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

Welcome to The Corporette Workwear Hall of Fame! The products below are best-selling, reader favorites that make a GREAT starting place if you're building a work wardrobe for the first time, revamping a work wardrobe, or building a capsule work wardrobe.

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.
These shoes are walkable but so stylish — and I love the range of colors they come in.
Readers raved about this lip balm in the post on beauty empties (as in, products they actually finish), but I wasn’t sure I needed another tinted lip balm. I gave it a try based on how much the readers love it, and now I love it as well. I have the berry/glow color. It’s moisturizing and not … Read More about Office Beauty Hall of Fame: Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balm
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m always a fan of a nylon tote that zips, because it’s lightweight, durable, and easy to keep clean. This one from MICHAEL Michael Kors is a bestseller over at Bloomingdale’s and looks like a great basic tote. It’s not terribly exciting, but sometimes that’s … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Kelsey Top Zip Large Nylon Tote
This top can be the perfect layer beneath cardigans and blazers — and it’s super affordable when it goes on sale.
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This dress is gorgeous, and for once I love it on the plus size model more than the smaller model. The only problem: it’s sold out in almost all of the smaller sizes, at least for the time being, save … Read More about Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Masha 3.0 Dress
These best-selling pumps are also reader favorites as of May 2019!
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This shirt from Brooks Brothers is a total classic and has been around forever. We’ve featured it before and it’s one of our Hall of Famers in our recent roundup of the best women’s dress shirts. If you haven’t bought one yet and you … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: Non-Iron Tailored-Fit Dress Shirt
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. Readers have always loved the MM.LaFleur jardigan (and if you read some of the comments you’ll see how some are styling it — taking out the shoulder pads, etc.). If you’re not a fan of blazers and you like an easy, … Read More about Workwear Hall of Fame: The Sant Ambroeus Jardigan
