Thursday’s TPS Report: Silk Sleeveless Blouse

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

Everlane Silk SleevelessWe just rounded up silky button-fronts, and so it was with some interest that I noted that Everlane just launched three new versions of its’ silk blouse: sleeveless, short-sleeved, and a basic silk shell. I have mixed feelings about wearing sleeveless blouses (laundry reasons, appropriateness reasons — know your office!) but if you’re a fan of wearing them, this looks like a nice, simple basic. It’s available in six colors for $60. Everlane Silk Sleeveless

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Cotton Viscose Straight Leg Pants

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

Talbots Signature Cotton Viscose Straight Leg Pants PinkI spied these pale pink trousers a few weeks ago — they felt fresh then, and they feel fresh now. (Also, I’m seeing a lot of pale pink in surprising places, like denim blazers — and I kind of like it). The pants here are fully lined and have a bit of spandex — they’re $109 at Talbots is regular (sizes 2-20) and petites. Talbots Signature Cotton Viscose Straight Leg Pants

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Leonara Ruched Linen Jacket

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

Lafayette 148 New York Leonara Ruched Linen JacketLinen blazers are great for summertime meetings and more, where you need to look professional but can’t stand the thought of a heavier blazer — but you always have to account for how they’ll look wrinkled, which of course they will be 2 seconds after putting them on. The ruching here, I think, would be perfect for keeping some shape and style while wrinkled, and I like the bracelet sleeves and dark olive color as well.  (I think you’ll be surprised how many things go with olive green!) It’s on a great deal – was $498, but through 4/9 it’s marked to $199.50 (sizes 0-18 still left). Lafayette 148 New York Leonara Ruched Linen Jacket

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Rimini Tailored Dress

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

Reiss Rimini DressI’ve said before that I think light gray pants are even more versatile than white pants for spring and summer, and this light gray sheath dress looks amazing for the same purposes — you can wear it with a pop of color (pastel or bright in spring, and start introducing darker reds and olives in late August and September as you get excited about fall) or neutrals (navy, black, white). I love the seaming, and I think the cap sleeves look perfect for a summer blazer or cardigan. The dress is $360 (and does have matching pants and a blazer). Reiss Rimini Tailored Dress

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Short Tweed Structured Top

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

Express Short Tweed Structured Top (and: Express's Semi-Annual Sale!)Express is having their semi-annual sale right now, and there are some crazy deals to be had. I’m liking this structured tweed top, where for once I actually like the exposed zipper in the back. I’d wear it with a long pendant necklace (midriff length at least), and a pair of ankle-length pants and ballet flats for a casual day at the office. I might also try it with a bright skinny belt (belted a bit high) and a pencil skirt. It was $59.90, but is now marked to $29.99 (and take an additional 40% off in your cart).

Thursday’s TPS Report: Tangerine Herringbone Blazer

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

Zara Tangerine Herringbone BlazerZara has so many cute yellow blazers right now, but this “tangerine” herringbone blazer strikes me as just perfect — love that bright, saturated pop of color, and it feels super chic and modern when styled with all white. And it’s only $79 — score! — in sizes XS-XL. Zara Tangerine Herringbone Blazer
