Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Many thanks to this week’s TPS guest poster, Stephanie from Adventures in the Stiletto Jungle.
Back in the day, as a newly minted attorney working my way up the ranks in the City Attorney’s office, I learned to love The Limited. This inexpensive mall store stocks a surprisingly extensive selection of office-appropriate clothes, including great “starter” suits for the young, fabulous and broke that are machine washable (three cheers for no dry cleaning bills!). Beyond their affordable suit selection, another great staple item to snag at The Limited is their Taped Cuff Shirt.
This basic button-down shirt comes in a variety of colors and patterns, each made from comfortable stretch fabric and cut in a figure-flattering tapered shape. It comes in sizes XS to XL and is priced right for buying in multiples. This everyday shirt will go with everything from your suits on formal days, to skirts and trousers for business casual, to khakis for casual Friday. Plus, the cotton/ Spandex blend actually wears quite well on an airplane, making it perfect for business trips where you have to go directly from airport to boardroom. The Taped Cuff Shirt is available for $46.90 at The Limited. Taped Cuff Shirt
