Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Today’s reader-suggested TPS comes from reader K, who couldn’t decide between this lovely dress and this dress. As she explains, “i am loving the spark of color and the conservative cuts, but i’m not sure if a neutral colored cardigan or blazer would be enough to tone down the technicolor going on here. Of course, there’s no way to justify adding both to one closet, so i guess i will have to choose between sleeves and a longer hemline– they just feel very versatile for weekend/work/casual/evening wear.” For our money, we’d go with the Esther dress (pictured). The longer hemline does look more ladylike and professional, and the black base of the Esther dress make it easier to add a black cardi, structured sweater, or cropped jacket. If the color explosion feels like it’s too much for the office you can always wear a black crewneck t-shirt over the dress (effectively wearing it like a skirt). But all in all, gorgeous dress — we love the outline of the placket and the pockets. Lovely! Available at Tory Burch for $425. Tory Burch ESTHER Dress
