Tuesday’s Workwear Report: The Annie Dress

A-line Dress for Work: MM.LaFleur The Annie Dress Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

When we ran our post on 30 Workwear Brands You Probably Haven’t Tried I was pleased to see all the MM.LaFleur fans coming out of the woodwork on social media — many woman sang the praises of their dresses particularly. I like this simple Annie A-line dress — it’s machine washable, describes itself as “[h]ips-friendly, full hips-friendly, tall-friendly,” as well as “perfect for travel,” which I’m assuming means it has a wrinkle-resistant component. Lovely. It’s $165, available in sizes 0P-16 (depending on color, there may be a waitlist), and comes in five different colors. MM.LaFleur The Annie Dress

Here’s a washable lower-priced alternative and a washable plus-size option.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Duchess Blazer

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

smythe duchess blazerSmythe’s popular Duchess blazer has been around for years, but I haven’t seen this army green color before. I like it as styled, with all white, but if you’re a fan of whites, beiges, browns, army green looks great with those softer colors — it can also look great with a pop of light pink or another pastel, particularly when worn with a darker neutral like navy or black. The blazer is $595 at Shopbop. SMYTHE Duchess Blazer

I like this slightly more affordable military green blazer, as well as this similar plus-size blazer.

Psst: if you’re curious about the dress we accidentally posted first this morning, here are details on the original post from April.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Pointelle Cardigan

Work Cardigan: White House | Black Market Pointelle Cardigan  Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

A friend wrote in to personally recommend this cardigan, noting “I know you love a good cardigan, and this one is a lovely color, nice fit (3/4 sleeve), and is marked down to $30. Reviews: 3.6 stars, but some of the bad reviews complain about the color (which matched mine, so perhaps they fixed the website color?) and say it is boxy, which it certainly isn’t.” Ooooooh, love. Love! Of course I love the color, but the shape is perfect; the exact shape I was talking about disappearing on our last guide to different cardigan types.

A couple of plus-size options are here and here.
