Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Herringbone Wide-Leg Pant

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

Wide-leg pants are coming back, and Theory has a great pair in herringbone. I always love a classic pattern like a herringbone tweed, and these look fabulous. I love the wide leg, and the way they’re styled on the Theory website is a great example of mixing neutral monotones and playing with textures in a fun way. (Nordstrom also has them, as well as ShopBop and Saks.) It seems like they’re more of navy close up, but it’s good to note that many people have paired them with black tops, and that’s a good option too. They’re $325 and come in sizes P–L. Herringbone Wide-Leg Pant

Two lower-priced options are from Banana Republic and Boden; a plus-size option is from Talbots.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Ruffle Cuff Blouse

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

This windowpane ruffle-cuff blouse from Who What Wear™  is available in both regular sizes and plus sizes (the regular is more highly rated than the plus for some reason), and it’s always great to find something with a size range of S–4X. So if you’re looking for a very affordable ruffle-cuff blouse, I think this would look really cute under a sweater or blazer. It’s $25-$29 at Target, and besides the windowpane, it comes in three other patterns as well as black. Plus Size Ruffle Cuff Blouse – Who What Wear™

Coffee Break: Bold Shoulder Bag

Very boxy shoulder bags are very in right now, and I find I like the structured look. The shoulder strap is adjustable, so presumably it’s a lot longer than pictured here — I like the little gold detail on the magnetic top flap, as well as the fun lining for the interior. It’s $588 at ShopBop.  MANU Atelier Bold Shoulder Bag

Looking for something more affordable? This $180 bag is similar, and this Etsy shop looks like they might be able to produce something similar via a custom order, possibly for even under $50. (Psst: which are your favorite Etsy shops and gifts, ladies? It’s a little early to be thinking about holiday gifts, I know, but we’re thinking of doing a roundup of Etsy stores sooner rather than later because sellers book up so early…)

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Colorblocked Sheath Dress

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

This may not be for the shrinking violets among us, but I think this purple dress with black details is really lovely — for example, if you wear a lot of dresses and you’re desperate for something a little different from your usual black, gray, or navy. There is a matching jacket, which I would not necessarily recommend — but you do you. I think that for $38 (on sale for $49.99, plus the discount code listed on the page), it’s a good option for a new statement dress. You can wear it with navy or red or black, or with gray — this would look great with a gray blazer on top. It comes in sizes 2–16, but not all sizes are still in stock. Colorblocked Sheath Dress

Here’s a plus-size option.

Suit of the Week: L.K. Bennett

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.

Oooh: a simple, classic, black tweed skirt suit is always in style, and I love this one from L.K. Bennett. Wear them together, wear them separately, wear them with neutrals, wear them with deep jewel tones in the fall and pastels in the spring… the possibilities are endless. Love. The jacket (Joyce Tweed Jacket) is $495, and the skirt (Joyce Tweed Skirt) is $265.

Here’s a very nice fitted tweed blazer in plus sizes in black and white, and this brown tweed suiting comes in regular, petite, plus sizes, and plus-size petites.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Stretch Wool Sheath Dress

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

This stretch wool dress from Brooks Brothers’ Red Fleece collection looks like a great basic. I always like a notched or split neckline, and although both the navy and black are shown with the belt, note that it’s removable, in case it’s not your thing or you want to upgrade to a different one. The dress also has a concealed back zip and is fully lined, and I like the darts and the sleeves. It comes in sizes 0–14 and is $158. Stretch Wool Sheath Dress

Here’s an option in plus sizes.
