Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: 7th Avenue Split-Neck Popover Blouse

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

New York & Company has a bunch of these split-neck blouses right now, and they’re all very highly reviewed. This floral one is really pretty, and I think it’s wearable underneath suits, and with trousers, etc. — there are a lot of different options. They’re all machine washable and around $30. This one’s on sale for $24.97. Pictured: 7th Avenue Split-Neck Floral Popover Blouse

Here’s a plus-size option at Nordstrom.

Coffee Break: Multi Huggie Earrings

rose gold huggie earringsAs I’ve noted before, I’ve always thought huggie earrings were the most comfortable to wear at work — they’re so close to the ear (hence the name) that you sidestep the “is it appropriate for work” issues you sometimes get with dangly earrings, but with more of an interesting look than you often find in stud earrings. These rose gold earrings (with a post closure, alas) look gorgeous, with just a bit of an edge to them. They’re on a great sale, too — they were $495, but are now marked to $346. (Nice! There’s also an almost-sold-out diamond version of this earring for $795.) Pictured: EF Collection Multi Huggie Earrings

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Lace Short-Sleeve Jacket

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

We’ve talked before about whether or not short-sleeve jackets are a yea or nay for work. I’m normally opposed to them, but this one could be a good look, depending on the rest of your outfit. The cap sleeves here make a big difference, and I like the round neck, the grosgrain ribbon detail, and the pleated but fitted look. I’d wear this with ankle pants, full trousers, or pencil skirts — there are a lot of options. In in-between weather, underneath it you could wear a very lightweight shirt with elbow-length or bracelet-length sleeves. It comes in sizes 2-12 at Nine West for $53 on sale. Nine West Lace Short-Sleeve Jacket

There don’t seem to be tons of options in plus sizes, but here’s one that’s part of a skirt suit from Tahari ASL.

Suit of the Week: Stella McCartney

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.

We already know I’m biased in favor of blue suits, but c’mon — if you had the money, wouldn’t you want this suit? I like that this suit looks like it can be worn in multiple seasons, made springy in the spring with lots of white accents, as pictured — but that it could very easily look more autumnal with darker accents, whether they’re neutral (black, navy) or darker jewel tones. My eyebrows raised a bit to see that Net-a-Porter’s calling the pants track pants, as to my eye the pants are lacking the banded bottom cuff and resulting slightly poufy sweatpant-look that I generally find so offensive about track pants. (They do have a pull-on waist, but hey, just what you need for all those big summer associate lunches, right?) The pictured suit is Stella McCartney; the jacket (Mattea stretch-cady blazer) is $1,515, and the pants (Tamara stretch-crepe track pants) are $650.

Looking for something similar? This skirt suit comes in plus and regular sizes, and this $123 pantsuit (with today’s sale) comes in sizes 2-18.

Psst: Does this outfit make anyone’s else’s eyes hurt?

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: V-Neck Sheath Dress

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

This dress, it pains me to say, doesn’t come in a more neutral color than magenta — but it’s a great dress if you’re OK with wearing magenta to work. I love the darts at the neckline and the seams down the front of the dress. (It does have an exposed zipper, but so it goes.) It’s $128 at Dillard’s in sizes 6-16, and it’s also at Lord & Taylor and Zappos, and at Amazon in lucky petite sizes. Tahari ASL V-Neck Sheath Dress

Here’s a plus-size option that comes in green and black.

Coffee Break: Fabulist Heels

comfortable heels for work: Anne KleinThese $80 strappy pumps have been on my radar for a while now, and for some reason I’m always amazed to see how many rave reviews they get at Zappos: right now there are 187 reviews and a solid 5-star rating. There are more colorways right now than I’ve ever seen before, too: seven color options, including this lovely rosey tweedy fabric/leather duo (there’s also a really great textured black leather if you’re a black-pump-only kind of girl). Plus, I’m always inclined to think fondly of Anne Klein’s comfortable iFlex line of shoes — I was wearing a pair of them when I met my husband.  (Red strappy peep toes, if you must know.) The pictured shoes are $80 at Zappos. Anne Klein Fabulist
