Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Aberdeen Knit Blazer

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

This bright, happy, yellow blazer is from Talbots. It’s not machine washable, unfortunately, but it does have a fun anchor-print lining and a contrast undercollar, and the knit fabric gives it a comfortable but tailored fit. All the colors (including a very nice “soft blush”) are on sale for $119 except for black, which is full price at $159. It’s got a lot of great reviews and comes in four size ranges: misses (0-20), petites, woman (12W-24W), and woman petites. Aberdeen Knit Blazer

Psst: Brooks Brothers has a killer selection of items 80% off right now — tons of shoes and bags marked from, for example, $698 down to $139. Lots of skinny belts marked to $10 and up; this purple belt was $298 and is now $58. I’m less impressed with the markdowns on the clothes, but if you’re a fan of twinsets this one is lovely.

Coffee Break: Marymid Pump

We’ve featured the Marymid pump from Stuart Weitzman before, most recently in our roundup of nude heels, but I hadn’t seen this suede pink anywhere else (because it’s exclusive to Stuart Weitzman). It’s just a really fun, happy pink color, and it’s 30% off right now, so consider it if you happen to enjoy pink suede shoes! This shoe gets a lot of good reviews and it’s one of their bestsellers. It also has a block heel, which is popular right now, and the heel is only 2.2″, a pretty walkable height. There’s a wide size range — 4 to 12 — but note that this style runs small. Nordstrom has a few colors for $225-$262 (no bright pink, though — they had purple but it’s now sold out), and Amazon has it in 11 (!) colors for $127-$375. Marymid Pump

Here’s a lower-priced option from Naturalizer at Zappos.

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Feline Peplum Cardigan

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

This lovely peplum cardigan from Hugo Boss has been around for years — it’s really become a bestseller of theirs — but we’ve never featured it by itself. Nordstrom has it in gray and “tropical blossom” (a pastel orange-y shade), and Bloomingdale’s has it in navy as well. I really like the fitted shape and the single-hook closure, and in general I like the wool/nylon/elastane blend for a cardigan. I think it looks sophisticated and also flattering for work. The cardigan is available in sizes XS-XL and is $255. Feline Peplum Cardigan

Here’s a peplum cardigan from Classiques Entier with a slightly lower price.

Coffee Break: Laptop Tote

If you’re on the hunt for either a colorful laptop bag or an affordable one, do check out this well-reviewed bag at Amazon — I’m picturing it in blue but it comes in two pinks, a purple, khaki, grey, and black. All of the colors are marked down to $39.99, and feature a laptop compartment and tablet pocket (big enough to fit “most 15.6″ laptops”). DTBG Laptop Tote Bag
