Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
What a fabulous basic sheath dress — and I don’t remember seeing this one before at Talbots. I like the V-neck, the invisible zip in the back (off topic, but I kind of blame the death of Classiques Entier on that exposed zipper they started putting in the back of all of their dresses!), the set in waistband, and the extended shoulder style which is a great way to test the waters of sleeveless if you’re unsure whether it’s appropriate for your office or the situation — your shoulders are covered but you don’t have the bulk of sleeves beneath a layer like a cardigan or blazer. The dress is $169-$189, available in navy, black and gray, and available in regular (2-20), petite, plus, and plus size petites. (Note that the store’s big Red Hanger sale continues — you can check out our How to Build a Work Wardrobe at Talbots post if you want to know the store’s best sellers and classic pieces.)
