Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Faux Wrap Tube Skirt

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

This skirt from Vince Camuto is getting a lot of good reviews at Nordstrom — and Vince Camuto has another tube skirt that’s been around for a few years that we’ve noted in the past, also with good reviews. (It only has one size left now, XXS.) I like the pictured skirt because the asymmetrical front panel has a fun, modern look, and with the $59 price, you can’t go too wrong. Only lucky sizes are left at this point, so if you like it, don’t wait too long. Faux Wrap Tube Skirt

Here’s a plus-size option at Macy’s.

Coffee Break: Alexa Quilted Slouchy Leather Tote

This tote is one of the bestsellers at Bloomingdale’s, and a few other stores have some options, too, like Zappos, Amazon, and Nordstrom (although Nordstrom doesn’t have the slouchy tote). No one seems to have as many as Bloomingdale’s, though. I like the stitched, quilted look, and the great chain detail, and the tote has a magnetic snap closure as well. It’s $595, although the “Aged Vachetta” version is 30% off at Bloomingdale’s, which brings it down to $416. Alexa Quilted Slouchy Leather Tote

Here’s a more affordable option at Zappos.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Split-Neck Pleated Blouse

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

I noted last week that The Limited is back up and running — and this split-neck pleated blouse looks nice. It’s not too voluminous but is still very loose and comfortable. I think the neckline would look really great under a blazer, too. It comes in the pictured red as well as olive green, black, and coral in XS–XL, and it’s on sale for $29 from $69. It’s also available in sizes 0X–3X for $39 (from $79), but in a different set of colors: coral, off-white, black, and red (although the red shade is “merlot” instead of … “goji berry”). Split Neck Pleated Blouse

Suit of the Week: Hobbs

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 jacket and dress from Hobbs look like great options. They’re lined and machine washable, the jacket is a two-button style with two side flap pockets, and the dress has a lovely seamed bodice effect. In general, Hobbs gets great reviews. The jacket (Catherine Jacket) is $335, and the dress (Catherine Dress) is $285, both at Bloomingdale’s. At Hobbs, the pants (Catherine Pants) are $285 as well.

Here’s a more affordable option and a navy suit in plus sizes.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Long-Sleeved Sheath Dress in Stretch Ponte

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

This fabulous ponte dress is from J.Crew. I love the V-neck and the darts along the front — and we’re picturing it in red but note that it also comes in black. It’s available in regular, petite, and tall sizes, and the straight sizes go all the way from 00 to 20, which is great. It’s $118 full price, but as we all know, J.Crew will often have sales, so keep an eye out. Long-Sleeved Sheath Dress in Stretch Ponte

Here’s a plus-size option.

Coffee Break: 6-oz. Supima Flannel Sheet

Flannel sheets are not sexy at all, but if you’re looking for crazy-soft, thick, good sheets as the weather gets colder, 6-oz. flannel is where it’s at (followed closely by 5-oz. flannel, but 6-oz. is the softest, thickest, and most luxurious). I highly recommend them if you want to treat yourself. One of the best things to get at Lands’ End is sheets, and I have some that have been really lovely. I’m liking these flannel sheets with gray and blue options — they come in pretty much every size from Twin to California King. They’re $179–$214, but Lands’ End’s current sale gives you 31% off with code OCTOBER and PIN 3110. Another great place for flannel sheets (which readers turned me on to in our discussion of the best sheets) is Garnet Hill, such as this gorgeous set. Pictured: 6-oz. Supima Flannel Sheet
