Wednesday’s TPS Report: Seamed sheath dress

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

Banana Republic Seamed sheath dressGreat basic dress from Banana Republic.  Sleeves?  Check.  Office-appropriate length?  Check.  No cleavage?  Check.  We like the seaming, and — why, hello, it’s hand-washable.  We also like that it comes in regulars, petites, and talls, in both toasted almond (pictured) and black.  We think the opera-length necklace is key here — it adds a vertical element, as well as some interest to an otherwise very basic dress.  It’s $130, in sizes 00-16.  Banana Republic Seamed sheath dress

Wednesday’s TPS Report: David Meister Jersey Sheath Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We begin the week in splurge mode, with our most expensive suggestions, and wind our way to Friday, where a less expensive item of clothing might be just what you need to make it to the weekend.

David Meister Jersey Sheath DressFor today’s TPS, we like this classic brown sheath dress from David Meister, on sale at Nordstrom.  It’s form-fitting without being overly sexy, can be paired with a white or beige blazer or cardigan, and can go from day to night without problems.  We particularly like the scooped neckline that hits below her collarbone — too high of a neckline can be extraordinarily unflattering.  Was $268, now $134.
