Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Optic Tweed Jacket

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

This blazer reminds me of our discussion last year about wearing tweed in summer. It’s such a fun, happy color, and it looks very spring-y and summery (even though it’s red and white, which can sometimes look like Christmas). I like the stripes, the double-breasted style, the peplum, and the folded-back lapels — I think it’s lovely. You could also wear it with a lot of different colors, like with white as styled, with light gray or navy, and maybe with a pop of green in a shoe, or even a light pink shoe. It’s $495 at Nordstrom in sizes 0-12. (Also at Rebecca Taylor.) Optic Tweed Jacket

Here’s a similar option from New York & Company in sizes 0-20.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Dosina Belted Sheath Dress

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

boss sheath dress dosinaI’m seeing a lot of this dusty olive color right now — and while olive pants were one of my surprise workhorses in the past, those were a bit of a darker green, and this beiger, khaki color isn’t totally my bag.  Still: the dress is too fabulous to not include in case this dusty color is right for you — I love the artistic, almost organic draping at the neckline, the otherwise classic cut of the dress, and the quality Boss is renowned for. The dress is old out several places, alas, but Bloomingdale’s still has it for $575. Dosina Belted Sheath Dress

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Scalloped Cami Top

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

To be 100% clear, this is a camisole — this is not a blouse. It’s really meant to be another layer — to raise the neckline or, for a desk-to-dinner kind of thing, to wear it off to dinner. You should not wear a camisole like this by itself to the office (and frankly, I don’t even like to wear this kind of thing under a suit jacket because of the extra dry cleaning — the camisole itself is machine washable, though). Under cardigans or under a semi-sheer blouse like the one we featured on Tuesday, this would be lovely. The scalloped neckline is interesting and cool and kind of reminiscent of Selina Meyer on Veep. It’s well rated and it’s a bestseller, and it’s on sale for $24.50-$34.50 at J.Crew Factory. The camisole comes in sizes 00-16 in seven colors. Scalloped Cami Top

This top, also at J.Crew Factory, has also been a reader favorite for years now and is $24.50-$24.99.

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Sleeveless Fluted Skirt Dress

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

This dress is a great deal, and it’s a nice sheath dress for someone with the right body type or who likes a high neckline. The fluted skirt is a classic and kind of sophisticated look right now, and this has features you usually don’t find in a $60 dress: wool crepe and a full stretch lining. With all these darts and seams, it would be easy to get tailored, as well. The dress is available in sizes 0-16 in black and deep sapphire at Lands’ End for $59.99. Sleeveless Fluted Skirt Dress

There seem to be no good plus-size options that are similar, but here’s an alternative.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Drape-Neck Ponte Sheath Dress

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

This dress looks amazing, and the reviews are good — when people found the right size. The common complaint among reviewers is that it’s sized large, so you may want to size down or get a couple of sizes to try. (It’s an online exclusive, so you can’t try it on in the store.) I think the neckline is lovely, and I like the 3/4-length sleeves. The invisible back zip is also very nice, and the dress is machine washable! The dress comes in pale blue and black in misses, petites, woman, and woman petite sizes. It was $129 and is now $109 at Talbots. Drape-Neck Ponte Sheath Dress

Psst: You can earn triple points today through Saturday at Nordstrom — we’ll try to do a roundup later this morning of some Hall of Famers you may want to check out on the theory of “if you’re going to buy it, you may as well earn triple points doing it.”

Coffee Break: ‘Total Motion – Adelyn’ Ballet Flat

comfortable ballet flat: adelyn total motion rockport flatReaders were singing the praises of this lovely flat recently, noting that it’s comfortable and affordable. We’ve long been fans of the Total Motion line from Rockport (available at RockportNordstromAmazon, Zappos, Walmart and more!) I like this blue version ($48, almost sold out at Walmart!) and this cute neutral tone (pictured) — particularly with the gold-tone heel.  The pictured version is $109.95, but you can get lucky sizes and colors as low as $48 at Amazon and Rockport itself. Total Motion – Adelyn’ Ballet Flat
