Tangerine Herringbone Blazer

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

Zara Tangerine Herringbone BlazerZara has so many cute yellow blazers right now, but this “tangerine” herringbone blazer strikes me as just perfect — love that bright, saturated pop of color, and it feels super chic and modern when styled with all white. And it’s only $79 — score! — in sizes XS-XL. Zara Tangerine Herringbone Blazer

Suit of the Week: Boden

Corporette's Suit of the Week: BodenFor 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 for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

An orange suit is a bit outside my comfort zone, but a) this does come in a more muted navy/beige palette, and b) I’m kind of loving the orange/pink combo, at least as separates. (I really wish they’d shown the pencil skirt, at least, with the jacket — I think they’d look lovely together. I’d probably stick with a simple white or black top beneath the suit, but that’s me…) There are a lot of pieces in this line: the blazer (Chancery Jacket) is $198, the pencil dress (Aldgate Dress) is $228, and the pencil skirt (St. Pauls Pencil Skirt) is $118. Not pictured but also available: a v-neck faux wrap dress (Greenwich Dress) for $218, and an A-line dress (Haymarket Dress) for $228.
