July 2022 Update: There are several sizes and colors of this reader-favorite sweater in the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, marked as low as $79.
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
I’ve mentioned these before, but I’ll say it again: if you’re looking for a great gift idea for someone who likes really luxe loungewear, or has a very casual job, it’s hard to go wrong with the circle cardigan from Barefoot Dreams. In my humble opinion, I think the darker the color, the more likely you are able to wear it beyond loungewear, such as on a very casual day at the office — I have the black and navy and love them, but returned the gray one because it felt a bit too pajama-y.
There are a bunch of new colors this year, including this pretty raisiny purple. I’ve also bought my brother a Barefoot Dreams pillow, and have heard good things about the blankets — but if you’re pondering a cardigan, go with the classic.
This one is $115, at Nordstrom; Amazon also carries them. BAREFOOT DREAMS® CozyChic Lite® Circle Cardigan
