Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Belted Scuba Sheath Dress

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

I like a lot of things about this really cute dress from Ellen Tracy: The neckline is nice and high while still a flattering V-neck, the very slight cap sleeves won’t be bulky under a cardigan or blazer but will still provide a little bit of coverage, and it has some lovely diamond-shaped seaming in the middle of the dress to suggest a hourglass type of shape. It also has a non-exposed back zipper, huzzah! We’re featuring the dress in black, but it also comes in cobalt (and as with most belts, if you don’t like the belt you can take it out and swap it with something that’s not shiny). It’s $108 at Nordstrom in sizes 2-16 (and runs large). Belted Scuba Sheath Dress

Here’s a plus-size option.

Coffee Break: Oval Opal Signet Ring

Pinky rings: yea or nay? In the vein of “I’ll bet Jacqueline Onassis wore one,” I kind of like them — they have a spare elegance with a hint of mob-guy toughness. This designer, Jacquie Aiche, has a ton of pinky “signet rings,” but I must say I always thought a signet ring was meant to be engraved with a crest or, failing that, a preppy monogram — still, I like the fire in the opal here too much to not post. The ring is $190 at ShopBop. JA Oval Opal Signet Ring

Psst: here’s our 2015 discussion about whether midi rings are appropriate for the office.

Beauty and Makeup Open Thread: What Do You Love, What Are You Hunting

Here’s a fun open thread topic today: what makeup are you loving right now? What makeup and beauty things are you hunting for? What makeup trends intrigue you — what do you want to try?

Here’s the makeup I’m loving right now (applied directly on top of my favorite sunscreen – I don’t do foundation on a daily basis):

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Bracelet Sleeve Linen Jacket

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

As we discussed yesterday in our look at how to get Claire Underwood’s style, one of the keys is cropped jackets. We’ve also covered lightweight jackets for summer, and I kind of love this hybrid of the two. This linen-blend jacket from White House Black Market looks chic and lightweight and cool, and it’s machine washable. If you’re on the hunt for a cropped jacket, note that WHBM has a number of them right now, including another linen jacket in a moto style that’s available in cream and lavender. The pictured jacket is $140 and comes in petite and regular sizes 00-16. Bracelet Sleeve Linen Jacket

Here’s an open front linen jacket that’s available in plus sizes (and is on sale).

Coffee Break: Hazel Pump

This pump from Sam Edelman is very popular, and I love the blue color. Remember, you don’t have to wear navy with navy, but if you prefer to, this color is lovely. Nordstrom has a bunch of colors and patterns available right now, from $59 to $129. The pictured shoe is $119 and comes in a nice size range of 4-13 and three widths. Hazel Pump

(Ooh: note that Amazon has some color options as low as $35, and Zappos has a ton of options for the shoe in regular, wide, and narrow sizes. Nice!
