Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Oooh: yes. This blazer won’t be for everyone — it’s a bold, statement blazer and can be difficult to integrate into your wardrobe — but I love a good corduroy blazer, and the fact that this one is Smythe doesn’t hurt at all. I agree with readers that black and red can look dated, but I think the whole outfit works here because the gray jeans give some visual relief. (Were I styling it, that gold tone button probably would have given me pause just because I don’t often think of gold and gray as going together, but here I think it works.) Swap the gray jeans out for a crisp pair of gray wool trousers or ankle pants, and it works for work. The blazer is available at Nordstrom and Shopbop, for $595. Smythe Leather Trim Corduroy Blazer
