Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Readers were expressing some dismay at J.Crew’s latest offerings — even worrying about possible store closures, as well as whether they’re ending their suiting line — and while I have no inside scoop, I will add another complaint: their website is ALWAYS weird for me, in Chrome at least, and I have to scroll for miles to find the description and available sizes. In any event: while I definitely agree that some of J.Crew’s current pieces put them solidly on the “why, why, WHY” train that so many workwear brands seem to be on — I do like this dress. (Ooh, and this one.) The bright, happy purple is unusual (it’s also available in a more sedate green as well as a black), and there’s something very mod about the whole design. I’d wear it either with a long pendant necklace or a brooch — or, if I had a longer neck, a long scarf wrapped once around my neck like a choker and otherwise hanging long. (Or, hmmn, the French girl scarf look — long scarf wrapped repeatedly around your neck — would also work.) Scarves and brooches are matter of personal style more than trend, though; if it’s not your style I’d stick with a long pendant. The dress is $98, available in XXS-XXL in regular, petite, and tall sizes. Long-Sleeve Sheath Dress
