Thursday’s Workwear Report: Open Front Shawl Collar Blazer

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

This blazer is a bestseller at Nordstrom and has a lot of positive reviews. They only have it in three colors right now (the pictured olive plus black and navy) but it’s come in a ton of colors in the past. It’s got sort of a cropped, fitted look in the back with shorter sleeves, so it’s definitely more of a casual blazer. It’s hand wash cold, line dry, and is available in XS-L for $74. ‘Curve’ Open Front Shawl Collar Blazer

Two plus-size options are here and here.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Dolce Check Faux Wrap Sheath Dress

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

I think this is a really pretty check pattern, and I like the faux wrap style and black trim details and the fact that it has a concealed back zip. The only thing that makes me sad about this dress is that there’s no matching blazer. You could wear this with greens or yellows for a more spring-y look, or just whites and grays if you want to keep it classic, or pick up the black pattern and trim and wear it with a black blazer or cardigan. It’s in sizes 2-16 at Bloomingdale’s for 30% off: $89 down from $128. Dolce Check Faux Wrap Sheath Dress

Here’s a plus-size option.

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Judith Silk Blouse

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

This silk blouse is one of the bestsellers at Saks, and although it looks a little boring, it’s got a classic style and kind of seems perfect in every way. I like the pleats at the shoulders and the high, unfussy kind of neckline — it’s not too low-cut and it’ll lay properly inside of your blazer or cardigan. (This can be a great layering piece for spring, summer, and fall.) This top is silk/elastane, available in three colors (black, navy, and creme) in sizes XS-XL, and it’s $178 at Saks. Judith Silk Blouse

This blouse is $68 and a deadringer; Amazon has some options of the pictured blouse at muuuuch lower prices as well.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Dartmouth Textured Tailored Dress

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

Today we’re featuring this amazing sheath dress — I love the darts, the sort of art deco vibe to the seaming, and the amazing textured fabric. We featured the entire suit last week, but this dress is so amazing that I wanted to draw your attention to it by itself. I’m not sure exactly what to call the pattern on the front — it’s not quite a sunburst — but I think it’s really flattering and lovely. The dress is still available in most sizes 0-10 for $340 at Reiss. Reiss Dartmouth Textured Tailored Dress

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

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Stretch Suiting T-Shirt

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

I was intrigued when I saw that J.Crew has a stretch t-shirt that they’re selling as a t-shirt to go under suits, because I’ve always argued that suits and t-shirts are a match made in heaven. (They sell a tank top as well.) It looks like this one doesn’t really have a thick band around it like a lot of t-shirts do, and it seems like it has a pretty, thin layering sort of fabric that reminds me of the kind of luxury layering items you can get at Adea. (This is cotton/spandex.) From the reviews, it looks like customers prefer the tank top, but I advise not wearing sleeveless tops under suiting jackets because of laundry reasons. You’re going to be able to stretch out your dry cleaning if you’ve got your underarms covered. This top is $59.50 ($55 for black) at J.Crew, but right now you can get 20% off with code SHOPNOW. Available sizes are XXXS-XL. Stretch Suiting T-Shirt

Two plus-size options are here and here.

Thursday’s Workwear Report:

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

This is a very highly rated ponte blazer at Kohl’s, one of those places where everything always seems to be 30% off (and maybe you happen to have a really crazy coupon as well?). One of these days I’ll do a roundup of the best ponte blazers for under $50 because there are many! This comes in five colors and sizes 0-18. Unexpectedly (and unfortunately), it’s dry clean, but it’s not labeled dry clean only. Still, at this price it’s hard to beat. If you have issues with wearing blazers on top of dresses, the shorter sleeves on this one are likely to be flattering. LC Lauren Conrad Ponte Blazer

Update: Looks like this has sold out!

Here’s a plus-size option.
