Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
I noticed this “Melvina” tweed skirt a while ago and really liked it — it looks like an interesting navy tweed, perhaps with a little bit of a metallic shine to it, and it just looks like a basic great navy skirt. (And, as styled, it’s a great example of how you can wear black tights with a navy skirt.) Then, I realized it’s part of a suiting set. Nordstrom has the regular-sized jacket in lucky size 2, but the plus-sized version of the jacket is on sale in all sizes. So I went on a hunt for more matching pieces, and found that Lord & Taylor has a totally different jacket in both regular and plus. (I can’t find the plus-sized skirt anywhere, though.) So: lots of options if you like the tweed. (The skirt is on sale at Nordstrom for $73.) T Tahari ‘Melvina’ Tweed Skirt
Update: It turns out L&T has this very skirt on a deeper discount — it’s marked to $58 there; with the promo it comes down to $49. FYI!
