Wednesday’s Workwear Report: The Taylor 2.0 Dress

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 green (and a deep indigo as well, although it looks more purple than navy). I love the knotted details — and it has functional pockets! It feels elegant and would be perfect for desk-to-dinner, and it seems like you could wear it pretty much year-round, depending on the topper. The dress is machine washable and comes in sizes 0–16 in four colors for $265. The Taylor 2.0 Dress

Two plus-size options are at Macy’s and Nordstrom.

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Belted Shirtdress

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

I kind of have a love/hate relationship with shirtdresses — I feel like I hate most of them, but this one from 1.State just feels so cool and casual (and I think it would even fly at more conservative offices, provided it wasn’t a big day and you wore grownup accessories with it, like these pumps). I like the slight slit in the skirt and also the sort of D-ring belt, and I like the way the collar looks as well. It has a removable slip lining and it’s hand washable (line dry), and it’s $119 at Nordstrom, available in sizes XS–M. Belted Shirtdress

Update: Unfortunately, the dress has sold out — but here are options from Everlane and Mango.

Two plus-size alternatives are at Nordstrom and ModCloth.

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Danouk Shoulder Cutout Sheath Dress

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

Danouk Cutout Shoulder DressCutout details can be dicey for the office, to say the least, but this little hint of skin and this fun, bright color strike me as just right for a creative office or a semi-casual day at a conservative one. I love the asymmetric seams, the fact that it’s fully lined, and just the general sophisticated chic of the dress. It’s $575 at Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom. and Hugo Boss (where they also have it in black). Danouk Shoulder Cutout Sheath Dress

Looking for a more affordable option? This dress comes in bright pink and is $28, this $89 option comes in sizes 4-18, and this $199 dress comes in regular, petite, plus size, and women’s petites.

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Flutter Top

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

Flutter TopLoft always has cute, affordable tops for work, and if you’re looking for easy wear and easy care tops for layering in the spring weather, they have a ton of cute options right now. This gray top (also in pink) stood out because the fluttered cap sleeves are on trend, but unlike the more voluminous sleeves out there right now, these would layer nicely under a blazer, sweater, or cardigan. The gray feels very purpley to me; I’d pair it with a light blue, white, or paaaaaale gray to make it feel more springy. It’s $44 full price at Loft, available in regular, petite, and plus sizes (new at Loft!). Flutter Top

Thursday’s Workwear Report: Tie Waist Rolled Sleeve Blouse

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

Tie Waist Rolled Sleeve BlouseI recently updated our Guide to White Tops for Work and was intrigued to see how many cute ones Express has this year. I like the casual elegance of this one — it seems like an easy piece to throw on to springify your whole wardrobe. Jewelry can always be a bit difficult with a blouse that has a waist detail like this — my first impulse was to wear a long pendant necklace with it, but I think that will result in too busy of a look. Instead I’d probably stick with a short, round necklace (16″ or so), or skip a necklace and focus on other jewelry like several rings, a non-jangly bracelet like a cuff, or even a brooch. The top is $39, available in five other colors sizes XS-XL, and has a ton of great reviews.  Tie Waist Rolled Sleeve Blouse

Wednesday’s Workwear Report: Sleeveless Colorblock Dress

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

Sleeveless Colorblock DressI always love a good navy sheath dress, particularly in warmer weather where you can sidestep the issue of what tights to wear with navy — and the pink/orange details on this one make it really fun and interesting. Add a white cardigan or blazer, a pair of nude-for-you pumps, and you’re all set. The dress is $109 at Nordstrom, available in sizes 0-16.  Sleeveless Colorblock Dress

Looking for a plus size option? Here are two Alexia Admor dresses with long and cap sleeves.
