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.
It took us forever this morning to find something for under $50 that we wanted to wear — have designers heard there’s, like, a recession on? In any event, we like this relaxed blazer from Spiegel. It’s definitely got a tweedy-type pattern, so we would only wear this with solid colors, like a black shift dress to work or a black t-shirt with dark jeans on the weekend. (This drapes a bit too much to really work as a “suit” — it’s definitely on the more casual side — but there is a matching pencil skirt, as well as a long skirt, if you’d like to complete the look that way, too.) It’s $50 at Spiegel.com. Signature Relaxed Tweed Collection: Blazer
