Tuesday’s TPS Report: Plaxico Jacket

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

Diane von Furstenberg Plaxico Jacket Ooh: I like this DvF twill jacket. Of course, of course: I love the purple. But I like the idea of a darker, but lighter weight jacket, for in-between weather like we’ve been having here in NYC the past few days. I’d wear it with complimentary colors, probably — a light blue button-front blouse, a mint green shell, an emerald or cobalt sweater — or with other purples. It was $465, but is now marked to $249 at Last Call. Diane von Furstenberg Plaxico Jacket

(Psst: Speaking of sales, have I mentioned the new Corporette Bargains page?)

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Boyfriend Blazer With “Fluro” Trim

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

ASOS Boyfriend Blazer With Fluro TrimI’m not sure how I feel about the entire suit for this look (although A for effort, ASOS — a fresh take on a suit that also might fly in an office! Hooray!) but I actually quite like the gray blazer with fluorescent yellow trim. Love the flouncy details at the back, and the really classic cut with that pop of bright, bright color. It’s available at ASOS in gray/yellow and navy/orange for $99. ASOS Boyfriend Blazer With Fluro Trim

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Wool Boucle Jacket

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

TAGLIATORE 0205 - WOOL BOUCLÈ JACKETBoth the store and the brand are new ones to me:  the store (Luisaviaroma) bills itself as “latest collections from top designers,” and the brand (Tagliatore), upon closer inspection, is not something to serve with bolognese sauce, and is instead a suiting brand (also sold at Yoox). Now for today’s specimen: I really love this wool blazer  — the single button, the bracelet-length sleeves, the stiffish collar — love it all. And at 40% off, too! The blazer was $833, but is now marked to $500 at Luisaviaroma. TAGLIATORE 0205 – WOOL BOUCLÈ JACKET

Thursday’s TPS Report: Resort Boyfriend Blazer

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

I think this may be the first time that something from Guess is making an appearance on Corporette — yes, it’s a mall store from the 80s, but this looks like a really cute blazer.  The crisp white does look perfect for a corporate meeting at a resort (or just for summertime generally) — I like the gently sloped, almost shawl-like collar, and the slight touch of gray on the lining of the sleeve.  It’s $98 at Guess.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Proffington Python-Patch Corduroy Blazer

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

The Row Proffington python-patch corduroy blazerHmmn: I feel like a great corduroy blazer is a must for men, and I think this blazer makes a great case for all businesswomen having one as well. I love the sharp lines, the silk lining, and — why hello there — python elbow patches. I like it as styled here, with black pants and a white blouse, perhaps with a colorful torsade necklace. It’s $2,390 at Net-a-Porter. The Row Proffington python-patch corduroy blazer

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Textured Twill Jacket

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

Mac & Jac - Textured Twill Jacket (Black) - ApparelCall me crazy, but I like this cute little jacket from Mac & Jack. The flounced, flared hem is flattering, and the shawl collar is just interesting enough. It’s $139 at Zappos. Mac & Jac – Textured Twill Jacket (Black) – Apparel
