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.
Every so often, a “mom” brand hits one out of the park, designing a great basic piece that you’ll wear a ton. We’d put these stretch trousers from Jones New York in that category. The rise is slightly higher than you might be used to, but low-rise pants aren’t always (or even often) that appropriate for a professional setting. We like the slight bootcut, the fact that they’re machine-washable, and the three different color options (black, chocolate, and the pictured charcoal). Available at Nordstrom.com for $89.
