Frugal Friday: Soft Tailored Blazer

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

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Hot pink is very in right now for blazers. This New Look blazer at ASOS is only $38 and comes in sizes 2-14 (with lucky sizes left). It’s also machine washable. Here’s a similar but slightly more expensive blazer. Pictured: New Look Soft Tailored Blazer

Here’s a plus-size blazer in “pink grapefruit.”

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Lace Blouse

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

I’ve gone back and forth on the propriety of lace for the office — and you should know your office well before you wear this one. This looks really lovely, though — I particularly like the white, but it also comes in pale pink and black. I like the eyelash border and that it’s a pullover style and doesn’t have any zippers, so it’s really almost a fancy tee. It’s machine wash cold, which is also good. It was $89 and is now on sale for $53 at Nordstrom. (This blouse has a slightly different lace pattern and is full price.) Lace Blouse

Here’s a good discount on a much more basic white shell blouse that we’ve featured before.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Portfolio Dress

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

J.Crew says this dress is one of their bestsellers (and the reviews are very positive), and I can see why — it’s a great, basic sheath dress. I’m a fan of the “brilliant sapphire” color, but this lavender “pink wash” is lovely as well, and it also comes in basic black. I like the structured look and the texture to the fabric — and it has functional pockets! The dress comes in sizes 000-16 as well as petite and tall sizes, and it’s $148 full price. Portfolio Dress

This $50 dress is very similar, and comes in regular, petite, plus, and tall sizes.

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: The Mona Dress

This gawgeous dress from MM.LaFleur is available in a ton of sizes in the dark navy, but the pictured cherrywood is down to lucky sizes only. This is one of their bestsellers that they’ve added sleeves to, and they still have the sleeveless version, in case you prefer that. It looks like a fabulous dress, and I love that the seams and darts seem like they’d be really flattering for curves. I like the V-neck, the non-exposed back zipper, and the seams and darts and little cool touches like notched sleeves. It’s made from a stretchy, breathable fabric (that “packs beautifully and molds to your shape”) and it looks really comfortable. The dress is $265 and available in sizes 0-16. The Mona Dress

Two plus-size options are here and here.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Painter Stripe Poplin Shirtdress

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

This cute painter-stripe dress reminds me of one I had years ago from Uniqlo (although it was a lot more affordable than this one). I love the stripe, the cuffs, and the belt, especially styled as a bow — it’s a cute and classic look. The dress is $990 at Bergdorf Goodman (and there’s a Tomas Maier shirt in this pattern at Neiman Marcus for $650). Tomas Maier Painter Stripe Poplin Shirtdress, Blue Pattern

Here are a few more affordable options, in regular sizes and plus sizes.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Short-Sleeved Tucked Ponte Dress

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

Readers were linking to this dress not too long ago — Jones New York is back! This looks really cute, and for only $28 it’s definitely worth checking out, even though it’s long-sleeved and there are only a few more weeks to wear long sleeves. Fortunately, there’s also a short-sleeved version, pictured (same price). I love the faux wrap and the thick fold in the middle — I think it’s flattering and almost architectural. The dress, which is machine washable, comes in four colors sizes 2-16 (five colors in the long-sleeved version) and in plus sizes too. Actually, there are a lot of cute dresses marked down: so many good sales! Pictured: Short-Sleeved Tucked Ponte Dress
