Thursday’s TPS Report: Blazer with Longline Lapel

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

ASOS Premium Blazer with Longline LapelThis fluid blazer from ASOS is not usually my style (to say nothing of the, ah, quilted leather short shorts), but something about the blazer is calling to me.  It just looks effortlessly cool but professional, and looks like a great basic black blazer to keep in your office.  AND, it’s on sale: was $103, now $82; it’s also available in white, still full price and almost totally sold out.  ASOS Premium Blazer with Longline Lapel

Suit of the Week: Gianni Bini

Gianni Bini Bela SuitFor 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.

This navy and black suit reminds me of more expensive pieces from The Row and Smythe, but for a muuuch more affordable price. It’s definitely a “fun” suit for a casual day (rather than an interview suit), but I like it, and think both pieces would be nice as separates as well as a suit. The jacket (Gianni Bini Bela Jacket) was $139, now $83.40, and the pants (Gianni Bini Devon Pants) were $99, now $59.40.  It happens to be Cardholder Preview Day, so use your Dillard’s Card for an additional 30% discount on both pieces.

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Annie Sleeveless Top

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

LK Bennett Annie Sleeveless TopThis is exactly the kind of t-shirt that I love to wear under suits: simple, but a little fancy. There’s a great mix of silk and jersey, a bright, happy color, and it looks a little bit lux without all the fuss of a blouse. It’s $135 at LK Bennett. (Even more lux, but on sale: a similar chiffon mix top that was $345, now $172.) LK Bennett Annie Sleeveless Top

Coffee Break: Faceted Ball Necklace

Target Faceted Ball NecklaceI’m liking this pale, jangly necklace from Target, of all places. While it doesn’t look like much in this picture, I loved it when I saw it a week or so ago on style blogger Jessica Quirk — and for $16, how can you go wrong?   Target Faceted Ball Necklace

Sure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

There are a ton of cute sheath dresses out right now, so I thought we’d hunt for a few since we haven’t done a roundup since last year! Readers, what does your perfect sheath dress look like? Sleeves? Neckline? Have you gotten any amazing sheath dresses recently?

Frugal Friday’s TPS Report: Tile Foulard Print Faux Wrap Top

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

Chaus Tile Foulard Print Faux Wrap TopI’m always a fan of a wrap top, and I like the high neckline here and the interesting prints and colors. I’d probably stick with the black and white version myself, but this coral/orange print is really fun. It’s $44. Chaus Tile Foulard Print Faux Wrap Top
