Banana Republic Fitted Non-Iron Windowpane Shirt | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

A non-iron shirt is hard to go wrong with, and I like this white one with its wide windowpane pattern. It’s available in regular (sizes 0-16) and tall, and is $79.50 (although right now BR is having a sale — 30% off full-price items). Banana Republic Fitted Non-Iron Windowpane Shirt

Thursday’s TPS Report: Loveappella Seamed Wrap Dress

Loveappella Seamed Wrap Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

At first glance I thought this dress was DVF, until I looked closer at the price — $78! I’m not familiar with the brand but there are a lot of glowing reviews in there, and for $78 it’s hard to go wrong. Love the hemline, the color, and the pockets (!). Loveappella Seamed Wrap Dress

Here’s a plus-sized alternative (and another with a bolder print).

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Interwoven Striped Tweed Jacket

Nanette Lepore Interwoven Striped Tweed Jacket | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

LOVE this tweed little number, which Kate found on sale at Amazon. Yes, it’s pink, but it’s a dark pink, almost a purple, which to me means that you can wear it across multiple seasons, assuming it’s weather appropriate. Wear it with a light blue blouse (chambray for a casual outfit) or even a cream or white sheath dress or pencil skirt — I’d even try it with other pastels like pale pink, mint, or yellow. In the fall, try it with a darker purple (this dress was apparently part of the set), a navy, a dark emerald green, or a dark charcoal (as pictured). It’s kind of an amazing sale — was $448, now marked to $188 (eligible for Prime). Nanette Lepore Interwoven Striped Tweed Jacket

Psst: The sale price has jumped around a bit this week, from $161 to $153 to the current price, so it may change again soon.

Here are a few lower-priced options (here, herehere) and a few plus-size alternatives (here, herehere).

Oooh: love this intriguing faux wrapped skirt and dress from Boss Black. Love the high V-neck (and high back), the pleated waistline, the ladylike length, and the fun colors — it’s available in both orchid and black. It was $575, but is now marked to $402.50 at Bloomingdale’s. BOSS Black Donali Pleated Dress

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Collarless Woven Blazer

Forever 21 Love 21 Collarless Woven Blazer | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I have mixed feelings about Forever21 (it’s a big offender for fast fashion, but they do have a lot of very affordable and trendy clothes). This collarless woven blazer is lined, and machine washable. I love the teal (particularly with the coral/red lip!) but it also comes in your basic black. Nice! The blazer is $24. Forever 21 Love 21 Collarless Woven Blazer

Here’s a similar plus-size option (and another with just one size left).
