Leith High-Low Long Cardigan | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I like the look of this high/low long cardigan, part of the Nordstrom clearance sale — the navy, of course, is more my speed, but the rust is also nice. The sweater was $66, but is now $38.90. Leith High/Low Long Cardigan

Here’s a similar plus-size option.

Psst: See our recent roundup of the best workwear at Nordstrom’s sale.

Anthropologie Jacaranda TopSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

This top is a bit casual for wearing with a suit, but I do love it for the weekend, or even a casual office (with a suiting separate, though, like trousers or a pencil skirt). I love the deep oranges and red florals in the top — how rare is that for me?! — and I like that they’re set against a gray tee. It’s mashine washable, available in regular and petites, and $78.

Dolce Vita Harlene Bootie | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

These aren’t the most appropriate boots for a conservative office, but I lurve them for the weekend. I love the equestrian details, the buckles, and the slightly crackled look to the leather. They’re $200 at Zappos. Dolce Vita Harlene Bootie

Here’s a lower-priced option.

Felicity Coco Midi Sheath DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

This well-reviewed dress looked a bit va-va-va-voom for everyday office for me — but I could see it being a great desk to dinner dress, particularly on a date night.  I like the exposed zipper in the back, the hourglass seaming, and the fact that it’s partially lined and hand-washable.  The price is also great: it’s $118, available in four colors.  FELICITY & COCO Midi Sheath Dress (Nordstrom Exclusive)

ASOS has a ton of great plus-size desk-to-dinner sheath dresses; here’s my favorite (but I’ve just pinned a bunch of others to our plus-size workwear Pinterest board).  Don’t forget, ladies — if you’d like more plus-size content from Corporette, please sign up for our new(ish) plus-size newsletter.

Happy weekend, all!

Alexander McQueen Leather Double Skull Cuff | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

First: don’t forget to check out our roundup of MLK-day sales — we’ll update it as we see ‘em!

I’m not really into skulls for the office — but something about this really aggressive scary McQueen cuff is speaking to me for the weekend. I think it would be superchic with, well, anything, from jeans to a cocktail dress. I like this blue leather and silvertone brass version the best (it kind of says “White Walker / Skeletor” to me, but hey), but it’s also available in pink.

Here’s a skull bracelet with a lower price tag.

A.L.C. Cory Striped Stretch Knit Cropped Top | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Saks seems to have this outfit with the workwear, but I prefer it for the weekend. Note that it’s a look that a LOT of brands are coming out with — the longish skirt, the cropped shirt, the matching. For some reason this look, among all of these looks, spoke to me. Was it the black and white? The sporty stripes? The vague pareo feel to the skirt? It feels modern to me — and yet I can imagine someone like Grace Kelly wearing it (with leather gloves and perfectly curled hair). I’ve overthought this. Just let the stripes overtake you. The top is $245, and the skirt is $395. Happy weekend, guys. A.L.C. Cory Striped Stretch Knit Cropped Top

Here are a lower-priced alternative and two plus-size options.
