Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This week of TPS reports comes to you from Stephanie Rahlfs of Adventures in the Stiletto Jungle, who also shared a week of her picks back in 2011.
This Calvin Klein cap-sleeve sheath dress is an amazing plus size option for a chic summer in the office. The neckline is fashion-forward, yet still 100% professional, and the ruched waistline is crazy flattering. It can easily go from day to night with a change of accessories, plus it’s fully lined, which is a rare detail at this price point. No need to just take my word for it — this dress has seven perfect 5-star reviews at Macys.com! Of course I love the sleek black option, but it’s also available in a very pretty lagoon blue. The dress is available at Macy’s in sizes 14W to 22W for $99.98. Calvin Klein Plus Size Cap-Sleeve Cutout-Neckline Sheath

2016 Update: This dress is now in our Workwear Hall of Fame! It’s been around for eons in regular, petite and plus sizes, comes in multiple colors and prints, is consistently less than $99 (sometimes as low as $35, sometimes as high as $135 if it’s a print), and wins rave reviews everywhere. Macy’s carries it pretty consistently; it’s also sometimes available at other shops like Amazon or Dillards.
