Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Great jacket from Nanette Lepore, and we’re curious for your thoughts on this one. A lot of guys’ jackets have been doing the built-in vest thing for a while now, but this is the first incarnation we’ve seen for women. We like the overall look — the satin lapels, the tailoring, the high-necked vest, the fact that whatever you wear below will peek out just a bit. But: can it work for the office? We think yes — we’d wear it with a white collared blouse and a high-waisted pant or skirt. The high waist would avoid the appearance of impropriety while keeping the proportions, and the collared blouse would help avoid any “corset” thoughts from the vest. It’s $428 at Saks.com.
