Tuesday’s TPS Report: Iona Sleeveless Round Cutout Sheath Dress

Raoul Iona Sleeveless Round Cutout Sheath Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Let’s face it: I have rarely met a keyhole dress that I didn’t like — but this wine-colored dress has something special. I love the stretchy knit, the fun cutout, and the other little details throughout — the darts at the hip and bust, the faux-collar at the neck (which I haven’t seen before, I don’t think), and the banded waist. Lovely. I’d avoid a necklace here and go with a great pair of earrings, perhaps a cuff, perhaps a brooch or two on the clavicle. It’s available in limited sizes at Neiman Marcus — was $375, now marked to $225. Raoul Iona Sleeveless Round Cutout Sheath Dress

Here’s a similar plus-size option, and a few great affordable options.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Stellita Fit Wool Herringbone Jacket

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

Brooks Brothers Stellita Fit Wool Herringbone JacketHappy Green Monday! We’ll be rounding up the sales happening later today, but for the moment, it’s Splurge Monday! Brooks Brothers has done it again with a gorgeous, rich color in a professional, versatile blazer. I love the berry color, as well as the herringbone pattern and texture to the wool. Gorgeous. I’d wear it with just about any neutral (black, navy, gray, winter white, beige — I’d even try it with brown) and if I wanted to play with a pop of contrasting color, I’d try a dark green. The blazer is $498, available in sizes 00-16. Brooks Brothers Stellita Fit Wool Herringbone Jacket

Here’s a very similar plus-sized blazer (here’s a less similar but far more affordable option), and here’s a more affordable regular-sized option (and a much less expensive option).

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Three-Button Knit Jacket

Neiman Marcus Three-Button Knit Jacket | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I always love knit sweater jackets like this — they’re a step up from a cardigan, but less formal (and more comfortable) than a blazer. This viscose/nylon knit looks lovely, and black is certainly versatile. The jacket was $115, then marked to $79, but with today’s sale it comes down to $47. Neiman Marcus Three-Button Knit Jacket

Here’s a plus-sized alternative as well.

Thursday’s TPS Report: Faux Leather Trim Ponte Sheath Dress

Adrianna Papell Faux Leather Trim Ponte Sheath Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

We all know: I’m a sucker for an interesting seam detail. I am also a sucker for a good dark blue/black combo — and a dress with sleeves. And then when you put that dress on sale… well, consider me smitten. The dress was $118, but is now marked down to $70.80 (a lot of sizes still left). Adrianna Papell Faux Leather Trim Ponte Sheath Dress

Also nice, and also on sale: Adrianna Papell Colorblock Jersey Sheath Dress

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Knit Moto Jacket

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

Ann Taylor Knit Moto JacketI really like the look of this knit moto jacket, on sale at Ann Taylor. The faux leather details look lux, the asymmetrical zip lends a bit of an edge, and in general it looks like a nice step up from a cardigan (or step down from a more structured blazer). It’s available in regular, petite, and tall sizes — was $179, then marked to $150, but with the extra 40% off with today’s sale (no code) it comes down to $89. Ann Taylor Knit Moto Jacket

Here’s a similar plus-size pick.

P.S. Note that Nordstrom has a ton of Jimmy Choo shoes on sale as part of their designer clearance sale.  This previously featured Max Mara dress is down to $270!

Diane von Furstenberg New Yahzi Printed Wrap Dress | CorporetteOur daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Last Call has a great selection of DvF dresses, blouses, and more right now, including this simple navy wrap dress. I like the fun pattern, the close fit, and the sale: was $299, now $179. I’d wear it with a pop of yellow or purple, and probably go with a plain black or gray blazer to cover my arms. Diane von Furstenberg New Yahzi Printed Wrap Dress

Here’s a lower-priced option and a plus-size alternative.
