Frugal Friday: Soft Tailored Blazer

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

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Hot pink is very in right now for blazers. This New Look blazer at ASOS is only $38 and comes in sizes 2-14 (with lucky sizes left). It’s also machine washable. Here’s a similar but slightly more expensive blazer. Pictured: New Look Soft Tailored Blazer

Here’s a plus-size blazer in “pink grapefruit.”

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Lace Blouse

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

I’ve gone back and forth on the propriety of lace for the office — and you should know your office well before you wear this one. This looks really lovely, though — I particularly like the white, but it also comes in pale pink and black. I like the eyelash border and that it’s a pullover style and doesn’t have any zippers, so it’s really almost a fancy tee. It’s machine wash cold, which is also good. It was $89 and is now on sale for $53 at Nordstrom. (This blouse has a slightly different lace pattern and is full price.) Lace Blouse

Here’s a good discount on a much more basic white shell blouse that we’ve featured before.

Suit of the Week: Antonio Melani

For 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 for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

This light blue suit from Antonio Melani is lovely. I like the melange fabric that looks like it’s sort of stretchy — the suit looks comfortable but it’s got some structure. I also really like the collarless blazer style and the fitted look. It comes in sizes 0-14 at Dillard’s. The jacket (Antonio Melani Felicity Stretch Melange Jacket) is $199, and the skirt (Antonio Melani Denzel Stretch Melange Pencil Skirt) is $99.

Here’s a plus-size option.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Portfolio Dress

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

J.Crew says this dress is one of their bestsellers (and the reviews are very positive), and I can see why — it’s a great, basic sheath dress. I’m a fan of the “brilliant sapphire” color, but this lavender “pink wash” is lovely as well, and it also comes in basic black. I like the structured look and the texture to the fabric — and it has functional pockets! The dress comes in sizes 000-16 as well as petite and tall sizes, and it’s $148 full price. Portfolio Dress

This $50 dress is very similar, and comes in regular, petite, plus, and tall sizes.
