Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Many thanks to this week’s TPS guest poster, Stephanie from Adventures in the Stiletto Jungle.
For workwear that is smart and fashionable, and that you won’t see on every other working woman on your commuter train, it’s hard to beat the UK’s Warehouse. Known in the UK as a “high street” brand, this label is akin to more well known inexpensive stores like Zara or Uniqlo. Frequent visitors to the UK are likely very familiar with shopping the popular Warehouse stores — there are 10 in London alone! But, it is a little known fact that Warehouse.co.uk will ship to the States for a $10.00 flat rate. That’s less expensive that a lot of US-based online retailers.
One of my favorite current Warehouse finds is this deep purple a-line skirt. The shape and length are 100% classic, which means this skirt is right on trend with this Fall’s ladylike looks. I like the idea of this skirt with a belted cardigan and round-toe pumps for a ’40s-inspired office look. You could totally change up the vibe by pairing it with a button-down shirt and blazer, or even a cashmere turtleneck. But, a word to the wise about this smart find — it comes in UK sizes, which can be tricky. Be sure to convert your size before ordering, and be aware that, unlike mainstream US brands, UK brands don’t engage in vanity sizing. This a-line skirt is available for $80.00 at Warehouse.
