Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
I mentioned this in my roundup of workwear from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but it’s too good not to feature here as well — I love the sleek, fitted cut, the lovely small chevron pattern, and the peplum details. The sale is kind of great, too — this is usually the price I see when this kind of blazer is marked down once it’s several seasons old, not new fall merchandise. It’s currently $599, but after the sale it’ll go back up to $1095. It’s available in sizes 6-16. Armani Collezioni Chevron Jersey Blazer
A more affordable version ($365) is here, or here’s a MUCH more affordable version ($39); there are also a ton of lucky sizes over at The Real Real in major brands (Akris, Rachel Zoe, Prada) for $95-$125. Here’s a plus size version in lucky sizes, and here’s a lighter lavender for $54 in regular, petites, plus sizes, and plus size petites.
Update: Unfortunately the pictured blazer seems to be almost entirely sold out (sizes keep appearing and disappearing when I check) — a good reminder that there are limited quantities at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Here’s a similar blazer at Neiman Marcus on clearance for $488.
Update2: In totally unrelated news, Amazon’s deal of the day is Shaun T’s INSANITY MAX:30 Base Kit – DVD Workout for $54 (down from $140) — ladies, care to discuss Insanity vs. P90x vs. other DVD programs you love? I wasn’t a huge fan of the old school P90X, but understand they have a newer one out — I’ve never done Insanity but just bought the DVDs.
