Thursday’s TPS Report: Tailored Peplum Jacket

Topshop Tailored Peplum JacketOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Topshop isn’t a brand I usually think of for workwear, but I’m loving not one but two blazers from them, both at Nordstrom: this lovely peplum jacket (available in four colors, pictured in grey) and this other open-front blazer. Both are really reasonably priced ($96 and $90, respectively) and they look hip and easy to style. Topshop Tailored Peplum Jacket

Suit of the Week: ASOS

ASOS Crepe Suit | CorporetteFor 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.

Everyone seemed to really love the color of the Escada suit from a few weeks ago, including me — so when I saw this (much) less expensive version from hip retailer ASOS I had to pass it along. Love that bright pink! As of this writing it’s available in sizes 1-14, with matching ankle pants. For work, I’d wear it as styled, with a gray skintight croptop — ha, just kidding! I do like the gray, though — I think it does a better job of muting the pink (as would a cream or a beige); I’d worry a black or white would just make it pop. I might try it with orange or red accessories if I were having fun, or a single metal color to complement my shirt. For some reason I’m seeing silver with a gray shirt, and gold with a cream/beige top. (Ooh: if I were wearing the blazer as a separate this would be a great time to dress in different textures of the same color, like gray.) The blazer (ASOS Blazer In Crepe With Slim Lapel) is $85.74, and the pants (ASOS Cigarette Pants) are $47.64.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Wool Tulip Dress

Boden Wool Tulip DressOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Boden has some great sales going on right now, including this gorgeous wool tulip dress — with sleeves! I like the nice high neckline, and the fact that the skirt is designed to be a much looser fit than one normally sees on this kind of dress. There are plenty of sizes left in the purple (pictured), limited sizes left in black, and all of the sizes left in a really adorable gray-and-black polka dot print. It’s available at Boden for $87, marked down from $218. Boden Wool Tulip Dress

Coffee Break: Corinne Croc-Embossed Pump

Pour la Victoire Corinne Croc-Embossed Pump | CorporetteLast Call has these 4″ heels in two colors (burgundy, pictured, and black), and considering that I keep bookmarking them, I thought I’d pass them along. I like the buckle and cutout details (and the tiny almost-t-strap! cute!) and the croc-embossed leather. They were $250, were then marked to $199, but with today’s sale they come down to $70. Nice! Pour la Victoire Corinne Croc-Embossed Pump

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Tabitha Jacket

Club Monaco Tabitha Jacket | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

A white(ish) blazer is one of those things that I think every working woman could use in her summer wardrobe — it’s a versatile, classic piece to throw on top of almost everything. This sleek collarless blazer from Club Monaco is calling my name. It’s $250, available in sizes 00 - 12. Club Monaco Tabitha Jacket

Coffee Break: Lendra Pump

Rockport Lendra Pump | Corporette

Yes, yes: we all know I love a good purple pump. I like the sleek look and the mix of suede and leather (to say nothing of the adidas technology) in these nice Rockport pumps. They’re on a great sale, too — they were $110, but are now marked to $55 at 6pm.com. (There’s a very similar peep-toe purple heel for around the same price. As always, though, know your office — peep toes aren’t appropriate at every workplace.) The pictured pump is $55. Rockport Lendra Pump
