Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Long-Sleeved Wrapover Dress

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

This H&M dress, at least on the model, looks like the kind of thing that an elegant French businesswoman would wear, and I think it shows a lot of promise. I would probably wear it with a camisole underneath, at least the first time (and if you’re me, a heck of a lot of Spanx). It looks like a really good option if you like elegant, sophisticated styles like this — and for only $35. It comes in sizes XS-XL and is available in black and a dark khaki green. H&M Long-Sleeved Wrapover Dress

Two plus-size options (from Eloquii) are here and here.

Psst: Have you caught the reader comments lately about Target’s ponte blazer? When a reader first mentioned it, the white was only $9, but that has sold out. (There’s a similar blazer — or some say the same — in black and gray, but right now it’s $29.99.) Here’s what one reader said about the one originally mentioned:

Thank you to whomever recommended the $9 ponte Target jacket. It’s a great deal and has the same lines as the MMLafleur. I hesitate to compare them as there is a huge quality divide between them but for $9 I am very happy.

Two things that I did with this are take out the shoulder pads (it was an easy snip), and slip stitch the lapel to the jacket on the inside so it would lay flat.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: 3/4-Sleeve Ponte Flounce Dress

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

This kind of reminds me of the fit-and-flare dress we featured on Tuesday — but it’s way more affordable at $59, originally $79. I like the 3/4 sleeves, and I like the cut of the skirt — it’s got sort of a flounce built into the A-line. The red is a bit much for me, and I’d probably prefer the navy, but we’re picturing it because it’s the one on the model. It also has a striped version. Note that it comes in sizes regular, petite, tall, and plus, and it’s machine washable. 3/4 Sleeve Ponte Flounce Dress

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Grid Texture One-Button Blazer

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

We’ve featured this one-button Vince Camuto blazer a lot over the years and it keeps coming out in new colors and new size ranges, and so on. This year’s new version has a really nice, nubby little texture — you can see it best on the red, but we’re picturing the white because it’s finally spring! If you’re looking for a good polyester/viscose-blend blazer that has a bit of texture to it and/or a white/ivory blazer that doesn’t look like a doctor’s lab coat, do consider this one. It’s only $169 at Nordstrom and it comes in sizes 0-14. Grid Texture One-Button Blazer

Here’s a white one-button blazer (also from Vince Camuto, at Nordstrom) that comes in plus sizes (in four colors), and here’s another.

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Half-Sleeve Fit-and-Flare Dress

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

This really cute dress from Lafayette 148 New York comes in a number of colors, although the “delft,” a sort of navy gray, has the most sizes left. It’s a flattering, easy-to-wear, fit-and-flare dress that’s also very elegant and sophisticated, and I like the bias seams and hidden back zip. The price range for various options at Neiman Marcus is $174-$328: lucky sizes for $174 here, and a sleeveless lucky size version for $191 in the lighter blue. Also, check this out at NM Last Call for $134. Half-Sleeve Fit-and-Flare Dress

Here’s a plus-size option, also from Lafayette 148 New York (on sale at Bloomingdale’s).

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Bianca Blouse

This is my first time noticing this blouse, but it must be one of L’Agence’s stalwarts because, upon search, it turns up in a ZILLION different colors, some on sale for as low as $149 (but in mostly lucky sizes only). For sale versions, check Barney’s Warehouse, The Outnet, Saks OFF5TH — and for full-price options in more sizes and colors, check Nordstrom, Barneys, Net-a-Porter, and a TON of other stores. The pictured black blouse is full price at $325. Bianca Blouse

Two plus-size options are here and here, both at Nordstrom.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Flutter Cuff Tee

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

I think this top from Loft has a cute and interesting take on the bell sleeve / flutter sleeve trend that’s everywhere right now. It’s highly rated and comes in sizes XXS-XL in regular and petite, in black and maraschino cherry. (Loft has lots of nice printed tees if you like them for casual days or weekends; this one is one of my favorites.) This one is $39.50 at Loft. Flutter Cuff Tee

Here’s a plus-size option.
