Thursday’s Workwear Report: Easy Circle Cardigan

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

This circle cardigan from Leith is getting awesome reviews, and would be great as a light topper for a casual office (or a casual day at a conservative office). I like it as styled here, with a dress, but it obviously works well with skinnier pants for work and leggings and jeans for the weekend. The sweater is available in four colors, and was just marked down from $75 to $45. Easy Circle Cardigan

Suit of the Week: Banana Republic

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.

I’ve seen so much drab, dull pink lately. Millennial Pink, Tumblr Pink — I also think of it as a Glossier or Goop pink. So it’s nice to see a bright, crisp, powder pink like this suit — it just feels different and I like it. The suit, which is made in a lightweight wool, is at Banana Republic (where it’s getting good reviews) and comes in regular (0-16) and petite (00-14) sizes. I think it’s a very fresh color, and it would also look good as separates if that’s what you’re looking for. The jacket (Long and Lean-Fit Lightweight Wool Blazer) is $198, and the pants (Ryan Slim Straight-Fit Lightweight Wool Pant) are $98.

Here’s a plus-size blazer from Talbots in a very similar shade of pink, and a plus-sized blazer and pants at Eloquii in a brighter pink.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Colorblocked Sheath Dress

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

Colorblocked dresses can be hit or miss, but I like the black, white, and checkered pattern here. I’d keep the rest of the outfit simple with black or white, and try to add texture today, possibly adding a ribbed cardigan or velvet blazer. It’s available in plus sizes as well as regular sizes for $129-$139 at Macy’s.

Coffee Break: Kelsey Top Zip Large Nylon Tote

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m always a fan of a nylon tote that zips, because it’s lightweight, durable, and easy to keep clean. This one from MICHAEL Michael Kors is a bestseller over at Bloomingdale’s and looks like a great basic tote. It’s not terribly exciting, but sometimes that’s not what you’re looking for — you just want something large and functional to carry all your stuff to work. This bag is 18″ x 6.25″ x 12.25″ and has great reviews. It’s also at Amazon in black, navy, and tan, and at Macy’s in several color options. Kelsey Top Zip Large Nylon Tote

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Metallic Tweed Jacket

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

Metallic Taylor Tweed JacketIf you’re on the hunt for a good gray tweed jacket, Rebecca Taylor always seems to knock them out of the park — this particular one has a deconstructed look with the frayed ends that’s quite cool. I like it as styled here (column of color!) with the scarf in the tie-neck blouse being a nice additional element. The jacket is $495 at Nordstrom. Metallic Tweed Jacket

Two lower-priced options are at Nordstrom and Amazon, and Nordstrom also has a plus-size option.

Coffee Break: Muslin Face Cloth

As I mentioned in my review of some different beauty products I’ve tried lately, when I tried “cleansing balms” like Colleen Rothschild and Eve Lom I really, really liked the muslin face cloth they came with for rinsing, but was less sold on the expensive cleansing balm. So I ordered a bunch of muslin face cloths off Amazon to have more muslin on hand, and after about a month of use I’m still happy I ordered these. They wash up easily, have just enough gentle exfoliating power, prevent water from getting all over the sink area, and the cloths dry super quick. These Amazon ones are slightly less soft than the fancy muslin cloths that come with the fancy cleansing balms, but they’re also a lot cheaper — a pack of 10 is $9, versus 3 for $22. I even kind of like that one side is printed and the other is plain, also, so I can remember which side I rinsed my face with earlier. (I try to get two uses out of each cloth before I launder them, but that’s just me.) Premium Muslin Face Cloth, Large Size
