J.Crew says this dress is one of their bestsellers (and the reviews are very positive), and I can see why — it’s a great, basic sheath dress. I’m a fan of the “brilliant sapphire” color, but this lavender “pink wash” is lovely as well, and it also comes in basic black. I like the structured look and the texture to the fabric — and it has functional pockets! The dress comes in sizes 000-16 as well as petite and tall sizes, and it’s $148 full price; as of 2019 it’s available up to size 24. Portfolio Dress
This $50 dress is very similar, and comes in regular, petite, plus, and tall sizes.

2019 Update: We’re adding this dress to our Workwear Hall of Fame because after years it’s still around, coming out in new colors and prints, and getting rave reviews. Look for it at J.Crew and occasionally at Nordstrom!
