Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Armani Collezioni Tile Jersey Jacket

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

Armani Collezioni Tile Jersey JacketHappy Monday! I like this shrunken blazer from Armani Collezioni — the textured jersey is a very interesting, almost waffle-knit pattern. I like. More importantly, for discussion purposes: how do we feel about the model’s overall look — the monochromatic look on top with a black pant on the bottom? I feel like it’s a classic look but one that I’ve only seen on older women — but I’m not quite sure why. I do kind of wish they’d styled it with another color instead of black, though — perhaps a dark gray, or maybe even the right shade of brown. Readers, what are your thoughts? The jacket is $1395 at Saks. Armani Collezioni Tile Jersey Jacket

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Long-Sleeve Dress With Keyhole Back

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

Armani Collezioni Long-Sleeve Dress With Keyhole Back Love. This. Dress. I’m not sure how I feel about the head-to-toe red, but the fact that I’m on the fence about it says it’s probably worth trying. But the dress — oh, the dress! Love the wide bateau neckline, the keyhole back, and the darts and pleating at the waist are gorgeous — we’ve seen a million dresses like this, yes, but this one does it the best.  It was $1,055, but is now marked to $633, limited sizes at both Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’sArmani Collezioni Long-Sleeve Dress With Keyhole Back

Armani Collezioni Herringbone Jersey DressLove, love, love this herringbone jersey dress from Armani Collezioni. Love the feminine silhouette with a “masculine” pattern, and I think the scoopneck, sleeves, inverted pleats, and concealed back zipper (huzzah!) are perfect for the office. It’s $745 at Saks Fifth Avenue.  Herringbone Jersey Dress

Suit of the Week: Armani Collezioni

Armani Collezioni Side-Stitched Jersey Jacket and Sleeveless Seamed DressFor busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

I love the look of this jersey knit suit from Armani Collezioni.  The sunburst dart detailing on the jacket looks flattering and interesting, and the princess seams on the back look lovely.  Personally I wish the dress had a lower neckline — a jewel neck or even a scoop or a V — but the seaming on the dress looks really lux.  The jacket (Side-Stitched Jersey Jacket) is $1295, and the matching dress (Sleeveless Seamed Dress) is $855, both available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

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

Armani Collezioni Ruffled Tweed JacketI like all Armani stuff, but for some reason this ruffled tweed jacket is totally calling my name. I like the fitted silhouette, the slight flare to the jacket from the waist down, the basic but interesting pattern in the tweed, and the fringes and ruffles on the lapels, sleeves, and collar. It’s $1525 at Saks Fifth Avenue. Ruffled Tweed Jacket

Loving the look of this simple wool crepe suit from Armani.  To me this is more of a winter white (and honestly I wish they had it in black or gray), but the simplicity is just gorgeous — love the single button and curves of the jacket, as well as the bracelet sleeves, and the contouring on the skirt and slight flare at the bottom are lovely.  The jacket (Armani Collezioni Wool Crepe Jacket) is $1245, and the skirt (Armani Collezioni Wool Crepe Pencil Skirt) is $515, both available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
