Wednesday’s TPS Report: Cashmere Coverup

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

Cashmere CoverupA good red cashmere sweater will take you a lot of places — to the office (with trousers), to a dinner party (with jeans).  Truth be told, this is always the kind of thing I wore on a first date — casually sexy and soft to the touch. It was $248, but is now marked to $148.80 at White House | Black Market. Cashmere Coverup

Thursday’s TPS Report: Elysée Sway Skirt

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

Elysée Sway SkirtThis skirt — which is already pretty cute — also boasts that it is “ultra-comfortable, washable, wrinkle-resistant and completely refined.” Sounds pretty good to me — and the fact that White House | Black Market just announced a “take 20% off the entire site” coupon doesn’t hurt matters at all. The skirt is originally $88; an extra 20% off takes it down to $70. Womens Black Elyse Sway Skirt by White House Black Market

Suit of the Week: White House | Black Market

Striped BlazerFor 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.

Reader N sent in this great suit, which she just added to her collection. I love the “ticking stripe,” as well as the details on the pockets and the darting in the front. The jacket (Womens White/Black Striped Blazer by White House Black Market) is $158, and the skirt (Womens White/Black Striped Pencil Skirt by White House Black Market) is $88. (Not pictured: Matching pants (Womens White/Black Striped Pant by White House Black Market) for $98.)

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: White House Black Market Linear Tweed Pencil Skirt

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

tweed pencil skirticonOooh, great sale on this charming tweed pencil skirt. We love the tiny black and white checkered pattern, and the classic fit of it. We’d wear it with mostly black (tights, twinset, etc) and perhaps choose a few accessories in a bright color, like red or yellow (necklace, bracelet) to make things really pop. Was $98, now $41 (selected sizes only). (Also note: free shipping through 1/18.) Linear Tweed Pencil Skirt
