Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Printed Long Topper Button Down Jacket

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

This lovely embroidered jacket is by Stizzoli, which always makes really gorgeous plus-size things. If you wear plus sizes and their price range fits your budget, do keep them on your radar! I think you could wear this around the office or as a light jacket during your commute. I love the colors and the embroidery — it’s gorgeous. It’s $910 at Saks and comes in sizes 14W–24W, although only lucky sizes are in stock at this point. Printed Long Topper Button Down Jacket

Here are a few more affordable options in plus sizes: paisley, blue ribbon patternblack/white pattern. A few options in straight sizes are: gold floral and paisley.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Long-Sleeved Top

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

I’m seeing more and more of this sort of flared top that’s like a peplum style but not quite — and I like it. This one from H&M is machine washable and only $35, and it’s part of their very interesting workwear collection. The top comes in sizes 2–16, but only lucky sizes are left at this point. Long-Sleeved Top

Here’s an option in plus sizes (also machine washable).

Thursday’s Workwear Report: The Relaxed Silk Shirt

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

This relaxed silk shirt from Everlane comes in seven colors and has long been on everyone’s radar as a great option for work. I don’t think we’ve ever done a Workwear Report on it, although we’ve featured the sleeveless version and the rounded collar version (and we definitely included it in our roundup of the best silk blouses for work). It’s $88 and gets rave reviews, and it’s available in sizes 00-12. Readers, what’s your favorite silk shirt? Do tell! The Relaxed Silk Shirt

Here’s a plus-size option.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Seam Detail Stretch Sheath Dress

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

Readers were talking about wanting to see a plus-size pick one day every week, and I think it’s a great idea because we don’t always get our plus-size newsletter out as often as we should. We’ll try it for a couple weeks and see how it goes! To start off, this dress from Adrianna Papell is really lovely. I love that it has sleeves, and I love the jewel neck and interesting slash at the top (and you can still wear a bra with it, which is always the key to something being work-appropriate). It’s only $140, which is nice, and it’s available in sizes 14W-20W (runs large). Seam Detail Stretch Sheath Dress

Splurge Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Victoria Paneled Pants

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

flared paneled pants for workMy husband and I recently watched the Big Little Lies miniseries on HBO (soooo good) and I’m kind of now obsessed with flared pants after seeing Laura Dern’s “CEO unwinding in jeans” look several times. These burgundy paneled pants look nice enough for the office (as they should be at $720) but also fun with a sexy top for evening or weekend. Burgundy/red pants are undeniably hard to match, as several people noted in last week’s thread on what color shoes to wear with different colors of pants — I’ve worn black, brown, navy, gray, and purple with red, for my $.02. For these dark burgundy pants I’d probably go with a dark gray or black, but that’s me.   Victoria Paneled Pants

Here’s a similar option in plus sizes for $20.

Frugal Friday: Knotted Elbow Sleeve Top

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

I always like this kind of top, and Ann Taylor always provides — it’s the interesting basic, the slightly elevated t-shirt, an easy to wear and easy to care for addition to your working wardrobe. I like the knot front detail and the elbow sleeves, the fact that it’s machine washable, and the $49 price. (There is a sale going on right now wherein “a select few” full price pieces are 50% off; alas, this is not among them.) It’s available in three colors, online exclusively. Knotted Elbow-Sleeve Top
