Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Boot-Cut Crepe Pants

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

Ooooh: love these Michael Kors boot-cut crepe pants. Beige is not normally a color that excites me (pants or otherwise) but this light caramel color really looks lux and fresh to me. The pants were $895, now marked to $534, at Nordstrom. Michael Kors Boot-Cut Crepe Pants

Suit of the Week: Michael Kors

For 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 know there are rules regarding winter white — do such rules exist for winter “nude”? (Their word choice, not mine.) I’m not sure, as I don’t think I’ve seen a nude-colored suit before, but this one has caught my eye for a few weeks now. (In fact, I just went through the archives to make sure I hadn’t posted it already!) It’s a really refreshing color — it’s got more pink in it than regular beige suits, and it somehow ends up looking more youthful than white. Can we collectively pray that the “halter bodysuit” it’s shown with is not a new trend — let’s just say I wouldn’t advise you to take off your jacket at any point during the workday. The jacket (Michael Kors Wool Crepe Jacket) is $1695, and the pants (Michael Kors Crepe Agyness Pants) are $895, available at Saks.

We are loving this “architectural blazer” on sale at Neiman Marcus — the wide lapels, the Balmain-esque shoulders — it’s fabulous.  We even love the silk wrap blouse it’s shown with.  The blazer was $1495, now marked to $672 (lucky size 6), and the pants are $695.

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Origami Jacket

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

Happy Monday!  For today’s splurge, we’re liking this sophisticated gray blazer from Michael Kors, with some really interesting detailing on the sleeves.  We like a short-sleeve jacket for days where it’s ridiculously hot but you still need to cover your arms as well as look authoritative; they can also be great for in-between weather, because you can layer a long-sleeved tee beneath them.  (On the down side, they do little to combat the industrial-strength air conditioners most offices use during the summer.)  This particular jacket, made from wool, is actually on sale — was $1595, now $957 at Neiman Marcus (lucky sizes 6 and 8 only).  Origami Jacket

Splurge Tuesday’s TPS Report: Michael Kors Silk-blend draped dress

Kors Silk-blend draped dressWe are loving this gorgeous draped dress from Michael Kors.  We love the way it blouses over the tied waist, the way it drapes in a ladylike way in the back, and the way you could throw a navy blazer or cardigan over it for the day.  Also love the discount:  was $2105, now $737 at TheOutnet.com (still available in lucky sizes 8 and 10).
