Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Rolled-Trim Blazer

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Rolled-Trim BlazerI’m intrigued with this blazer by Helmut Lang. From far away: it’s your classic black wool jersey blazer; perhaps a bit on the boxy side. But up close: I’m digging the interesting rolled hem. It’s $595 at Bergdorf Goodman. Rolled-Trim Blazer

Suit of the Week

Helmut Lang Smoking Wool SuiticonFor busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

Love the look of this minimalistic suit from Helmut Lang.  The smoking jacket is really what caught my eye: with the collarless lapel with contrast trim and the single button, it looks sleek, polished, and modern (and is a welcome respite from ruffles and bows).  The 2% lycra is also a nice touch.  The jacket (Helmut Lang Smoking Wool Blazer) is $585, and the pant (Helmut Lang Smoking Wool Bootcut Panticon) is $345, both available at Saks.
