Long cardigans: spring staple or trend from 2015?
We’ve featured these reader-favorite, comfortable round-toe flats from Børn in a lot of our roundups over the years, including our recent roundup of cute flats for the office, but I don’t think we’ve ever done a Coffee Break just for them. We’re picturing the newer knit version (also available in black and gray), but they … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Julianne Flats
I’ve mentioned before that the GiGi New York cobalt clutch I was gifted at a blogging conference is one of my favorite clutches — the color is vibrant and the embossed leather is high quality, and sturdy but interesting; it’s held up well for the three years I’ve had it (although I should note I … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Teddie Tote
Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores.

I’ve pictured the “rose ash” bt they also come in … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Drapey Pull-On Pant
We’ve featured the uber popular Felicia flat in a number of our roundups — but I don’t think we’ve ever done a Coffee Break on it. If you haven’t seen the shoe in person: this thing has some serious padding. I like the little bow on the top, and it comes in so.many.different.colors and prints … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Felicia Flat
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. We just did a Hunt on sheath dresses, and I didn’t want to include colorful dresses like this one from MM.LaFleur — but then I saw this deep plum color, which looks gorgeous. It also comes in a really nice … Read More about Wednesday’s Workwear Report: The Taylor 2.0 Dress
When I started the blog years ago, one of the first things I learned from readers was about some great brands for comfortable heels — I already knew about Cole Haan, but it was through discussions here that I discovered Stuart Weitzman and Salvatore Ferragamo. Ferragamo has higher, sleeker heels, but these low Vara pumps … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Vara Low Heel Pumps
I was excited to see recently that Nordstrom now carries Dagne Dover, which has been a reader favorite for years for their sturdy, coated canvas totes. They have several fun, saturated colors like this “Palm green” or their classic cobalt “Dagne blue,” but they also have neutrals. By way of a mini Dagne Dover tote … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Dagne Dover
This lightweight sweater blazer comes in several colors and has a nice laid-back vibe.
