Thursday’s Workwear Report: Midi Dress with Elastic Waist Detail

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

Happy Thursday! This midi dress with an inset elastic waist has a stylish look to it — and I love that deep teal color and its perfect midi length. The dress also comes in regular and tall sizes, but the teal color is only in plus sizes 12–24. Nice. Also really nice: It’s only $60 at ASOS and is machine washable.  ASOS CURVE Midi Dress with Elastic Waist Detail

Suit of the Week: Boss

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.

Happy Wednesday! I’m not usually one for pinstriped suits, but this suit looks absolutely fabulous. I love the high, round neckline and lack of collar, along with the double peplum and pockets lower down. The print itself isn’t what I would call a true pinstripe with a thin, crisp line but rather a chalky hint of a stripe throughout the jacket, which I like because I think it makes it more versatile. The jacket (Jasyma Stripe Wool Suit Jacket) is $595, and the skirt (Titana Stretch Wool Trousers) are $285. There’s also a matching sheath dress.

Looking for something more affordable that also comes in plus sizes? Here’s a navy pinstriped option at Talbots.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Madison Stretch Sheath Dress

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

This Leota dress is really lovely. Polka dots can be a little too twee for some people, but I think this particular example looks great. I like the self-tie at the waist, too. At $128 — and hand washable — this looks like a good option for work. It only has a few reviews so far, but they’re very positive. It’s available at Nordstrom, and Leota.com has the plus-size version. Madison Stretch Sheath Dress

Update: This dress has now sold out at Nordstrom, but Bloomingdale’s has it in navy.

Coffee Break: Scheila Pumps

nine west scheila pumpsBlock heels often get a bad rap as being grandma heels, and I’ll be honest: I can see it a lot of the time! These heels look like they walk the perfect line between being sleek and yet also on trend, though — and they come in SO many different color options if you like the shape you’re almost certain to find a color you like as well. Oh, and bonus: they’re affordable. They’re $20-$89 in a zillion different colors, prints and sizes at various sites, including Amazon, Lord & Taylor, Nine West, Zappos, DSW, Nordstrom, and more.

Coffee Break: Closet Organizer and Shirt Folder

If you’re organizing your closet, either as a part of New Year’s resolution or perhaps because you’ve got the day off today, this closet organizer and shirt folder came to my attention a while ago. It looks really interesting if you’re the kind of person who really, really wants to have organized shirts. (Here’s how it works.) It’s Amazon’s bestseller in its “Shelf Liners & Dividers” category, and it’s $21.99 EZSTAX Closet Organizer and Shirt Folder
