Twist Front Dress: AllSaints Sian DressOur daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

AllSaints is one of the stores I like to sale-stalk for modern, urban clothing (mostly for weekends) — and they’re having a pretty big sale right now. This black knit dress with a flattering knotted detail looks lovely. It was $195 but is now marked to $136. AllSaints Sian Dress

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Wheeler Pointelle-Trimmed Stretch-Ponte Pencil Skirt

Aqua Blue Skirt: Elizabeth and James Wheeler Pointelle-Trimmed Stretch-Ponte Pencil SkirtOur daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Light blue is one of my favorite colors for work, in part because it’s such an easy color to layer, as well as an easy color to complement and contrast with other colors. Wear it with a pop of red (necklace, lipstick) for a jolt of contrasting color — or try it with a dark purple blouse for a bit of complementary color. Of course, you can also layer it with neutrals and call it a day, such as pairing it with a long gray cardigan and gray shell. The skirt is $285 at Net-a-Porter. Elizabeth and James Wheeler Pointelle-Trimmed Stretch-Ponte Pencil Skirt

A few lower-priced options are here (St. John, big sale), here (scallop hem), here (high waist), and here (textured jacquard in misses, petites, woman, and woman petites).

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Tweed Jules Jacket

Red Blazer for Work: L'Agence Tweed Jules Jacket Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

L’Agence is a great brand to watch for mostly classic, elegant, slightly trendy workwear. This red tweed jacket (also comes in navy) is great –I love the fringe, the patch pockets, and the darts. The jacket is $475 at Barney’s. L’Agence Tweed Jules Jacket

A few lower-priced options are here, here (30% off), and here (on clearance), and here’s a plus-size alternative.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Stretch Knit Midi Tube Skirt

Work Skirt: Vince Camuto Stretch Knit Midi Tube Skirt Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

As far as workwear goes, a tube skirt is second (at least in my heart) to a pencil skirt with a zipper, lining, and other structure — but if you’re hard to fit, on a budget, gaining or losing weight, or you just prefer them for comfort, tube skirts do have a place in the working woman’s closet. This skirt is $49 and comes in red and the pictured cobalt blue. Vince Camuto Stretch Knit Midi Tube Skirt

Here’s what appears to be the same skirt in plus sizes (in black) and another with tons of color choices.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Side Twist Jersey Sheath Dress

Pink Work Dress: Anne Klein Side Twist Jersey Sheath Dress Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Oooh: I realize this looks just like last Friday’s TPS top, but I kind of love it in a dress form too. Pink dresses aren’t usually my thing, but this one seems muted enough even for me. Try it with navy, white, black, and gray accessories, with a possible pop of red in the mix. It was $119 but is now 40% off, marked down to $71. Anne Klein Side Twist Jersey Sheath Dress

Two plus-size options are here (solid colors) and here (prints).

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Promotion Dress

Asymmetrical Neckline Dress: J.Crew Promotion Dress Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I still mourn the death of J.Crew’s origami dress, which rode high for years — but it looks like they have a new bestseller in town with an asymmetrical neckline: the Promotion Dress. I love it most in olive, navy, or black, but I always think you can see it best on the model, so here it is in red. It’s $148 new, but use code SHOPEXTRA
to get 30% off. J.Crew Promotion Dress

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