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

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Navy Block Piped Dress

Dorothy Perkins Navy Block Piped Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Happy Friday! This lovely navy and white dress (also available in ivory with black piping) looks like something I’ve seen from a much higher price point. The high neckline, the ladylike hem, the non-body-con fit — all are great. It’s $44 at Dorothy Perkins. Dorothy Perkins Navy Block Piped Dress

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

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
