Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Colorblocked Gathered Detail Top

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This top comes in both a black/navy (machine washable) and an eggplant/bright fuchsia (dry clean), and it seems simple yet fun. I like that it’s gathered but still a typical, classic shell — Argent is doing a lot of interesting things with workwear. If you’ve never bought from Argent, note that it offers free shipping and free returns and that sizes run small. The top is $118 and comes in sizes 0–14. Colorblocked Gathered Detail Top

Here’s a lower-priced option and a plus-size option.

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Ebienne Stripe Pencil Skirt

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This skirt from Boss has a matching top (which is on sale), but I think it’s better by itself. I love that it combines navy and black with other colors — I think it’s really fun. You can go classic with white or black or navy on top, but you could also wear a green top, or red, or purple, or another complementary color, which would be lovely. It has a hidden side zip, and (bonus!) it’s machine washable. It only has one review so far, but it’s very positive (and make sure to take a look at its size suggestion). The skirt is available in sizes XS–XL and is $215 at Nordstrom. Ebienne Stripe Pencil Skirt

Psst: A few other things that are nice and in this price range: this silk blouse, this ruffled peplum blazer, this tweed blazer, and this kind of awesome white knit shell.

For a more affordable skirt, try this one from Karen Kane, and for plus sizes, there’s this one from Nine West.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Celina Silk Top

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

simple, perfect silk white top for workI’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: sometimes all you need to make your wardrobe feel fresh again is a new white top for work — both to keep the color pristine as well as to stay on trend. This fluttery, filmy silk blouse from Rebecca Taylor looks kind of perfect (I also really like it in the black, where you can see it styled tucked in) — add a delicate pendant necklace, a great pencil skirt or pair of pants, and you’re good to go. The blouse is $225 at Nordstrom,  Celina Silk Top

Looking for a more affordable option? This one comes in regular and plus sizes.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Seam Detail Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Seam bodycon dressMango really has so very many cute things for work and play that I hardly know what to post. For conservative offices, I like the seam details on this classic sheath dress in an unusual color. It’s described as “bodycon,” but as long as it’s worn slightly loose, as shown on the model here, I think it’ll be fine. The dress will “soon” be available in sizes 2-10. Seam bodycon dress

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Martha Skirt

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This pick from Boden — the Martha Skirt — looks like a fabulous skirt, particularly in this Riviera Blue color (one of four prints available). It’s made from 98% cotton and 2% elastane, it’s lined, and it comes in petite (2–10), regular (2–16), and long (4–18) sizes. It has great reviews, as do the matching dress and top, which are called, funnily enough, the Martha Dress and Martha Top. The skirt is $77–$110, depending on color. Martha Skirt

Two plus-size options are at Talbots.

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Tie Waist Shirtdress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

 Tie Waist ShirtdressI’m usually iffy on shirtdresses, particularly for the office, but I like a lot of the details here — the collar/lapels, the self-tie belt so it can be as loose or as tight as you want: all really nice! Tahari has a number of nice-looking shirtdresses right now, actually, in regular, petite and plus sizes, some on sale for as low as $73. The pictured dress is $138-$148.  Tie Waist Shirtdress
