Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Betty Jacket

DSquared Betty Jacket | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’ve linked to numerous affordable versions of bright yellow blazers, but I like the look so much I thought I’d link to a fancier version — this DSquared blazer looks bright and happy, while still being professional. I’d wear it with shades of gray (dark gray pants, light gray blouse) or perhaps a simple navy/white combination. The blazer is $628 at Zappos (down from $1255). DSquared Betty Jacket

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: “Work the Right Angle” Dress

ModCloth Work the Right Angle Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This dress from ModCloth reminds me of two other dresses we’ve featured recently (one by Calvin Klein and one by Black Halo, the latter now available at Cusp), but this one has the low low price of $49.99. It also has 217 reviews and a four-star rating on ModCloth… and if you click through the comments and look at people’s pictures of themselves wearing the dress, you’ll see it looks cute on a wide variety of body types. Hooray! ModCloth Work the Right Angle Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: Mixed Media Tweed Jacket

Halogen Mixed Media Tweed Jacket | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Cute! As always, I love anything that mixes black and navy, and I like the mix of styles here as well — the classic tweed and fringe look very new with the zipper, colorblocking, and shoulder details. I like the black/navy the best (pictured — skip the leather skirt and plaid button-front for the office, perhaps), but I’m also a fan of the gray and black version. It’s part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — currently marked to $98, then $148 after the sale ends on August 4. (See our other workwear picks here.) Halogen Mixed Media Tweed Jacket

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Single-Button Blazer

Anne Klein Single-Button Blazer | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Because apparently I can’t let this one go, I present you with today’s option for a super-bright pink blazer: one from Anne Klein, a brand that I’ve always been fond of. The single-button blazer is $129 at Macy’s, available in sizes 0-16. (It’s also available in petite sizes, and I believe this cowl-neck sheath dress — which I’ve been coveting anyway — matches, at $99.) Anne Klein Single-Button Blazer

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Tijana Stripe Skirt

Ted Baker Tijana Stripe Skirt | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, stripes aren’t typically my thing, but I really like the white/navy/lime colors of this skirt, and the interesting diagonal details, and the two front slits. It strikes me as preppy and fun, but professional and kind of effortless. It was $225 but is on sale at Bloomingdale’s for $157. Ted Baker Tijana Stripe Skirt

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Ottoman-Rib Peplum Jacket

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

Ha cha cha. I love this dark grey wool ottoman-rib peplum jacket, in part because the unevenness makes it so cool — that asymmetric placket, the not-quite-round neckline, the raw edges… very cool. It’s definitely a fashionista piece, and it comes with a price that only a fashion dilettante could love: it’s $2,885 at Barneys. Lanvin Ottoman-Rib Peplum Jacket
