The interesting thing about Lauren Ralph Lauren (and the other many names they sell under) is that they’ve had the same or similar dresses for about 1,000 years, and they’re all pretty good bets for the office — although some of them cross the line into office/cocktail. They’re made from a stretchy, almost crepe-y material — I wouldn’t call it a heavy ponte or anything like that — and they’re usually machine washable. The color isn’t going to fade, and they’re not going to pill, but the fabric feels kind of fake because it’s typically something like 95% polyester and 5% elastane like this one. If you’re OK with that (and possibly willing to wear Spanx), they can be a really good part of your work wardrobe. This pretty colorblock dress is available in plus sizes (14W–24W) at Nordstrom and is $119. Colorblock Sheath Dress
