Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Jodee Sheath Dress

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

Black Halo has been a favorite for years, and this dress in “cadmium” is so unusual but so lovely. I like the seaming and the sleeves, and it also has a hidden back zip. It’s such a happy, bright, yellowy-orange dress for work, so if you’re looking for a statement piece, do check out this one. Shopbop has it in several colors for $345, as does Amazon; everyone (including Saks) has it in a dark blue/navy. Jodee Sheath Dress

Two more affordable dresses are here and here (the latter goes up to size 18); here is a plus-size option.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Zillow Sleeveless Pleated Top

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

I usually think of Roland Mouret as doing dresses in an amazing, sort of vintage vibe, but this pleated top is also stunning, I love the folded, origami feel to it — and it’s somehow stiff while also being fitted. I love the color, although it’s described as pink and I’d definitely say it’s more of a purple. It’s almost sold out at Bergdorf Goodman, where it’s $1,045. Zillow Sleeveless Pleated Top

Here’s a more affordable top from MM.LaFleur, and two plus-size options are here and here.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Cotton Waist-Cincher Blouse

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

I’m curious to see what readers think of this, because I’ve been seeing a lot of tops like this one. The pictured blouse is from H&M, but I’ve seen them at Nordstrom and elsewhere. I like the the obi wrap and the corset-style belts that were popular a while ago, and to me this doesn’t feel too boudoir. It is corset-inspired, so people will have very different opinions on this — definitely know your office. I think for $25 it’s a fun look, and I like the dolman sleeves, the opening at the back with the concealed button, and the attached belt. The light beige is only available in lucky sizes, but the black and orange have sizes 2–14 still in stock. The top is 100% cotton and machine washable. Cotton Waist-Cincher Blouse

Two options in plus sizes are here and here.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Elizabeth Ponte Blazer

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

Boden seems to be quietly having a really great clearance sale, and it includes this ponte blazer that we included in our post on how to build a work wardrobe at Boden (and it has great reviews, too). It’s down to $75 from $150, and there’s a decent but dwindling number of sizes left in black and navy, with the red almost entirely sold out. Note that there’s also a textured blazer in a fun imperial blue and pink for $115 (down from $230) with the same cut and two buttons, and if you prefer the single-button look, the Amelia ponte blazer also has a pretty good range of sizes left. The pictured blazer is machine washable and is available in both regular and petites. Elizabeth Ponte Blazer

Two plus-size options are here and here.
