Wednesday’s TPS Report: Moss tweed pencil skirt

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

Moss tweed pencil skirtJ.Crew has a number of cute tweed pencil skirts right now. We like this one, “crafted in a deliciously nubby navy and green tweed with touches of purple throughout” — allegedly inspired by Vermeer. As with any tweed, we’d wear it with a smoother fabric on top — perhaps a blouse or a lightweight cardigan or sweater. The skirt is $118 at JCrew.com. Moss tweed pencil skirt

Thursday’s TPS Report: ‘Heartland’ Tweed Sheath Dress

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

Halogen® 'Heartland' Tweed Sheath DressNordstrom has a number of great dresses marked down to the $60 range, including this attractive tweed sheath dress, perfect for cold weather.  We’d pair it with a bright emerald or royal blue cardigan for a more casual fall day, or perhaps a winter white blazer and dark tights for a more wintery day.  Lovely.  It was $118, now $59 (sizes 6-16 still available).

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Peplum Blazer

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

Alice + Olivia Hunter Peplum BlazerHappy Monday!  We are loving this deceptively simple blazer from Alice + Olivia.  At first glance, it looks like your basic gray tweed blazer — but on closer inspection you notice the velvet trim, the flounced peplum waist , and the slight shaping to the shoulders.  Fabulous.  We’d wear it with a pencil skirt, or perhaps a high-waisted pant.  It’s $440 at Shopbop.com.  Alice + Olivia Hunter Peplum Blazer

Suit of the Week

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

We’re liking this tweed skirtsuit from Ann Taylor. Love the seaming on the pencil skirt (as well as the “touch of stretch”), and love the 60s vibe to the jacket. The jacket (Tweed Jacket) is $108, and the skirt (Tweed Seamed Skirt) is $108.

Tuesday’s TPS Report: Roscoe Jacket

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

ROSCOE JACKET Tory Burch is having some great sales, including this fun tweed jacket in hot pink.  We like that it’s a younger take on what can often be an older look, and we like the contrast piping.  For work we’d layer it with a slightly longer, hip-length top (sweaters always look the neatest, but a a nice simple blouse would be great also) and something simple, like bootcut black trousers.  Was $495, now $247.50 at ToryBurch.com (lots of sizes still left as of this AM).

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: High-Waist Tweed Pants

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

Chloe High-Waist Tweed Pants Bergdorf Goodman just added some Fall 2010 designer styles to the website, and it’s worth taking a gander just to drool — so many lovely, lovely things. For today’s TPS, we’re loving these high-waisted tweed pants from Chloe — they strike us as such an elegant, sophisticated look, from the cut and shape to the largeish chevron tweed pattern. We particularly like that the wool pants are lined with cotton instead of polyester. The pants are $1,115 at Bergdorf Goodman.Chloe High-Waist Tweed Pants
