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

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Tie-Neck Blazer

DSQUARED tie-neck blazer | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Happy Monday! I love the vintage vibe and fitted look to this herringbone blazer from DSquared. One of the great things about pieces like this is that if it isn’t “trendy” to begin with, it never really goes out of style. Love that wide foldover collar, the big buttons, and — hooray! — that bright yellow/lime lining. It’s $1,180 at Zappos. DSquared Tie-Neck Blazer

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Boatneck Fitted Top

Old Navy Boatneck Fitted Top | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This is the kind of top that looks like it could be a real find, particularly for the price — it has more than one interesting detail (boatneck, exposed zipper at the nape, shirred shoulders, and longer sleeves), and it’s slightly fitted. I like the solid colors like this “electric youth” pink (pictured) or the black (c’mon, you know me), but it’s also available in a solid white, a pink stripe, and a blue stripe; it comes in regular, tall, and petite sizes XS-XXL. It was $19.94 but is currently marked to $14 (and is only available online). Old Navy Boatneck Fitted Top

Thursday’s TPS Report: Black and Green Tank Dress

Calvin Klein Black and Green Tank Dress with Belt | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

For some reason I always think of Calvin Klein dresses as lucky finds at TJ Maxx or the like — they often come down to this price range (around $50) and in many ways are great dresses. This black sheath dress is 22″ long from the waist, and I love the bright teal stripe detail — it’s interesting and flattering without being crazy bright. I might try it with a bright purple or red blazer if I were being adventurous, but I think it would also look great with a gray or white. The keyhole detail at the neck is also great. The dress was $134, but is now $43.50 at Bluefly. Calvin Klein Black and Green Tank Dress with Belt

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Tarnished Serpent Mixed-Media Dress

Isla & Co. Tarnished Serpent Mixed-Media Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This dress reminds me of the reader favorite Ivy & Blu dress — the high V-neck, the defined waist, and the slight A-line to the skirt. This one is not a faux wrap, and has a serpent pattern on the bottom half, but (as someone on team “animal-print-is-a-classic”) I like it even more. The dress was $198, but is now marked to $69.30 at Last Call. Isda & Co. Tarnished Serpent Mixed-Media Dress

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Savannah Speckled A-Line Dress

Lafayette 148 New York Savannah Speckled A-Line Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I love a basic black sheath dress — and this speckled stretch knit from Lafayette 148 New York has just enough of a punch to really elevate the basic, but keep it extremely versatile. It’s on a great sale at Last Call, where it’s available in sizes 0-16 — it was $648, then was marked to $369, but is currently marked to $258. Lafayette 148 New York Savannah Speckled A-Line Dress
