Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Wrap-Front Top

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Wrap-Front Top

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This top from Banana Republic is $68, but they’re always having sales, so keep an eye out — and I’ve seen blouses like this at much higher price points (for example). We’re featuring it in the “wide stripe,” but there’s also a “shadow stripe” (white on black) as well as basic black and navy. It’s getting great reviews, and it’s machine washable. The top comes in regular (XXS–XXL) and petite (XXS–L) sizes, although the petite is currently only available in the black-on-white stripe. Wrap-Front Top Lands’ End and Eileen Fisher have plus-size options.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Pinstripe Pencil Skirt

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Pinstripe Pencil Skirt

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This pinstriped pencil skirt from White House Black Market looks like a great basic for work. I like the sort of flip at the hem — it’s not too much and it makes it fun. Note that the lack of a hem means you don’t have to worry about the skirt seeming a lot shorter when you sit down. I can’t find the jacket that’s shown in one of the pictures, but if you’re on the hunt, check with a store near you, because they may have it. The skirt also comes in straight sizes and petite sizes and is the same price for each, $89. WHBM offers free shipping and free returns on plus sizes — this could be something they’re doing because their plus-size line is relative...
Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Linen-Cotton Jacket

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Linen-Cotton Jacket

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This Brooks Brothers jacket comes in a bright green and a bright pink, both of which seem like a lot of fun if you’re looking for a lighter jacket as warmer days are (hopefully) on the horizon. I love it as styled here with pink, and I love the tie-inspired print under the collar and the pinstriped lining on the inside — it’s just a really great jacket whether you wear the collar popped or not. It’s $198 and comes in sizes 0–14. (Don’t forget to check out our recent roundup of how to build a work wardrobe at Brooks Brothers!) Linen-Cotton Jacket Here’s a plus-size blazer in a very similar green.

Splurge Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Sleeveless Wool-Cotton Crepe Dress with Contrast Piping

Splurge Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Sleeveless Wool-Cotton Crepe Dress with Contrast Piping

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. I think this dress from Marni is really interesting — I like it because it has a very feminine shape while the contrast piping has sort of a comic book, witty vibe to it. The dress is totally acceptable for work, and I really like how fun and flattering it is — and a little bit different, too. Unfortunately, the dress is priced accordingly — it’s $2,095 at Neiman Marcus (and one size has already sold out). Sleeveless Wool-Cotton Crepe Dress with Contrast Piping Amazon has more affordable options from Calvin Klein and Adrianna Papell, and Macy’s also has a Calvin Klein option, but in plus sizes.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. President’s Day sales are already starting, including the big Nordstrom Winter Sale. This dress is new to the sale and while it’s obviously a casual dress, it’s a fun, easy dress that can cross seasons with the help of a little layering (such as tights and a thin, long-sleeved top) during colder months. At 5’4″, everything always hits me much longer than shown on super tall models — so I’d hope it hits me just above my knees. I’d still wear much lower heels than shown here (if not flats), and I’d pair it with a long pendant.  The dress is newly marked to $41 (also available in a fun stripe and a navy — even better for tights!) and has a t
Thursday’s Workwear Report: Polka Dot Cardigan

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Polka Dot Cardigan

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This polka dot cardigan at White House Black Market caught my eye recently, and I think it’s a very cute look. The banded waist is a flattering style, and polka dots are very in right now. It’s available in regular and petite sizes for $79, and it comes in XXS–XL. They do have a bunch of other polka dot things, including a clutch, pumps, and reversible camisole. Polka Dot Cardigan In plus sizes, WHBM has a polka dot blouse and polka dot blazer, among other offerings.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Fit & Flare Dress

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Fit & Flare Dress

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We’re featuring this Talbots dress in plus sizes but it also comes in misses, petites, and woman petites. It apparently may have some fit issues for some customers, so if you decide to order it, take note of Talbots’ return policy. This looks like a great basic because it has sleeves and a wide scoopneck and just enough of a fitted look to be really versatile — you could dress it up or dress it down. I like the indigo color, and I also like how it’s paired with red shoes, but that’s me. The dress is machine washable and has a concealed back zipper. It’s $149 at Talbots, but keep an eye out for their frequent sales. Fit & Flare Dress (Don’t forget to ch
Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Wool Sheath Dress

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Wool Sheath Dress

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This wool sheath dress from Brooks Brothers looks like a great basic for the office. I love the subtle diamond jacquard fabric as well as all of the darts and other seaming that elevates this a bit from the basic black sheath dress. It comes in both black and navy in regular and petite sizes 0–16 and is $298. (Don’t forget to check out our recent roundup of how to build a work wardrobe at Brooks Brothers!) Wool Sheath Dress Here’s a lower-priced option that comes in misses, petites, woman, and woman petites at Talbots — also in both black and navy.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Jacquard Blazer

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Jacquard Blazer

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. I’ve seen a lot of jacquard blazers that almost look like pajama tops, but the darts and the three-quarter sleeves on this one go a long way toward giving it a more tailored look. I love the paisley jacquard fabric because it’s so intricate and beautiful with the embroidery, and I like the edging as well. There’s very low stock, so if you like this blazer, grab it now. It’s at Net-a-Porter for $1,890. Jacquard Blazer Here’s a lower-priced option at Bloomingdale’s (with a subtle paisley jacquard) and a much lower-priced option at Amazon in sizes 12–30.
