Thursday’s TPS Report: Floral-Print Pencil Skirt

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

whbm floral print skirticonI remember the days when White House | Black Market only sold black and white items — but it seems like the past few seasons they have been incorporating a bit of one color into each collection. This season it’s the lovely blue in this skirt (also in the shoes; there’s also belts and necklaces). I like the simplicity of the skirt, and the abstract nature of the pattern — worn with a black or white top and a black blazer, there’s nothing overly feminine about it. I might add purple pumps to the mix, just for a bit of color fun, but that’s me. The skirt is $88 at White House | Black Market. Floral-Print Pencil Skirt

Thursday’s TPS Report: Ribbed Coverup Sweater

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

Ribbed Coverup SweatericonI’ve seen a lot of waterfall/cascade cardigans, but none have reminded me of a blazer quite as much as this one does — perhaps it’s all of the shawl collars we’ve seen on blazers of late?  Either way, I like the look of the sweater, and it sounds wonderfully soft with its “infusion” of angora and cashmere.  Oooh, and it even looks cute belted.  It’s $98 at White House|Black Market in sizes XXS-XXL.

The skirt was $88, and is now $49.99 at White House|Black Market (all sizes available as of this AM). Swag Pencil Skirt

Thursday’s TPS Report: Silk Mini-Dot Blouse

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

Silk Mini-Dot BlouseToday we’re liking this silk blouse from White House|Black Market. We like how it’s on-trend with the ruffles down the front, but it strikes us more wearable than a lot of the blouses we’ve seen out there this season.  We also like the mini-dots, and the shirt-tail look — we would probably wear this untucked with a black skirt or simple pair of trousers — possibly accented with a colorful, slim belt.  It’s $88 at White House|Black Market.  Silk Mini-Dot Blouse

Wednesday’s TPS Report: Grey Twist Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
iconReader M suggests this lovely grey twist dress — which, we think, nearly sold out a week or two ago but is now available in the full range of sizes on the site (00-16).  We love that it seems a bit more conservative than the Black Halo line of dresses — the sedate color, the cut of the arms, even the very slight slit in the skirt — all strike us as great for a casual day at the office.  We’d probably wear it with a fitted blazer and the highest heels we could stand. It’s $148 at White House|Black Market, and reader M suggests trying code 8924 through 10/4 to get another $25 off. Grey Twist Dress

Thursday’s TPS Report: White House|Black Market’s Plaid 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.

37Pencil skirts are an office basic, and we love this plaid one from White House|Black Market. White can be a tricky color to wear, but the pattern makes this easier — more flattering on a body, and less problematic if the skirt gets dirty somehow, such as with some spilled soup or errant pen markings. We’d wear it with a black twinset and, perhaps, dark purple pumps. It’s $78 at White House|Black Market. Plaid Pencil Skirt
