Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
So while rounding up the on-trend animal print pumps for yesterday’s Hunt, I noticed that plaid is also going to be big for fall. And as it turns out, there are two Marc by Marc Jacobs dresses that I think would be great for the office. (Hint: don’t wear either with leopard print. Please.) The first, pictured, has a fun ruched/asymmetrical effect going on, which gives it a bit of an avant garde look that I quite like — but it’s just a classically shaped sheath. (It’s also $198 and blue, both of which are factors in its favor.) In the other corner, there’s this lovely long-sleeved red plaid number from Nordstrom — I like the neckline and the sleeves a bit better (plus, pockets!) but it also falls way too high on the model’s leg (although the description says it’s 36″) and is a more splurge $348. Hmmmn. Decisions, decisions. The pictured dress is $198 at Bloomingdale’s. MARC BY MARC JACOBS Dress – Penn Plaid
