Thursday’s Workwear Report: Jane Brown Trousers

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

I’m always happy to see bootcut trousers coming back in fashion because they’re a very flattering look for a lot of women. I’ve never heard of this brand, Sentimental NY (apparently they specialize in “cocktail, evening dresses and much more”), but these pants are getting good reviews and they’re only $82. I kind of like this bright, happy blue — it’s called “new navy” but I’d say it’s more of a marine blue — and these also come in black. They’re hand washable, which means that you could probably use the hand wash cycle on your washer. The pants are available in sizes 0–14 at Nordstrom. Jane Brown Trousers

Here’s a plus-size option at White House | Black Market.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Ponte Knit Blazer

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

This blazer from Talbots seems like a nice basic blazer — it has sort of a fitted, shrunken look to it and a lot of darts for a good fit. I’m not always a fan of shiny gold buttons, but if you aren’t either, that’s an easy swap. It has a welt pocket on the chest and angled besom pockets on the front, as well as interior contrast piping, which is always nice — and a polka dot lining. There are a lot of ponte blazers out there, and we rounded them up in our post on five great blazers under $50, but something about this one looks great. It comes in three size ranges — misses, petite, and woman — for $149. Ponte Knit Blazer – Indigo Blue Heathered

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Ribbon Texture Knit Skirt

Looooove this ribbon knit texture pencil skirt for work!Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

I’m usually kind of iffy on St. John, but I’m now obsessed with all of the bright, happy separates on sale in colors like hot pink, marigold, and medium blue. I featured the hot pink twinset in yesterday’s roundup of what to get for work in the Nordstrom Fall Sale; there is also this hot pink ribbon texture knit skirt, as well as a short-sleeved jacket and dress. Fun! The skirt was $395, but now comes down to $237 on sale. Pictured: Ribbon Texture Knit Skirt

Here’s a more affordable option (in tweed) that comes in regular, petite, and plus sizes at Talbots for $109.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Dinah Window Pane Dress

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

This windowpane dress from L.K. Bennett looks great — I like the hemline and the sleeve length and the way the pattern doesn’t align with the belt perfectly. Of course, you could swap out the belt for something with a pop of color or a different kind of belt if you wanted to. The dress is machine washable, too — or dry clean. (By the way, I also love the pictured shoes.) It’s only in stock in lucky sizes at this point (the size range is 0–16), so grab it now if it catches your eye! It’s $395. Dinah Window Pane Dress

Ann Taylor has a more affordable option, and two plus-size options are at Lands’ End and Jessica London.

Psst: two great sales going on today: the Nordstrom fall sale and Lands’ End is offering 40% off your order, including sale and clearance stuff. Stay tuned later today for a “how to build a work wardrobe” installment for Lands’ End, and if I have time I’ll try to do a quick roundup of sale stuff at Nordstrom.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Faux Wrap Tube Skirt

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

This skirt from Vince Camuto is getting a lot of good reviews at Nordstrom — and Vince Camuto has another tube skirt that’s been around for a few years that we’ve noted in the past, also with good reviews. (It only has one size left now, XXS.) I like the pictured skirt because the asymmetrical front panel has a fun, modern look, and with the $59 price, you can’t go too wrong. Only lucky sizes are left at this point, so if you like it, don’t wait too long. Faux Wrap Tube Skirt

Here’s a plus-size option at Macy’s.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Split-Neck Pleated Blouse

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

I noted last week that The Limited is back up and running — and this split-neck pleated blouse looks nice. It’s not too voluminous but is still very loose and comfortable. I think the neckline would look really great under a blazer, too. It comes in the pictured red as well as olive green, black, and coral in XS–XL, and it’s on sale for $29 from $69. It’s also available in sizes 0X–3X for $39 (from $79), but in a different set of colors: coral, off-white, black, and red (although the red shade is “merlot” instead of … “goji berry”). Split Neck Pleated Blouse
