Thursday’s TPS Report: Lidia Ruffled Polo Top

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

Tory Burch Lidia Polo TopI saw this basic polo shirt at a Tory Burch preview a few weeks ago, and loved it immediately — it’s preppy and feminine but classic, and the tall collar would look great under a blazer. I think it would be a great top, whether with skirts or trousers. It’s available in poppy (pictured), navy and white for $95 at Saks. Lidia Ruffled Polo Top

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Theona Printed Silk Wrap-Around Dress

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

Tory Burch TheonaHappy Monday! I’m liking this beautiful wrap-around dress from Tory Burch. Love the gathered bodice and self-belt, as well as the ladylike length. For the office I’d wear it with a structured, closely fitted blazer on top — perhaps in a white or navy — and closed-toe, nude-for-me pumps. Saks has the “purple chickadee” print (pictured); note that Tory Burch’s website also has it in a navy “featherfan” print. It’s $388 at both. Tory Burch Theona Printed Silk Wrap-Around Dress

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Marina Grande-Print Dress

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

Marina Grande dressAkris has a number of scenic print dresses out right now, and I’m particularly loving this cotton shirt dress. Love the fitted style, the high, pointed collar, and the drawstring sleeves. It’s $2990 at Saks Fifth Avenue (which has some great sales going on, including a number of Wolford tights, as well as a bunch of Theory and Tory Burch pieces).  Marina Grande-Print Dress

Coffee Break: Enamel Oval Necklace

Kenneth Jay Lane Enamel Oval NecklaceThe Saks sale is now up to 40% off, with new items added — and I’m liking this simple black necklace. I think it would be a great addition to a really colorful top — even a print — and think that it’s large and distinctive enough to make it a statement necklace. Lovely. Was $275, now $192 at Saks.com. Enamel Oval Necklace

Suit of the Week

Gucci Techno Garcon JacketiconFor 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, 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 don’t know why this model looks so dour — her suit is great! Normally I would say that one does not wear a longish blazer with wide pants — but something about the proportions here looks incredibly chic. Love the slight slant to the pockets, as well as the high single button on the blazer. The leather trim on the pants is lovely, also. The jacket (Techno Garcon Jacket) is $1450, and the pants (Leather-Trimmed Techno Pants) are $640, both available at Saks.

Suit of the Week

Helmut Lang Smoking Wool SuiticonFor 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, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

Love the look of this minimalistic suit from Helmut Lang.  The smoking jacket is really what caught my eye: with the collarless lapel with contrast trim and the single button, it looks sleek, polished, and modern (and is a welcome respite from ruffles and bows).  The 2% lycra is also a nice touch.  The jacket (Helmut Lang Smoking Wool Blazer) is $585, and the pant (Helmut Lang Smoking Wool Bootcut Panticon) is $345, both available at Saks.
