Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This week of TPS reports comes to you from Stephanie Rahlfs of Adventures in the Stiletto Jungle, who also shared a week of her picks back in 2011. Welcome back, Stephanie!
If you’ve spent any quality shopping time in Europe, Asia, or the Middle East in the past few years you’ve likely run into COS. This super popular chain store known for affordable high-design basics has developed a cult-like following that is reminiscent of H&M in the early 2000s. The COS fever is about to hit the States hard. They opened an online store for U.S. shoppers in May; an NYC bricks-and-mortar location is in the works.
Although their offerings are mostly casual, there are many office-appropriate blouses, trousers, and dresses available at COS. I’m particularly fond of this Dress with Contrast Skirt, in the not-so-contrasting navy color option. Although it’s hard to see without a close-up, the skirt has a slightly different texture than the top portion, which adds a stylish element that won’t be too distracting for work. If you’re into more colorful workwear, it’s also available in a pink and beige colorblock option. It’s $135.00 at COS. COS Dress with Contrast Skirt
