Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Wool Blend Blazer

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

Camel blazers are not usually my thing, but something about this wool blend blazer from Ann Taylor looks like that magical mix of luxe, polished, and comfyness. The fact that the entire store is 50% off today doesn’t hurt — the blazer (available in petite, tall and regular sizes 00-18) was $159, but comes down to $80. Wool Blend Blazer

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Scuba Crepe Sheath Dress

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

I really like the dark green teal color of this Vince Camuto sheath dress, and I also like the fact that it has sleeves, and the faux split-skirt look. Note that it does have an exposed back zipper. It’s labeled hand wash, i.e., you could take your chances with the hand-wash cycle on your machine. The dress is available in plus, regular, and petite sizes for $148–$158. Scuba Crepe Sheath Dress

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Gillis Wool-Twill Midi Dress

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

We’re picturing this Joseph dress buttoned all the way up, but you can also unbutton the top button for more of an army-green dress-coat kind of look. I like the details — the corded buttons, the thickness of the wool, etc. — and I think of Joseph as a brand where you’re going to spend money on the tailoring and the fabrics more than any sort of ostentatious design. To that end, they’ve got a really great sheath dress if you’re looking for a $500 sheath dress. The pictured dress is $626 at Net-a-Porter (marked down from $895). Gillis Wool-Twill Midi Dress

A couple of more affordable alternatives are from Barneys and Splendid, and a plus-size options is at Talbots (also in other sizes).

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Tie Front Cotton Jersey Knit Top

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

I keep coming back to this interesting top at eShakti — like everything else on the site, it’s completely customizable, and I like the darts and the empire waist. I also really like the tie-front look because it’s much dressier than a t-shirt but it’s also not that much fussier than a t-shirt. I can see this working in a lot of different situations and offices. It’s $40, and you can change the sleeves or the length. Sizes are 0–36W. Tie Front Cotton Jersey Knit Top

Update: Unfortunately, this has now sold out, but here’s an option at Neiman Marcus.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Classic Blazer

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

This is a great blazer by Treasure & Bond — I like the burgundy color and the sort of jacquard pattern, as well as the contrast lining (which is a delicate floral). Like yesterday’s sheath dress, this is a good thing to dress up or dress down at the holidays, and the price doesn’t hurt either: It’s $89 at Nordstrom. (By the way, when you buy Treasure & Bond at Nordstrom, 2.5% goes to youth charities.) Classic Blazer

Here’s an option in plus sizes (and three other size ranges) at Talbots.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Scalloped Crepe Sheath Dress

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

In the post we did recently on how to dress like Selina Meyer in Veep, you’ll notice that she wore a lot of scalloped details. At the time, I didn’t really think of it as a hot trend — but I’m seeing a lot of it lately (and I do like it), so I guess it’s a trend after all. This lovely sheath dress from Adrianna Papell is very affordable, and you can dress it up or down and wear it to work, to a holiday party, and so on, with just a few shifts in your accessories and makeup. I like the little sleeves and the fact that it doesn’t have an exposed back zipper. It comes in both black and marsala and is available in regular & petite sizes as well as plus sizes. It’s $108 at Nordstrom and $58 in the sale color, flare red (in straight sizes). Scalloped Crepe Sheath Dress

Psst: WHOA – this off-the-shoulder plaid blazer we featured a little while ago just went down to $297, and it’s available in a ton of sizes. Holiday parties, anyone?
